    Your real name? Learning the real name may be nice. I'm not sure if I would share mine.

    Your age? I am fine with saying it one day. I have only twice here mentioned but a false age and I quite regret it. Happy I rid myself of one of them.

    Your birthday? I do not mind telling anyone who asks.

    Your city of residence? Hmm I might say it sometimes. The past year I've been moving around back and forth from the UK, middle east and to a lesser extent east asia so I've not been content on my staying at one particular place.

    Pictures of you? I'm fine showing my picture through certain means.

    Your email address? I do not mind telling anyone who asks. I generally use 2 emails.

    Your IM username? I barely, if ever, go on IM. I cannot remember mine.

    Usually, nothing aside age & country. Maybe one or two pictures, but only for a short amount of time, and I dislike showing the face because it could be tracked down. I have a separate email account only for forums etc.

    Yeah, I know, I'm paranoid. But I just like being anonymous, partly also because I'm normally too shy to talk about personal issues.

    Your real name?

    First name only.
    Yes. I'm Alex, good to meet you

    Your age?
    Yes. I'm 22 \o/

    Your birthday?

    Your city of residence?
    Yes. Rochester, NY

    Pictures of you?
    Sure. I've posted a few in the past.

    Your email address?
    Hells no.

    Your IM username?
    See above.

    Basically, I don't want this online identify and my significant real-life activities/information to interact.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......

    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Which of the following are you willing to share about yourself on online forums such as this one?

    Your real name? nope
    Your age? sure
    Your birthday? maybe. i wouldn't put my full bday in a profile but i might mention it
    Your city of residence? no. i've mentioned my region though
    Pictures of you? nope
    Your email address? i have a few different emails. i'd share one that doesn't include my real name
    Your IM username? haha, i haven't used IM in forever. i facebook chat.

    i'm kinda paranoid in general when it comes to the internet. doesn't have anything to do with not trusting any of you guys personally, but i had a friend who was stalked and i just don't feel like there's a huge gain in putting my info out there. almost everything can be discussed without it.
