Shanna,

If I like what they have to say, or want to comment, of course, I do.  Why should we judge by that as a stop?  A

As they are probably new and have a good question or post I will respond in the "Rain" on other media sites a definite no.

Yes, I did once or twice today as a matter of fact!  I don't think the default image lends to a sense of community though.  The fully anonymous ones I answer as well, but typically they get a more terse and generic answer... especially if it is a school question.

It can take some people quite a while to get around to, or learn how to, or choose a photo they want to use. I don't worry too much about it.

You remind those broker, managing broker who do not have even a name or photo neither do they have a license # displayed to  complete their profile.

The ones from Utah asking the most elementary questions are the ones I dread the most.

Those interactions are most likely driven by the points system. I would be happy to see a limitation or the elimination of points for answering questions.

If I can answer their question I will. I guess a lot of the faceless people are students. These will someday be agents, and maybe they will become members on AR. That would be great for everyone.

Intersting you should ask that. I guess I pass, same here on AR. I would not "follow" someone who doesn't have something up. Why would you not put a phot up? And the same one everywhere? Good face recognition.

Typically no, WHY cant they put a picture on their profile? My first thought is always spam or scam, sometimes i read about them to see if i can tell but often just ignore.
