All of the answers seem to fall into 2 categories.

1. It is easier to respond to a person when the needed resources are relative
to or available in the posters geographic area.

2. There is a very strong concern about privacy, spam, and identity theft.

Each view has its strong points. And I agree with both
views. So my original question has been answered.
However whether a persons gives a location or not, it
is wonderful that most people on this list will still
respond because they want to help.

Moderator, unless there are strong reasons otherwise,
it seems time to end this thread.
