Abuse of the location field

Unfortunately, some people here don't understand the purpose of the location field. These people just put there some joke, instead of really telling us where they're from.
A few examples:

"Sieul, Korea -.- WCG --v;" - {}ghost{}
"Walking the fine line between genius and utter madness." - Anakin
"On the Hymalaya, yes they have cable tv there, no you can't come and visit me" - Atresica
"Somewhere on Earth, and thats all I'm gonna tell ya!" - Fireball

In case you don't understand, this field is for you to tell us where you're from, and not to put some rubbish there. If you really want to put a joke there, then follow wacko's idea- "The Netherlands Base: belong to us".

If you don't want to tell us where you're from, then just leave it empty.

I know, you might say that you can ask people where they are from, but that's exactly the idea of the location field- it's there so that you don't have to ask people this question.

This field wouldn't be there if no one would care.

Of course it would. It is there just to give "people" the illusion that they have something to care about. In their sad minds they even believe it. But the truth is that no one really cares, not even you, you just think so.

Yes! Let's forbid all jokes! And while we're at it, who the hell didn't use their real name as forum name?! How the hell am I else suppose to track you down and rape you?!

Also, I think the signiture should have a real signiture so I can fake all your money transfers!

Yes, that's the way Atre! Let's yell at morshem!

Unlike the nickname and the sig, the location field should be your real location. Otherwise, why is there? (and in the info box!)

What? I mean, "User Name"
You are the user, so give it your name

And Signiture... I mean, c'mon, it literatly says what has to be put there doesn't it?

And Title,.. oh wait, I'll have to put my REAL title there not?

I'm amazed you haven't remarked yet that there are very many people who haven't answered truefully at "Occupation"!

It's just a forum, you're free to set it to whatever you like.

I agree with Gustav on this one.

Yuo really don't feel happy unless you've got something to complain about, do you morshem?
My god, if you really want to know their locations, ASK THEM, in stead of being so uptight about the rules. You seem like a damn nazi with all that'"you have to follow the rules exactly" stuff.
(And no, I didn't say that because you're Jewish, so don't even try to accuse me of antisemitism)

I don't assume you are a mechanical owl, just because your avatar is one? I don't see why you make such a problem out of this.


Ok, I may sound more upset than I am now, but can't you just let things be Morshem, do you always hve to control everything?

You may shoot me if you want, but I, like morshem, find it annoying as well.
It's not funny imo.

In second thought, don't shoot me..

Yes, but the two of you are also pretty boring, that must be why.

I refuse to answer all of you. I'm actually sick of your attitude towards a simple request to use a simple field properly. It's not like I've done anything wrong here.

Yeah, plus I'm starting to see why morshem hates Gustav (or did hate him). He acts like an asshole.

I think the problem is how the question is asked and how the person responds to disagreements of others.

at least, in my case it is.

Also, if people are keen on telling each other how much they dislike them, oh please, grow up.

Way too much tension recently.
