The problem with the map is you have to pinpoint where you live, for example I can go to your profile zoom in all the way put it on satellite view and see your house. Granted it doesn’t give me an address, but it gives me a street. Personally I find this a tad bit creepy and do not like the idea.
The idea has been brought up for members to place their pin in a lake or highway, so that the general area is known but not the street and house. Some people are more willing to share where they are on the internet than others.
Always remember no one has to have an account to read the forums and even if they did think about all that requires. The chances of anything happening are pretty slim, but there is a chance no matter how small.
Edit: I do like Rosiario’s idea about making threads for throwers in certain areas. The only problem is since some areas have few to none throwers, the reason why it is this way now, how would this be done? By state maybe and then give the more popular cities threads of there own. I don’t know.
