Are You a Spy or in Hiding ?

It may just be me but I do like to know where folks are from especially in forums. Why not add your location and home country to your thingy.

Yes I agree, it is nice to see the location and I try to make an allowance by converting currency or measurements to make posts clearer.

I have just read a thread about PNW. Haven't a clue where that is

Is that Papua New Guinea okay after some Googling its an American abbreviation for Pacific North West, but you see the problem. If the originator had Pacific US in his profile I could picture his location.

Yes, especially now that you have claimed to work for all those gov't departments. The RCMP will get you (if you are a man). Otherwise CSIS is on your track.

I move around so much to even know where I'm from so I just tell people "Everywhere" or "Nowhere".
