Do you prefer a filled in profile or ones that remain anonyomous?...I think it is so neat to go to one and see them,it sort of gives that person a face and nice to see people from all over the globe participating...Oh the world of technology...magnolia1

Oh definately a proper filed profile. It's so much better to put faces etc to names!

I agree and it seems like a lot of the quiz bombers fail to fill out their profiles - hmmmm, coincidence? I don't think so!

I like to see profiles. There a quite few humorous ones out there. It's nice to put a first name with a user name and to find out what general area someone is from.

I like the profiles that are filled out..they are alot of fun to read and it helps to know something about the people who are writing the can check to see where people are from and also if you have things in common with them...I've made alot of friends this way.

I love a properly filled out profile. Mainly because when I'm done with my daily trivia and I'm tired of taking quizzes, it gives me another excuse not to get off the site. hehe cause my browser practically never leaves this page.....only when my boss walks into my office and I want to look like I'm being productive *wink*

Being the totally negative individual I am, I would make iit a mandatory feature to at least have a partial profile. Most likely some folks don't want to reveal their name-fail to see the reason here at least the first (given)-but guess it is their right. No profile entries creates "suspicion" and in these times believe folks everywhere-especially Chicago-would attest that is not a good thing-Linda

Your avatar shows your sense of humor, Bobbsey! How cute.

I agree. I have been checking the profiles of a lot of new players in recent weeks and none of them have filled out anything.

What harm does it do to put my name is Pat and I live in Nebraska and I had a career in newspapers and I love dogs? It really doesn't tell much about me, and yet it tells enough that you can decide whether or not you want to PM a message to me.

I really dislike all these anonymous profiles any more. No personalities!

You don't have to give your address and phone number, just an idea how the rest of us can be friendly. I do understand that people would be leary if they ever took part in AOL chatrooms and such. There are a few players that do well on puzzles or other competion on this site. It would be nice to ask for or give a tip to each other on our activities. When a profile says Unknown, go to hell.

BTW Linda, seeing that Blagojevich is out in the open, I am going to reveal that I was a Bagman for the Southwestside's gambling mob in the 60's. I collected Horse racing sheets and bets as well as Football and Basketball bets too. I worked for Jimmy Venturelli and I met Joey "the clown" Lombardo. Pauly Bagodonuts got me a job driving a truck for a mob company until I was put on as a regular in 1970. In 1972, I got an offer to work for a regular house and I gave him 30 of the best years of my life.

Seeing that Chicago is the armpit of the nation, I just want to say that I would never have wanted to be anywhere else in my life. I've been to nine countries and I lived in Florida for three years. I've always found it interesting how even little women would say "rat-tat-tat when they heard Chicago. Like our lovely friend Chickie, I love Chicago and those Cubbies.

An editor might want to explain how you can give your first name at least on your profile. After 2.0 appeared for everyone there is no clear means of doing that-Kimoira was kind and explained it to me when I rejoined. Bill, find it absolutely fascinating feature about you that you were a bag man for the mob-rather a sexy aspect really- Linda )

Part of Neil Steinberg's column in today's Chicago Sun-Times:
Name this man : Corruption makes us the target of teasing coast to coast, but who remembers these guys?

Illinois is a national laughingstock, mocked on "Saturday Night Live" for our governor's foul-mouthed hunger for graft, painted in the national news as a corrupt state sunk into "chaos" and "turmoil."

Perhaps I'm reacting defensively. But a person has to wonder; how unique is Illinois, really, when it comes to having a state government that isn't precisely operating the way they teach in 10th-grade civics class?

Think of other big states. California? Didn't voters there abruptly recall a moderate governor they had just elected months before? New York? Didn't their governor resign last March amidst hoots of disgrace? And while consorting with hookers might not carry the breathtaking villainy of peddling a seat in the U.S. Senate, it isn't exactly profiles in courage either. Florida is first for public officials convicted of crimes over the past decade with 824, some 60 percent more than Illinois, in 7th place with 502.

No, we in Illinois can still hold our heads high. Yes, we produce the occasional Richard III lump of moral deformation. But we also raise up politicians from Abraham Lincoln to Paul Simon to Barack Obama, names that will shine long after Milorad Blagojevich is forgotten.

Or put it this way: When was the last time someone said, "You're from Illinois? Wasn't your governor Otto Kerner? Didn't he end up in jail?"

I rest my case.

I'd bet you across the board anyday Liam! I grew up in a headnod, handshake, gotcha back age and I guess many of us from a different generation don't jump into the Chicken Little syndrome so quickly. I listed my profile information because I like to meet new people and I like to let people know who I am as well.

When I saw that Snookerballs/PMB lives right down the road from me, I got skeered!

I believe a number of the blank profiles are people who are cheating.
They bomb the first attampt - especially on the Word Puzzles
And then they ace the quiz/puzzle under their Known name....

The rest are probably people who aren't sure yet if they want to play.

Nashville, or the great entire state of Tennessee for that matter would never, ever allow any form of corruption. I'll go for 12 out of 12 everytime the blue paper floats.
