So many cute guys on ATS. Maybe we should be asking SO to start a matchmaking site - for 1000 points you get the e-mail address of a member of choice.

Just a pilot and infinite8 nice pics.

My email is in my profile I think. Same as AIM id.

Funny replies too. I guess the mental picture maker in my head is off. I don't think the image I had of anyone was close.

I was talking to another member who mentioned that ATS should have a section, maybe even with a persons profile where a picture can be posted.

Mynaeris you are far to kind.

Being unawares that graphical icon images have gender designations, I was naturally alarmed and concerned about the possibilities of reproducing icons here on above secret tops. Has there been appropriate conditions and determinations place within the means of this grandios website to avail these icons of appropriate contraceptice devices to prevent the overrun associated with an icon population explosion? Such an event would certainly result in a confusing and bandwidth crippling event here on the secret tops above!!!

Ah ... waves hand to get attention....
Sorry to bust your party up but the flag idea sucks, as does the gender idea.

The LESS personal information you disclose the BETTER you are treated and respected on a messageboard.

That way all you have to be judged by are your posts, your content, and your opinions. And thats the way it should be. No deferriing to age or gender. No favoritism owing to nationality.

If I had my flag by my name, how many people would take my opinons on American topics seriously when by looking at my flag they could see I wasn't American? (seen that biasness here during the elections)

If I was 12 how much weight would be attached to my posts by people who are older, and consider themselves wiser? When tradtionally kids are given less respect for their ideas.

And finally if we know you are a female and you say something I don't like how much more would you be dismissed as a "silly bitch" or similar without giving weight to your opinion. (of course this is an example not to be sexist. )

Humanity makes psychological shortcuts when it comes to judging people. These shortcuts are called Heuristics. (for example: -" Just ignore what I say, what does a dumb honky know anyway?").

You don't make them consciously, but subconsciously so you judge the content of a person words by the mental shortcut you have of what you expect that person to be like (Ever see a chinese person speak english with an American accent or british accent? It throws you at first as you expct them to have a Chinese accent)

One of the joys of a messageboard is that your age, gender, occupation, social status, nationality, rank, money, qualifications, etc don't mean a thing, its your posts that count.

I totally agree Netchicken, but its still neat to see peoples real picture. Then theres the fact that poeple can almost tell who a person is from thier posts, but not always. I'm not afraid to be judged, since I'm doing this to help or to rant. If you get into lots of debates, then I'd say its an issue.

Hehe ATS dating service "deny lonliness".

What will be interesting to see is how you are treated differently from the way you were before AFTER a picture is posted.

Okay...I'm guessing/expecting that this issue has been well and truly discussed, debated, spammed etc in these 19 pages.

If you feel you would like to continue on with the discussion, might I suggest taking it to Chit Chat on BelowTopSecret.
