It really doesn't have anything to do with anyone stealing your information.
What is attractive to people about posting on a forum like this is that we are all equals. Suddenly when you start assigning age and income to people's user names then you establish a hierarchy. It helps keeps everyone's opinions equal when we maintain a certain level of anonymity.
Whether I am 10 or 90 year old, whether I'm on welfare or a self-made millionaire, my opinions are still my own and should be treated as such.
The information on age and income is great to know. But it's just a good idea in a forum to keep that separated from people's user names.
