I'll be there!!

Some of you are dying to meet me in person. I'm pretty easy to spot at a conference center.

I'll be there hanging out in the Loyalhanna booth.

Haven't missed a Toledo show in 18 years, except for one time in 2011---.

Well this will be the second year that I will not be attending the Toledo Expo due to our continuing rebuild from hurricane SANDY. I see that a lot of my buddies will be there with cameras so I would like to ask, if you are there with camera in hand, and taking pictures of the boat entries and the show, please label the photos when posting and don’t forget to take a picture of the owner of the models and ask for his name, (both actual and handle here on the forum).

Inquiring minds would like to put a face to the name they have seen here on the forum.

To some people (including me), that's a pretty creepy request! I don't think you mean any harm Rich, but do want to read over your request one more time and take a few minutes to think about what you just asked for. You may want to take a step back for a minute and ask yourself why that statement could be misconstrued by other members to question your character. I certainly wouldn't appreciate my pictured and name aligned with my "handle" online. That's pretty much what thieves wanting to steal your identity are looking for. Once you have a full name and a "handle" you can figure out the I.P address and go to work.

Despite all that, it looks like you're being a little too nosy.

Just sayin.....

When they steal your identity, they don't steal your face, so posting a photo of yourself with your name and userid is not a problem. They also can't steal your account that way.

I have posted lots of photos of myself, my family, and my toys online. Nobody has, nor will they, be able to access my bank account as a result.

And guess what - if we're at a show taking photos and the GPS indoors is able to get a fix (not especially likely, but possible) then the GPS tag in the photo will be ---- THE SHOW FLOOR! Whoop dee doo!

Paranoia and ignorance can be a deadly combination - for your sanity.
