I have lost count of how many times I've clicked on somebody's name to find out what boat they have or where they are from only to be disappointed. Knowing this information about a poster can add lots of context to their comments.
Why not fill out the profile completely? I don't understand people who make reference to their $50k pride and joy but neglect to mention it in their profile with a pic or description. When I brought my boat home, posting a pic on this forum was the first thing I did!!
