    What's the deal with not displaying your location?

    I've noticed that many users do not enter their location on their profile. I understand the desire for anonymity, but surely displaying a country doesn't void that. We're hardly going to track you down for eg USA to 350 Million, or UK to 60 Million etc etc.

    The reason I find it so irritating, is that many queries are centered around 'atomic syncing' of which 'location' is pretty critical! Also, it's just dam interesting to know how far & wide our community spreads! So come on guys, give us a clue of where on this planet you live...
    Never argue with an idiot - they'll only bring you down to their level and win from experience...

    I narrowed it down to half a state....also, don't want to be associated with the cesspool North Jersey.

    I thought the same thing??? It would be nice to know what country members are in, at least.

    Ah, NJ, the armpit of the nation. Funny to read one New Jerseyan looking down on another. I grew up in South Plainfield, BTW, and never returned.
    I'm just kidding, so don't get angry. Nobody likes a raging South Jersey Boy scaring the cows and deer.

    Really, I'm kidding.

    Well, yes....
    Where I live it is closer to the cow tipping end of the spectrum as opposed to the 'slice and a coke' end.

    Sorry, sodamonkey. New Jersey is a piece of Americana you can live without, trust me.

    It can't be described, it must be experienced. I'm in the Piney zone, work at Maquire, and very far from anything Soprano.
