I've been thinking about putting a photo in my public profile but - don't know why - I'm afraid that people might recognise me on the street and say something like "you're dealbreaker...omg omg omg I hate you...I can't believe you said that about me on TSR, etc."

Plus I don't think I'd appreciate the press digging through my posts and threads when I become famous one day.

Do you put a photo in your profile? Are you not afraid that someone might recognise you or stalk you or whatever? Have you been stopped on the street because someone has recognised you from TSR?

For those folks who don't put a photo in their profile...what are you afraid of?

Not really bothered, I highly doubt someone will recognise me for using TSR because they'd have to have looked at my profile picture ages. (no-one does that..I hope!)

I don't think I say anything horrid about people so I'm not fussed!

I was going to say because I couldn't be arsed, but this is actually the reason.

Don't worry, i'd recognize you from a mile away.

They should have some pervy binocular smiley, that would have suited here lol...

I put my pic on because...I dunno why really...because I can lol

I don't care if anybody recognises me (it's happened once, at uni) - why should I mind?

I put mine up cos I know I like to be able to put a face to a name, so I presume others like that too. I know a few people on here that I've met on here and now go to the same uni as them. In Freshers week someone from TSR recognised me, don't know who it was but I was drunk and someone said to me "The student room!" or something, and confused the hell out of haha.
