You don't even need to post a picture and you can have any name. So why be so paranoid?
... or is it just an easy way to avoid filling up all those details required on a profile?
I think people on GAG have a general tendency to think that every question is some kind of finger pointing at them or it is trying to raise some kind of debate. That is why the culture of GAG is to shoot zingers and counter zingers. All I wanted to gauge was if GAG is beginning to be just another form of Facebook or a socializing website rather than a Q&A site.
...and I just changed my profile. I think that will make some people happy.
I think you're underestimating how pathetic certain users are.
Case in point, *as soon* as I would open my profile up, somebody would start reporting all my obsolete answers from 6 months ago.
Now if someone's existence is that devoid of meaning that they actually trawl through my answers until they found something mildly objectionable, it just goes to show you can't be too cautious where internet privacy is concerned. Most are harmlessly creepy, there's the odd malevolent few though.
Some people don't like it. I'm not even on fb. Maybe the people are answering/ asking questions with sensitive information on it that could identify them in their own mind to friends/ family etc. some people don't gage how insignificant we all are.
