Why don't we all enter in our profile the city/state we live in?

It's interesting to see where in the world people are located!

If I'm correct there are already several threads about where we all are from. Do a search I suggest :)

Right, but it's nice to be able to see that your reply comes from the Netherlands. I wouldn't do a search to find that out... :-)

given some of the hilarity that has come from other people from north carolina, asking about my location, i can't change it. ("where's that there longleaf pine deal?" "uh...you live there too, bubba.")

Because I don't need you to know where I live. All you need to know is that I'm an irreligious, long-haired American capitalist pigdog. :)

I agree with megamania that it is nice to know. But some people like the fact that "on the internet nobody knows your a dog" http://www.ag.gov.au/archived/Sig/images/dale3.jpg

lol. Is that you in your avatar?

anyway, I've had my location in for a while.. for all who don't know, it's near rockville, if you don't know that it's near silver spring. what?! you don't know silver spring!? well, it's maybe a little over a half an hour drive to Washington, DC. Now if you don't know DC, I dunno.

All anyone needs to know is that you can usually find me, Frylock and Meatwad in Carl's pool.

Oh, and that I'm from Chicago.

True, but even if you dare to state where you live, nobody will be able to tell if you're a dog. :-)

Not anymore. I think Rand was mistaken with regard to minarchism vs. anarcho-capitalism. I can get along with Randians, but I find Heinlein's vision of rational anarchism more appealing.

true but they will be able to tell your a canadian ... and some may think that that is just as bad. Also some people are scaird of cyber stalkers.

I know I have had some people on the forums say "hey I go to u of t, what year are you in" or "can you stop by and help me with my problem" It dosent bother me, infact I think its kinda cool, but it could bother some people.

I also dont mind when people contact me via IM (jabber/google talk is best) or email.

so yes megamania I understand that you would like it, and im with you in trying to get people to do it but at the end of the day its not an issue im going to push because I understand why people dont want to. At the end of the day i think its most important that people feel safe and that there privacy is respected and if that is what it takes then im ok with it.
