Dani and I had a discussion about this. Some forums display member locations in the thread posts. DaniWeb only discloses location when viewing a member profile.
Dani's take: People may form biases based on user location, but we should poll the members and let them decide.
My take: It may bring members closer together by chance to interact in the real world (offline!). Additionally, it would be nice to know where our friends are coming from.
We would like to know your opinions.
