Real Person??

ILHIKER's picture

I was just reading over some of the members' profiles and noticed that I am the only one who has the term Real Person showing under my name. I tried unchecking that in my profile content, but got an error that said it must be checked. Why is that? Unlike Obama, I haven't shown my birth certificate, but I swear it's me! :) I was just wondering if I did something improperly so that I have to check the Real Person box. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all the comments, guys. I figured out that it shows up when I look at my own profile, but not when someone else looks at it. I guess we all see ourselves differently than others see us. Sometimes that's a good thing! LOL

Once you become a real person there is no turning back

I'm a "Real Person", too.

I'm a "Real Person", too. It's nice to have one's existence affirmed occasionally. I can go the rest of the day confident that I am real.

My recollection, too, is that it's an anti-spam catch.

Glad to know you're not imaginary, though! I hope it wasn't a surprise when you found out. :-)

My profile also says "Real Person" - I think this came up once before and I think Darrel said it had something to do with combating spammers or something like that.
