Do you know and I know we have been here before, but I really do wish our members would put their location in their profile. It helps so much when giving a reply. If you are worried about GCHQ getting hold of your details then just a country would do. North South East or West. Just a rough area.
Rough area? Well, that's just north of the Watford Gap, innit.  :o

Agreed Nick, but we can't force people to give a location.  If we make it mandatory those who don't want to show their location will just put in something false and then we are even worse off.

I tend to agree with Nick; just knowing roughly where someone is can make all the difference between offering a constructive comment or appearing a complete (insert derogatory term of national choice). True, you can sometimes make a guess at a likely location based on  English usage, but it would be so much easier....... after all, we're not expecting detailed address, postcode (see, that tells you I'm not in the US!), blood group, shoe size and passport number - just a continent would be a good start!

I live in Swanage, population 5000 (in winter) you can find me if you really want. Most double glazing firms do!  :-\
Oh and I've just had a man come round saying he's got a load of carpet and Tarmac left over from a previous job. Have we been here before?

It's particularly important in the For Sale section ... very disappointing to find that the box you fancy is located on the wrong side of the pond!  :(
