    You are certainly entitled to your thoughts on the subject, NdAppy. :) Years ago, I frequented several "large public forums" and I have vivid, though certainly not fond, memories of the drama and bad feelings that often resulted from anonymous posts. That's probably the biggest reason I don't miss the forums - any people back then who took great pains to remain anonymous were usually bad news. Maybe those problems don't exist on public forums these days. I sincerely hope that is the case. :) I guess I just prefer accountability, and the ability to hide one's true identity while posting publicly doesn't provide for that. Of course, I'm probably more than a bit "brainwashed" because I haven't frequented a public forum in a long time and have become accustomed to working with people in the horse world who are breeding and selling horses, and it is my business to be SURE people DO know who they are and where they can be found and to make sure all the cards are on the table, so to speak. :) If anonymity works for you folks here, that's great. I was just surprised, when I was beginning my initial response on this thread, that I couldn't find a "real person" to address my remarks to. No biggie. :)

    Best regards,
    Nancy

    Oh, I can certainty see where you're coming from. Usually when I need a photo as an example, I try to use one of my own. I usually try not to find paid photographs, but I guess I got all caught up in the moment and didn't pay attention. Especially if someone uses it in a negative way.
    I figure I'm pretty accessible, though. I keep the same username wherever I go, have my website up, and all my contact information is on there.
    I may find myself ruffling someone's feather's now and then, but it wouldn't be hard for them to find me. LOL
    You do a fantastic job, by the way. I'd love to send my porkers to you, to see what you could do with them.

    Thanks, Steff. I appreciate being able to address you by name. I had looked on your web site and didn't find your name there, but I did look up M S Aurelius on datasource and saw he was registered to you. :) Lucky you to have an *Ecaho son. Thanks, too, for your kind words about my photos. You have some very nicely bred horses. :)

    Also have to point out that on these forums are quite a few minors... for their safety as well it is better that they keep things anonymous and not post personal information... The way things are it is better to keep personal information off searchable forums. Too many freaks out there that could use that information for lord only knows what.

    As for addressing people... You address them by their forum name unless they have posted otherwise if you don't know their name.

    As for us all knowing each other? Hardly. I know very few people on this forum personally.

    Is it maybe possible he's a very light flaxen chestnut?

    That's what he is, but you just don't see it very often, in purebred Arabians.
    He's a unique guy for sure!

    You know, I didn't even think of my website! It's being all tore down and redone anyhow, so that's something I'll add on there! I started it and then got distracted.
    And thanks! Reed (MS Aurelius) is a pretty cool guy. I happened to stumble upon him at just the right time and was able to snatch him up before he ever hit the market - looking foward to getting shown under saddle! :)

    Lovely boy in the OP! Gorgeous color. Man, I remember the drama that came up around Fire An Ice! Whew! Glad they are down to earth about marketing the young colt.

    Grayshell38,
    I just hope people will appreciate the colt for what he is - a pretty, athletic colt with an unusual shade of chestnut. :)

    Steff,
    I look forward to seeing your new web site - and to seeing Reed showing under saddle. I love finding cool horses like him that no one else has discovered yet - you must have a good eye. :)

    NdAppy,
    I completely agree that minors should not post their contact information in public anywhere. And since you mentioned it, minors' safety on the internet seems to me an even better reason for adult forum posters to provide their real names in their profiles. The greatest danger to minors on the internet comes from adults who are concealing their true identities. Guess that's another reason I'm immediately distrustful of any adult on the internet who takes great pains to conceal his/her real identity - particularly on an internet forum that is host to quite a few minors. I don't have a problem with keeping more detailed personal information off the web, but I do think an adult should use his/her real name. You are free to disagree with me, of course, and I am happy to agree to disagree. :)

    I understand the idea of creating a cute forum name that makes some kind of statement about a person's peronality or interests, and I understand people not signing their names to every post - I just thought I would find the real name in a person's profiles, that's all.

    Please note that I DID address people here by their forum names when I didn't know their real ones. :)

    Best regards,
    Nancy
