    Either way, you're gonna find some people who find that question offensive -- essentially, it's a lazy way to find statistical information about someone else, but it's not really a good way to launch into a conversation. It also makes the chat atmosphere seem more 'cruisy' since the first thing you're asking is (essentially) "are you big? are you my age? do you live close by?"

    Even if that's not your intention, there are people who'll interpret it that way. Then again, there are plenty of people who still see ASL and think 'American Sign Language'.

    Most people who would be inclined to post their stats have already done so on the LPSG Stats thread. Why do you want to read the same info we've already given?

    I saw that and immediately thought American Sign Language.

    Oh well.

    da_blissmachine: well, if someone ims you from somthing called Large Penis Support Group don't you think they assume you are going to ask for their size anyway?

    Also, Yes I know they are on their profiles, but sometimes when i get a random im from someone saying they know me from lpsg i dont exactly know their lpsg screename as many people do not match screennames.
