welcome to the forum oh nameless one..
In lighter moments I sometimes wonder....is it an oversight or is it by design, that someone would access a group, seeking advice, wanting to be a part of something, and yet not introduce themselves, giving those approached, some inkling of who they are and possibly where they're from? John Smith from Burk's Falls, Ontario, perhaps. Not N/A from Earth. Personally, I like to see a name and location from people. It gives me some sort of feeling, a sort of comraderie, a better understanding of their situation, possible resources at hand and so on.
Like Stick for instance, I see a knowledgeable, resourceful, capable mountain man from Hilltop, Colorado. Someone that sees all things, knows all things, lives in a cave, (built himself) chews nails and spits rust, rustic, fearless, and seemingly greatest passion is to watch his dog catch fish. Or Cherryville Chuck. At peace with the world, living in Utopia on the sunshine coast of B.C. growing fruit and nuts in January while a gentle rain of perfume falls on his garden. We in the east, wrapped in wool till April, dashing off to Florida to thaw out in February. To heck with the dollar value, I wanna be warm! Okay, so I lapsed into a little poetic licence but you get what I mean, dontcha??
