Of course in my case...
First, I want to say that this thread is WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much for starting it, Jami!!
Second, I want to say that personally, I am very leery of posters who don't have AT LEAST their first name on their siggy. Makes me think there's a reason they are hiding. But, to then have neither a location (be it for real or just silly) nor any information on their profile, I doubt their intentions even more!! Oops, that sounded negative, didn't it?? I'm sorry. I just felt that was a very good point & that it would certainly humanize the poster if this was done! (Did I redeem myself?? I would go back & delete some, but I really wanted to say it all...
