Why does that matter? Individuals who reside in countries with repressive governments are known by those governments. Do you really believe that these regimes are lurking on this board, waiting for one of their "subjects" to post here? Sorry, but those regimes know who is posting what, when and where, the second the "POST REPLY" button is pressed. You seem to think that the internet is anonymous. Even this board knows the location I am posting from, the location GopherT posts from, the location shortbus posts from and the location crutschow posts from. You actually think that a repressive regime doesn't have this same capability? Sorry, but they do. If an individual thinks that they are "hiding" from their government by not putting their location down, they are sadly mistaken. I actually believe that this individual would be in more trouble by not putting in their location, because their regimes may interpet not putting in their location as "trying to hide".We get a lot of posts from repressive governments. Do not judge the world from the USA or the UK. Need to know rules do apply here.
