Hi Lara.

Interesting that you live in Boston - on your profile you've put the US Virgin Islands, and your facebook and twitter link to a tour company?

I see that now too. Guess I should have looked first too.

US Virgin Islands, that wasn't done by me, may be it pick automatically. I am going to check it out and will fix this by the way. I am a tourists and use to travel through this agency oftenly. Had good time with them and recently going to join there SEO Team as well so i set that site as my home page. Is that not allowed or something wired i did???

There is no 'automatic' option. You chose it, even if you did not mean to do so.

>Is that not allowed or something wired i did???

The differences in where you say you live, plus the tour company link, did rather make you look like a potential spammer.

Yup maybe, i don't know but maybe i did it unintentionally.

Hi Lara. In that case, welcome. :)

You can put pretty much what you like in your profile, but people reading those Facebook and Twitter links will think you are that company and are here promoting it.

Elsewhere on the site promotional activity is forbidden. We get a lot of spam so we are zero tolerance. If something appears to be intended to promote something rather than to help a traveller, it is deleted.

A lot of spammers write profiles pretending to be from western countries while not really being familiar with the place they claim to live, so oddities like being from Charlotte, USVI stand out. So yes that did make me wonder. As you're a real person I hope you'll enjoy your participation here. :)
