Why Are We Hiding Our Identities?

na wa o.why are we always hiding face and identity in NL?

make we open up to each other naa

we can add our pics, complete our profile, or simply leave our emails for PMs

we cant keep hiding forever u know, lets get to know each other

i am an atheist and i no dey hide, so all other atheist, agnostics, deist, and religionist, lets all come together and show ourselves.

i didnt say u should expose all personal details of u but at least an email is very much ok.

Thank you

I disagree.  From experience on another site, PMing allowed us to take our friendships from cyberspace into the real world but it didn't detract from the message boards.

Not everyone a person PMs will become a personal friend - if anything, it may lead to more Yahoo Yahoo messages.  If there's a way to guarantee this won't happen that would be great, but I don't think it will mean people interact on the boards less.

I agree to an extent, some simply don't need the whole world and a brother to know who they are outside of NL.

I think we hide identities to protect ourselves from identity theft.

PMing would reduce people's interaction on boards, I think.

We need to hide because if people find out that we are pastors from Christ Embassy they will stop taking up seriously.

@ post

The same reason why you are hiding yours.

Show us your own picture. I mean real picture not some blurry thing.

None. But it would be nice to be able to interact via email or in person even if some of us choose not to show our pics.

I agree with Muhsin - it would be nice if we were allowed to PM one another.

Some months ago I requested this on NL board, but surprise none among the site's admin cared to respond. Why? Almost every other discussion fora like this provide means via which members can communicate privately, i.e. PM.

Please take note of this now. Thanks

@ skydancer

so if am interested in 50 ppl here on NL, i would have to create 50 posts for each or i shud start following their threads one by one to beg for their emails? na wa o.

its just a suggestion and i dont mean that it must be compulsory. the PM will be really great, just think about it.

@manmustwack, u never accept me add request, , still waiting

@Ascony. Some people are quite very reserved by nature. Nland is a forum and besides like KMTee pointed out, it's that easy. Why hide your feelings about someone. Simply ask the person to give you his/her ad.

I second the NL "PM (personal messaging)" - it's much easier and saves posters the hassles of trying to empty their e-boxes of junk and spam mails on a daily basis.

I think that idea is great. . but problem is that Yahoo boys will load your e-box with spam and all sorts of junk. It happens, trust me. Prolly that's why most people using online forums and blogs these days keep even email addy hidden - until someone requests them.

nothing per say

i just think that it will be better if guys here on NL could relate personally via email at least

when i see a nice post here, i sometimes try to get in touch personally via email with the person only to get to their profile and find no contact at all

i have noticed that most guys here hide thier identities and i wish that would change
