i agree... please stop turning gaia into facebook
God, no. That would just be over the top, there, guys.
And I know it's just paranoia, but even if there was a privacy setting, I wouldn't put my real name.
Ever. User Image
NO. This isn't myspace. If I wanted people to find me, I would give them my email. If your going to do it anyway at least make an option so I can check if I want people to find me. User Image Gaia is like my home away from home.

EDIT: But thanks Gaia for letting us choose if we want it or not. Obviously by the poll, its a bad idea. We wouldn't want you to waste bandwidth on something no one wants. xp

Oh God no.

If I want someone to know who I am on Gaia, I tell them. If I want to know if someone I know is on Gaia, I ask them. I wouldn't search for them, and I wouldn't enter my name so that they could search for me.
Sorry I like to keep my identity a secret.
And lets face the truth of it...There are people I know who would friend me That I just don't wanna be friends with. (Let me Clarify...They think I'm cool...I don't really wanna be enemies...But I don't wanna talk to them all the time)
I'm a Jerk like that.
That kind of stuff is for myspace...this r not teh Myspaces!
