Come on people, if you are a "devoted" Insighter, PLEASE at least post in your PROFILE where you live. I think it would make it a lot easier for trying to assist in "problem solving" and maybe sending out invitations for a gathering or rally. Checking the data base is probably not the best information as a lot of the original members are probably gone........Just my opinion.

I agree.

Nobody can make a member fill out their profile, but I doubt privacy is compromised by identifying their city. That's not like including your entire mailing address, e-mail, phone number, etc.

At other forums, my ability to help is limited when it's for someone of an unknown location.

This is a rule of thumb - many exceptions. I have found active members tend to have at least a semi-complete profile. Members that post just a few times and leave or troll tend to have an empty profile.

If it's easy to include a place in the profile for make of Insight, that would be helpful. For instance, 2000 5-speed Insight.

Anyway, who is afraid of at least putting their metro-area of where they live? Anyone afraid of being visited by a black helicopter and incarcerated next to Saddam? :twisted:

I agree with Willie and Delta Flyer. However, having checked the top 50 posters to this site, expecting to see plenty of gaps, there are currently only three posters that do not give their home town or state. - One of which has not posted in a while and is sorely missed.

I am still suspicious of new posters with few details who only have a problem and not a very well explained one at that. Pictures would be good.

PS I notice that Rick is now up to 500 posts! :shock:

Philosophy and the 'net...

My philosophy is that, on the 'net, you have zero anonymity or privacy, anyway. Just the false sense of anonymity, and a partial anonymity that being several of quadrillions of packets can bring as you surf.

But if someone wants your info, they can get it. Me, I like to generally post pseudonymously, but make it easy for someone to find out who I am and where I live. And I try to live my life in a way that I don't piss people off who would use that information in a bad way.

That's the risk of life, though. There are nutters everywhere, and if I spend my life cowering in fear that they'll find out some personal information and abuse it, that's not a life I'd like to live.

Now if only one or two of these jobs I've interviewed for come through with offers, I can finally feel confident buying that Insight that's been sitting on the dealer lot for three months...

I think it is cool that someone without an insight is checking out the forum for insight information before he really gets one. But hopefully, with all of the ones available for adoption out there, he will pick his baby and love it as much as the rest of us love ours.

I really like the section here that you can search for insights and their owners.

Willie & I had discussed this a while back and I had agreed it would be nice if everyone filled out their profiles... The InsightCentral.net Forum team nevertheless not to make any of the profile entries mandatory since we believe supplying the info should be left up to each member. We also considered adding a "real name" (as opposed to "user name") field but decided that too should be up to each user as well.

Thanks for all the feedback.
