Default Re: sprocketless design

... a not unwarranted interweb paranoia, generally speaking it's but a healthy practice to give out as little personal information as possible (our aliases/usernames would be a prime example). While things like general location is easily determined by anyone interested and in fact is harmless, even helpful data in our case - it simply becomes a habit to not volunteer such when signing up to a new, unexplored place.

Heck - when I first joined I didn't fill out my profile at all beyond "otherwhere" as my location lol, it was only later when I became comfortable (and requested to) did I put Maine as my home.

It's more the inappropriate self promotion that I think Tom has a problem with, the lack of background info simply compounds it *shrug*
