Who are you people?

Just reached my 10 posts, hooray for me. A brief intro would be to read my profile. Which leads to my question--I'm curious why so many DU members, even long-timers, seem to have no profile info at all posted? I know the purpose of the site is to discuss issues, but I'm also hoping there's some "social" aspect as well, and it would be nice to get a brief look at the person behind the post.

Anyway, this seems like a great site and I look forward to mixing it up some with y'all.

1. Welcome, and don't be put off by so few replies. It's the holidays, ya know.

Glad you're here.

2. Welcome Bagsgroove...

I provide a little information in my profile but you'd be surprised how many people will use that same information against you in a discussion. If you stay around, you'll see.

I don't often look at profiles as I don't think they mean too much in the grand scheme of things.

3. Since this is the internets, I'm sure a lot of people feel more comfortable remaining anonymous

But that's not necessarily the case with posts, especially if someone feels strongly about an issue. I'm a liberal from Northeastern New York. Welcome to DU, Bagsgroove! It's great to have you with us!

5. I'm fairly new, but the longtime DUers would gladly tell you about themselves!

 

But then they'd have to.....well, you know!

6. Welcome!!!!!

Of course I had to read your profile.

Though I am originally from Michigan (and living in Michigan now) .... I Lived in Alexandria for almost a year (while decided where to build a house) .... we lived in the Fredericksburg/ Spotsylvania Co. area ... for several years. I decided that I am NEVER living in the "Bible Belt" again.

I will say it was a physically beautiful area .... and of course (on an individual level) there were some wonderful folk.

I left Michigan saying "you guys" and returned saying "Y'all"

8. Still trying to post

I have the same question. I stumbled upon this site by accident from somewhere I was surfing. I am new to the forum game and am not sure exactly how it works. I guess if I get yelled at or thrown out of somewhere then I did I wrong. If I get responses to my posts when I get my 10 in, then I guess I did it right.

I hope I am in the right place. I have been a Democrat since I was born I guess. I grew up in a Democratic home and it is on my voters card. I got my card in 1977 and it says Democrat on it.

Thanks Bagsgroove

Mine is obviously Connecticut Yankee.

Title of a famous jazz tune by Milt Jackson, better known as an album title by Miles Davis. Politics and jazz are my two passions.
