    Dec 6 2012: I use the bio as a indicator to better form an answer. Lately more and more people are just giving a name and no location. Since joining is a voluntary thing I think that a minimum of information would be desirable.

    I enjoy discussions on education and a comment on how to make education in "my country" better has no meaning if I cannot find out what country you are talking about. In many discussions a more direct answer could be given knowning the area of the world you reference.

    Some below state there are many members with more than one idenity. Can that be identified and if so can it be stopped?

    Since I am in the 5% majority I DO NOT think that bringing the thumbs down back is a good idea. The 95% minority athiests and super liberals would wear this out on us good guys. Yeah I sorta like the discussiions with them and have high hopes of educating them to the real world. So far no conversions. LOL.

    Thanks. Bob.

      Dec 6 2012: I agree Robert that any information about other users is very helpful in formulating your answers or questions. Knowing someone isn't a native english speaker or knowing they have grown up in a very different situation to your own is helpful in interpreting the finer meanings that are lost without facial expressions and intonations.
