    And why do you need the location??????? You are free to include that including your home address if you want.

    State is close enough for me. If someone is selling something in a FTF only and they are instate I have the option to contact them. Don't need nor want anything more than that.

    One of the most endearing sights in the world is the vision of a naked good-looking woman leaving the bedroom to make breakfast. Bolivar Shagnasty (I believe that Lazarus Long also said it, but I can't find any record of it.)

    I use humor, thus what I put as my location, subtle clue, not horribly far from Seattle (In fact far too close IMO)

    But to start forcing others to put in their exact city names, ehh, nope, that seems more like what the bad guys would do.

    "Your papers, citizen!" - You want to see that on here? To me that's a NOPE...

    Years ago I lived in the boonies; had a next door neighbor, ex-military, with a younger, very pretty wife.

    One day I was on my way to town, saw a car parked at the entry to our area, nose towards our houses. (On the wrong side of the road, sorta suspect.) As I drove out I saw two guys in the car, one of them panicking, I suspect he was yelling "He made us, lets get out of here!" at the driver.

    You could say I looked them over with a hairy eyeball, and you'd pretty much be right. Where we were the county Sheriff had about a 30-40 minute response time, so it was "Handle it yourself", not "the police are minutes away", even more so than in cities.

    Got into town where my cell worked, called the neighbor who started using binocs BACK on the two in the car, they left. If they hadn't I would have come back to help.

    Had I not seen them, neighbors could have had a home invasion, that wife could have been raped or killed, etc., the bad guys out there are usually looking for their next big score, why make it easier for them? They ought to at least have to work a bit for it.

    Well the locals call it Pleasant Valley, but you have to really like wind to call it pleasant. Nearest is Renova, but that was mined out 120+ years ago and won't show up on most maps. Zip says Whitehall but that zip code is 40 miles long and 40 miles wide so it doesn't really put me in town. Whitehall is only listed at 1200 inhabitants so you would have to search to find that as well. SW MT is plenty close enough for me.

    I think it’s really funny in the selling section when someone says “Face to Face only” , you know for some Primers or powder. But then you look at their screen name, posts,.... but no location !
    No harm but then you have to ask and put them on the spot to divulge a State or city.

    Many years back I made the “mistake of asking” why most don’t use their first name at the end of a post or comments etc..., and always go by screen name ? ( kinda like location).
    WOW, .... I’ll never do that again. You think I asked for their SS numbers.

    We are free Americans ! We have the right to pick and choose. Amen !!

    Better be careful OP . . . . . The Socialists (i.e. Bumbling Biden) are looking for new free homes for all theses illegals that are invading this country . . . . if you're too specific, you just might end up with 15 or 20 of 'em on your doorstep wanting a free place to stay. . . . kind of like a basket of unwanted kittens . . . . after all, if you come here illegally, everything is free . . . . . well . . . . not for us taxpayers and citizens . . . . .

    I respect every ones privacy and what they wish to reveal about their location, it's up to the individual and I'm fine with that. If I have a need to know where they are, I'll simply send a PM and ask them, pretty simple.

    Regarding people who are concerned about 'Big Brother' knowing their location? If you carry a cellphone, or have an internet provider, good luck if you think they don't know where you are. Am I paranoid about it? Nope. Just the facts of life to me anymore.

    I never get to see anybody's location because I use the Tapatalk app.

    In Tapatalk, Tap the name of the poster shows the profile and shows the location.

    If I named the town, you would say “ where in tarnations is that ?” At least Central NYS gives you a general location.

    As time goes on, a lot of members get to know each others info through buying, selling, traveling, chat, helping hands, events, etc...

    I have nothing to hide, several members have my name, address, phone number, & email address through previous dealings, which have all been positive. That's a testament to the way this forum is run and its membership. Thanks mods for all you do.

    Most members here strive for info as this is what this site is all about, and there are many well known members who give that info freely without looking for feathers to add to their caps. It's up to you to do your research and ultimately making your own decisions.

    I, along with many others, overlook things that seem trivial, others make a fuss about it. I've only used the ignore option once since I joined. If somebodies location is important to you, send him a PM. YMMV

    Why?
    Exact location (town/state) should only be required in S&S posts that are FTF deals.
    That way people know how close they are to you.

    It would be nice for people to at least list their state but CB doesn't require you to put any location information in your profile.
    Don't like being hammered by the Cast Boolits Staff, then don't be a nail.
    The rules are simple to follow.
