    Anyone can say: "this is my real photo." But who can authenticate the claim?

    Sometime I use my real photo,sometime I use a photo that expresses my current condition and sometime I use real meaningless image.
    This is my real photo I am using now.

    If they're anything like me, they won't really give a shit. I'm not here to impress or impersonate.

    I always avoid real pic because it always give that kind of funny feeling with your face appearing in every posts. Anyway, I only insert in for my profile photo.

    I think that’s a matter of personal choice. I use my own personal pic on DP but I don’t use it on several other forums and I actually don’t see any difference as far as trading goes. :=)

    I don’t think people will go buying your services just because they can "see" the real you...You are still just some anonymous person behind a computer after all, real photo or not.
