    I wonder why so many choose to withhold their country/home town?

    Some of us have had people stalk us on the internet before (or see the potential) and choose to publicize neither our home towns nor our real names for security reasons. Some of us just feel more comfortable being anonymous. And some probably don't care either way and are just too lazy to plug in the info. :lol:

    Internet stalkers are quite rare though. Most stalkers you collect in you life, are people of the opposite gender you actually met in person ...

    I agree, and I'd rather have the internet kind if I had to choose, but I can tell you from experience, the internet ones aren't very fun either.

    I think some folks just like their privacy - nothing more than that.

    I once had a male stalker .... so if you are female, that would already be quite an improvement ;)

    Yes, female. :thumbup:

    I will tell Geordieboy that I'm actually a Geordie by birth, though I wasn't raised there. ;)

    I'm proud of where I'm from and I always share it. It's not like I am giving you my home address...

    I think the Tax man is stalking me... and probably my ex-wife... so no way am I going to tell people that I live in Kyzyl!

    If I were from somewhere exciting i'd be blabbing about it. But really, Minnesota is pretty lame.
