    I live in Arlington, Northern Virginia. Look to the left, you can see this plainly.

    Why do so many people here not share their location? So many times knowing where someone lives would be helpful and relevant in understanding what a poster writes.

    What stops all of you paranoids from sharing the general area where you live here on G.T.?

    I have my state posted. That is all that really matters and it’s also about one’s comfort level. :cool:

    They need to read up on how the net works. Pretty easy to track someone down.

    Comfort level with what?

    I know you live in Portage, near Kalamazoo, home of my birth (how's the river smelling this spring?). How does that help me "track you down?" Portage/K-Zoo gots lots of people.

    More importantly, why does anyone think people are out to "track them down"? This is the question that leads me to think there's too much paranoia in this world.

    Notice no one that doesn't have their general location posted is not replying?

    Freakin' weirdos.:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

    Too many people with visions of "It puts the lotion on it's skin. It does this, or it gets the hose."

    Internet stalkers. I've had one from GT. I do post where I live, I'm not that hard to find, but why make it easier. Not to mention, advertising you have guns,what your security systems are, etc., might as well make them work for it.

    I'm not suggesting people post their addresses and such. Just a general (North West Mississippi) locale. It just helps to understand people's views on things.

    Knowing someone's general location is also very helpful when discussing legal matters. Castle Doctrine is a prime example. Many states have it, and those that live in states that don't, have little knowledge of what it means. When discussing Castle Doctrine, it's very helpful to know what State someone lives in.

    I've never actually posted my address, but in early days I posted enough that someone got a picture of THE BACK OF MY HOUSE, so, you'd be surprised.

    Right...

    But you're still with us. No one has dropped you in a well in a basement.

    Although it sounds as if there's a few candidates responding in this thread.:rofl::rofl:

    C'mon dear, leave the dark side and come back to the light. Just share your state.:supergrin:

    "yet"...:tongueout:


    Honestly, I don't actively worry about it, but I don't go out of my way to encourage it either! I still can't believe I've never run into a GT'er in public on a bad hair day.
