Quite honestly I thought I would be flagging @Turbo Ed with his "style". We just need to not get personal in a way which is derogatory.Oh certainly! One could only assume logically roughly the age when someone volunteers the information of himself of having over 50 years of experience!
I'm a firm believer of if you want to dish it, you should also be able to take it.
But since you wanted to bring up the topic about personalized remarks, may I also add in nationality as well? Not that I took offense to it at all when it was brought up first, especially the country flag is meant to appear right next to our profile which defeats the whole purpose of it just like how information was volunteered and not assumed out of thin air.
As to flags we have no say in the platform design but by using vpn, as you are, we can suppress that. For me I'm holidaying in Spain so my flag has changed and I'm happy not to activate my vpn.
As mods we'll see how this and the other tuning thread go but if things heat up we may give some time out by locking them for a few days.
