Not too bothered about snooping either - In fact the thought of some marketing chap looking at my details and thinking "what exactly am I supposed to sell to this guy?" somewhat amuses me. As for "fairly normal folk" I think the general public sees us differently - the terms trainspotter and chuffernutter spring to mind. So why is it that if five blokes sit in the pub talking about won this or that football match it is seen as "cool" but if the same five chaps sit talking about loco differences we are suddenly all nerds? Both groups have a head for facts and figures!
