    Do you feel like some people on the forums are almost discriminatory towards other forum members who haven't posted pictures? I feel like some people don't take any interest in people who's pictures they haven't seen. And that's really sad. I think that the forums would be better off if everyone had posted a picture or no one at all. Hell, if people saw my picture, I might even get a fan club! But that's not the point. I don't think there is enough emphasis on the appreciation of the quality of one's posts. I'm not saying that all of my posts have been completely justified, because obviously, on this site, they don't need to be. But am I right or is my alter ego just a whiney bitch tonight? I/she won't be offended if you agree with the latter.

    Yeah, don't worry. But I'm not sure I've noticed what you're talking about. If I haven't seen a picture of someone on the forums, I create a mental picture of them anyway.

    I like putting a face to people I've developed a friendship with on here. But, it's not necessary.

    For what it's worth, I only talk to girls whose breasts I've seen (a) picture(s) of.

    i just put mine up for shits and giggles,

    but i do understand what your saying trip. i must say however that, all the forums i belonged to befor this place...everyone is so secretive about thier identity. i think being secretive is kinda sad. im a brutally honest person.

    If I were to post my pic on here, shit! This place would be like a ghost town, I would definately scare everyone away. My pic is on my aol homepage, not that anyone knows my aol name, (at least I dont think so?)

    also, I dont see that seeing someone else's picture really matters, you might be right tho, I will have to pay more attention.

    I´m not sure thats true, I´ve been here over a year and just put a pic up earlier today for the first time, of course I´m not the most ¨popular¨ poster on here ;)

    I can honestly say that it never affected me either way, I never felt differently about someone after seeing their pics. That´s what I like about the internet, meeting someone from the inside out.

    I´ll let you know if more or less people reply to my posts, it can be a little experiment.

    I sort of liked being anonymous too though.
