Seems Avatars are great, but I see on every Forum that no one puts a real photo of themselves..
I wonder why?

Would be great to see Avatars of member's shooting Air guns etc.

Cheers :drinkers:

"..In the early 1900s, there was a unique time in the history that brought displacement to over 500,000 people in the United States. Many became Hobos and became a migrant society seeking and hoping for work as they crisscrossed the country, mostly, following the railways. The most common routes followed the railway lines and it was often a dangerous and meagre lifestyle. Hobos communicated to one another by carving or drawing symbols on trees, fence posts, bridges, and even buildings to offer directional guidance to other travellers with warnings of what may or may not lie ahead. What follows are sixty of the most common along with the translations and interpretations. .."

You can call it Privacy or Paranoïa but once a picture is on the web it’s not yours anymore.
I’m not on any social media platforms. And use different user names and avatars on the few forums I’m in.

I foresee a time when face recognition and cross reference softwares will be widely available to any hackers who will reconstruct your entire life and steal your identity just by following your numeric trail on the web.

It might not be much but I won’t give them a head start by voluntarily posting my face around the internet. I’m not judging you if you do. I’m just trying to be low profile.
