I realize I'm a bit late responding to this poll, but my answer is that of course you should credit them. :)

Of course I credit them. If someone has inspired me, then they are a big part of my life even if I haven't met them.

Usually yes, because I go around and mash a lot of things that inspire me together. Since these things never get really published on the internet, though, all those things are written down somewhere in my huge piles of paper...

I don't usually credit people even when they inspire me. I'm just super shy....

It depends just how inspired by them i am. it's usually not something i realize. But if I see a piece and say "hey that's cool I want to try something like that" I would definitely credit them

That sums up pretty perfectly what I was thinking.

I'm generally not inspired by something specific in someone's work, but rather the general idea or theme.... Although if I were very inspired by someone else's work, I'd definitely credit them~
