I think forcing people to reveal their locations would violate privacy.
Not everyone would feel comfortable posting in an environment where they could not control how much of their personal info they would want to be in the public domain (possibly “forever” btw) .
It’s not just people who land in this forum on purpose with an interest in ADD who are likely to read all this, have you ever googled a topic you have posted on before? I’ve done a few searches just to see, and they come up in the first result page often at the top. Now call me paranoid, but even if you have a supposedly anonymous user name, some of the info revealed here is so personal and specific I think it would be easy for someone familiar with the person to recognize them.
An interesting consideration in terms of the other topic that’s been floating around the forum lately about disclosing your add or not. Now is a nosy neighbor or un-sympathetic boss likely to be googling and come upon your post and say “AHHA -I knew it!” ? Probably not, but stranger things have happened
Just sayin’…..REPORT ABUSE
