I don't think everyone would just spontaneously add the Siblings info in the ad-lib section of their profile. Admin has not chimed in on this yet. I don't understand why.
Even though I'm only the elder of 2 children, I wholeheartedly agree with the decision to remove this part from the profile and allow that disclosure to be the choice of the member rather than fixed data in our profiles.
Where is there a legitimate need to know this information that necessitates its disclosure in our profiles on anything other than a voluntary basis, which is easily satisfied by including it in our "About Me" section?
People are always crying about how difficult it is to fill 2,500 characters in their "About Me" section. Well, admin just gave us a way to do it. Instead of complaining, perhaps we should be thanking them for making our task a little easier.
Realistically, it serves no useful purpose for it to be either necessary or required. Who chooses a potential mate based on their birth order or by how many brothers and/or sisters they have anyway?
