With all due respect. given all the kooky people who live here, why in the world would someone want to give their name and address?

I don't know if I buy into this for simple reason of protection. Too many people are willing to disclose their every move and with real names and Villages leaves one exposed to the bad guys. Posting your real picture as the avatar has a high likelihood of misbelief (like the dating apps) or ruining my dinner. But I do appreciate your concept of snarky due to anonymity. Just to expand your snarky thought - why do we need to tolerate here political, religious, snarky comments because they are "below the line" at the bottom of a post. Why doesn't that count as against the rules ?

I do believe people would be less snarky if they had to use their real name.
My name - Mark Morse.

Yes, keyboard bullies would be much more civil if they weren’t anonymous but that isn’t going to happen. On a much more pleasant note, welcome back Christine! Lunch some day!

The Crispers' lunches did seem to create some respect among posters. There would be meet and greets every third Friday afternoon at 3 PM each month. And sometimes the TOTV owner then would buy lunch for everyone.

I met a few score of regulars back then when I went on-and-off from about 2008 through 2011 or so. Kind of up to when my neighbor from a few doors down-- Donna-- passed. She was a regular on here.

I have also met a number of regular posters at some of the Villages dog parks. Both "official" dog parks and those not so. Some of these people I still meet at these once in a while.

One of my favorites was a retired labor lawyer from NYC who came to Doggie Doo Run Run once a week or so. And sometimes more. Believe he passed as well.

Nothing wrong with people knowing your name and address, all that information is out there, and easy to find.
But. Posting personal information, where you are, what you are doing, when you are going on your next cruise etc. on social media, is gold dust to the scammer and thief.
Golden rule of posting. Never write what you would not say to a persons face.

It’s a shame folks have to be rude I agree. We are all so fortunate to be living & utilising this great place-The Villages. Folks need to appreciate it more & the people in it. I for one hardly ever stop smiling when I’m there!!

Sounds like it may work... As long as people don’t poke fun at people. We all have done things that we aren’t proud of...
