Where are you from?

I wish,wish,wish some of the people on DC would put where they are from in their profiles not the city or town unless you want to but at least just the state.It makes it much more interesting to see where people are from.

I agree with you. But when they put Colorado I wonder "where" since i was born in Trinidad...

Or Ca. I wonder "where" since that is where I live

Or North Carolina since that is where my DH's family is....

Not everyone is comfortable with giving out that much personal information on the internet. It can actually be quite dangerous.

I enjoy seeing where people are from too though. Not only does it sometimes help us answer their questions, but it is just cool to know where people are from.

Hello!Dove We had a conversation about Trinidad a while ago as I live in Raton,NM because Trinidad is where I go to get decent groceries.Sure I would like the town also but I guess Im trying to coax people out by keeping it simple.However I would absolutley love the town also as people here would have alot more in common this way.
GB.As far as personal info you dont have much more than a place and a user name so I dont see how that could be a problem.

People who know how can find a way of getting a heck of a lot of information if they wanted to. Trust me on this one.

Well I know that is not true jpmcgrew . You are just an upstanding person so you have no need to know any of the devious ways people can do some of these things.

GB!You are so right I live 45 miles from the nearest dinky little town and trust alot of people but I thought as long as you are careful and dont give out your social security#,bank numbers and so forth you are safe.I have yet to fall for phishers and so on
EDUCATE ME PLEASE.Other than that I have my trusty Berretta when I feel I might need it.As my biggest problem is bears breaking into the house but they dont scare me as as much as identity thieves.

I know of a person who gave out a little too much info on a board once (not this board of course). Some unscrupulous person used that info to make their life a living...well you know what. The info they gave out did not amount to more than the town they lived in or something like that. It was no where near as personal as a SSN or anything like that. This person just made the other persons live miserable in general. This was a long time ago so I don't remember specifics, but I seem to remember things like electricity, cable, phone, and other things like that being cancelled by the jerk calling those companies and pretending to be the home owner.
