Why don't people fill in the location information in their profile?  shrug At the very least fill in the city and state. Sometimes the gender and age part could be helpful when replying to a question.

Tom, I am right there with you, though I understand others hiding such information about themselves.

My screen name is my real name.  My age and location are my real ones.  I am open about who I am as it helps me to be on my best behavior with the world.  And that is what my creator expects of me anyway.  I am careful not to disclose things like when I am on a trip so some thief doesn't look up my home address and pay a visit.

Most interneters  are not comfortable disclosing such information.  With all the ways of doing crimes like identity theft, I can understand.  It is very easy to look up individuals by name, age, and region.  It doesn't take much to get a house address and phone number using so little given information.

I will PM you.

I added a field to display over there on with the rest of the info. It asks for state only. That should narrow it down enough for most states.

Re:  Not filling in the city and state.  I can understand your reasoning but I can tell you why I don't fill in the City.  Being a woman who now lives alone, I have become very careful about where I put my personal information and what information I will make readily available.  I have supplied that I live in Western New York State and also provided my e-mail address in this forum.  I know with modern technology people can get an unreal amount of data on an individual anyways. I try to think of myself as being careful not paranoid.

Thank you, I now have change my information and put in the new state field that Aimee just added.  ThankYou

 Ron, all that info you got is readly available, even in the phone book. Some of what you got was old info and is now incorrect, other is correct.  I am not to worried about the bad guys, as I just might have an alarm system, who knows, only the shadow knows.  Cheers Thank you for the information.

Ron, you missed the new state/location field that Aimee just added today. It is at the bottom of your profile and it displays in each reply. Really cool.  Wink
