Please be sure to fill out you AT Registered User - Public Profile - “About me”
It helps the AT forum viewers to understand your perspective when asking questions and commenting. It helps the process of clear communications. Disclosure helps greatly with credibility. Those that post, please take a moment and fill out the “About Me” information.
I have found that folks are much more open and even friendlier when posting to a person that has a name, is somewhere recognizable and offers some information about themselves.
(For some reason, anonymous posters are treated more aggressively as if being anonymous indicates that a person has something hide and is not being forthright. As if “I will be open with you if you are open with me” or “Since you are hiding, you must be concealing something and afraid to stand up for your opinions”. I suspect that most just dont know to take a moment and fill our their profiles.)
There are those that will never fill out their profiles because they need to hide because of some "extra ordinary" posts in the past. But for the new folks and the vast majority… Please be sure to fill out your AT Registered User - Public Profile - “About me”, profile. It does help.
