Why don't Inmates put their real location in their profile?
 
Why do some Inmates feel compelled to put stupid content in the "Location" section of their profile? I understand not putting their street address, and maybe their city, but if anonymity is a concern, I think that can be achieved even if he lists his state/province.

A poster's location is relevant in many threads to put context to his comments. For example, some guy says he runs 20w50 in a bike that the manufacturer recommends 10w40. His location would be relevant in trying to figure out why he's using the oil weight he is using.

There should be some enforcement of content in the Location section of the profile. No location, no posting.

I was also wondering the same thing, some of these guys under location it will say some stupid shit like

Location :always here: or :south side of freedom:, its idiotic for sure imo.

Same thing with covering up the license plate numbers, tools.

The secrecy burns my goat for many of the same reasons. Type of gear, oil, local roads and lots of other things would be useful with a location other than: dark side of the moon, or on your mom's couch. Ok the last one is funny.

I've often wondered the same thing. I can see if you have something that is funny, but if your doing it to be ananymous seems a little much on a motorcycle forum.

Well, that's an intelligent answer. You must be a frequent poster in the Jo Momma section.

And good keyboarding skills. Next time, lay off the alcohol before you hit the forums.

Uhummp ...
A poster could change their location .. making older posts with oil/routes look strange..

A poster could be on tour .. making those post look strange...

Then there are just plain strange posters .. who make strange posts.

I'm more inclined to just say, put SOMETHING there rather than nothing at all. There's something to be said for creativity. What exactly, I don't know, but something. :)
