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

    Your real name?

    First name only.

    Your age?

    Yes

    Your birthday?

    No.

    Your city of residence?

    I'll give the state and region within the state.

    Pictures of you?

    Yes but I usually only put them up for a limited time and nothing too embarrasing.

    Your email address?

    Only if I know you well.

    Your IM username?

    Again, only if I know you well and want to establish a deeper friendship.

    Which of the following are you willing to share about yourself on online forums such as this one?
    Your real name?
    Yup, but only to those who ask directly.
    Your age?
    Yup.
    Your birthday?
    Yup.
    Your city of residence?
    Yup.
    Pictures of you?
    For the mostpart, yup.
    Your email address?
    Yup.
    Your IM username?
    Yup.

    I'm pretty open about myself and pretty easy to track down on the interwebs with the slightest amount of information. I just give people the information they could find almost as easily with a few clicks through Google.
    I like how you posted this right after I posted on the desktop thread, basically revealing the town I'm in and the movie theater I venture to in said town. If my aim/skype/ie wasn't tabbed by default, would have my username strewn across it too. Course, they aren't difficult usernames to guess .

    Of course the answers to these questions apply only to what I share with forum people in general, principally in threads. People that I like/trust obviously can get more information out of me.

    Yes to all save for e-mail. I no longer have an IM name, but if I did, I wouldn't share it.

    My answers are the same as the OP. I don't give out a lot of personal info on a forum, but will give more to those I've established a relationship with. I don't like having pics up permanently, for some reason. I tend to keep my circles separate, and don't want ways for people from real life or other forums to track me down. I'm kind of weird about the interconnectedness of the internet.

    Your real name? Publicly, first name only.

    Your age? Your birthday? I might share, when I'm in the right mood.

    Your city of residence? Not particularly.

    Pictures of you? No.

    Your email address? My "fake" one, yeah.

    Your IM username? Only to a select few. But deleting/blocking is only a matter of a few clicks anyway.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    The only reason I restrict information is because I don't want people from real life connecting the dots. I'm more private now as the forum has grown, for that reason.

    Your real name?
    In pm only, first name to most, last name to some
    Your age?
    Yes
    Your birthday?
    In pm only
    Your city of residence?
    Yes, though only if it's relevant
    Pictures of you?
    I have before, but don't really want to anymore.
    Your email address?
    In pm only. (or my "junk mail" email is fine)
    Your IM username?
    n/a

    Yeah I'm kinda the same. I defintely relate to the wanting to keep circles separate part. I'd be mortified if my family members or boss found out that I was participating on here. So I have to have some controls in place so I'm not too searchable.

    So I keep some things rather vague and generic. Another example: I'll gladly tell you my occupation but not the organization I work for.
