Why exactly is this a category on the QBwiki? Is this a category people want to have? -Chris Chiego

I think it would be good to have some information on the demographics of quizbowl, but this isn't a good way to do it. Jonah (talk) 08:00, 11 December 2020 (CST)
Quizbowl is disproportionately Jewish compared to the overall US population. Back when this wiki had about 50 people, it was kind of fun to recognize who was a fellow tribesperson. I used the category, and most other people who used it were also Jews. With 1000 people, that fun is gone, and with the internet containing as much antisemitism as it does, it would be easy for people new to this site to misinterpret why this category exists.
