from?
just suggestion ,it might be a good idea if we put where we are from .
example UK,USA etc in your profile on the left of your post.
this may help others inc me to understand that  bits and bobs may not be in your country.
if I wanted to work with mentally retarded I would open a Hardly Davidson shop.

Might be safest to ASSUME you're dealing with the home team, you should be able to pick up on UK and/or Antipodean nuances pretty quickly, assuming there's no mention or suggestion of locality/nationality in the poster's profile. Some posts will make it obvious, e.g a tour of the Ozarks/Lake District/Bush, etc... Also color versus colour, pictures showing different suburban architecture, yellow rear number plates versus white license plates, you get the idea.

Good idea. I think this would help avoid some of the misunderstandings that often seem to happen here.

This IS a good idea. The internet boogey man won't get you just by putting what country you are in, in your avatar. Not just in your profile though, as anyone wanting to see it has to go looking there.

johnakay - where's your information, since you brought it up?

P.S. Your signature line would be more appropriately worded "Hardly Driveable". Just a suggestion.  :)

Just me, perhaps, I like to see if a hunch is correct.
