Most Oregonians believe that they live so far from the Federal capital that it may as well be the South Pole. Thusly, independent of Dmknoiygba, I admitted to being a resident of Antartica.

Wow, I didn't know that Iceland lies over two different plates. Makes sense when I think about it.

I live in Australia, and I'm disappointed that there was no Westeros option.

Well, in the sense of being a piece of land surrounded by water, of course it's an island, but so are all the other continents.

There is quite a difference between an island and a continent-pretty much area of land. Australia is a lot smaller than every other continent but it's larger than any island, so it's in between?

Australia is thus too small to be a continent but to big to be an island, and hence does not exist.
I have long suspected that somewhere so nice was a figment of the imagination, and for this reason will have to explain to my beloved he really can't emigrate there.

Again, geologically speaking, a good definition for a continent is a landmass with its own plate. Australia isn't quite alone on its plate, but the small piece of Asia notwithstanding it's the major landmass and therefore deserves continental plate tectonic status.

—Alorael, who wonders if non-continental landmasses are incontinent. Or is that more properly the term for a region of a subdivided continent?

On the basis that you are posting, have a work email address (which works and that I have mailed to), and the fact that you're doing stuff. :P

On the basis of positive Google results.

And if you still aren't convinced, then you are a figment of Dikiyoba's imagination and not the other way around. :P

Since we all are the different personalities of one schizophrenic, who is being a fan of spiderweb games and buys them everytime another one personality appear, we do exist. We can see the proof everytime we look into the mirror. So why arguing? :P

I don't see how this really matters. The purpose of the poll was to see how many places have members on these forums, how far spread the members are, and which areas contain the most members. There's no reason to get technical. This is what my counseler calls "over-analyzation parylization," where you're so concentrated on the details you miss the message. Also, I hope I didn't offend anyone from Antarctica with the comment in the poll. I thought only the people studying it resided there. Would one of you care to clarify that for me? I'm curious.

Is English your counsellor's second language? "Analysis paralysis" is the snappier and more typical form of the phrase.

It was a joke.

Also, schizophrenia is not multiple personalities. Multiple personalities is its own disorder.

You meant that we're hearing voices and switching personalities, apparently.

Multiple personalities are internal. We're all different voices heard by one schizophrenic externally, obviously. Or maybe the multiple personalities make it obvious that we have multiple personality disorder, but we also have schizophrenia and that needed to be explicitly stated.

While it's apparently accepted, I think conversational drift is a better term for what happened here. Analysis paralysis in its slightly more technical application has to do with the waste of resources on examination instead of production. Conversationally, the same could apply if there were a point to the discussion and it got lost in side discussions. There is, however, no real point to the discussion here.

—Alorael, who wouldn't even say that the original census was harmed by continent definitions. It's still perfectly clear what the votes mean and it's quite easy to vote.
