    Derrick, I do not see the Plugins in my dashboard.

    I have always fely uneasy about placing a photo of myself on line in case someone takes offense at something I say. This may be a completely innocent comment but taken wrongly by someone else. This did happen to me once and I ended up being threatened withall sorts of stuff because the person in question was looking for an excuse to have a go at someone. The fact he had an image of me just made it more difficult to deal with.
    However, I can certainly see the logic of a picture for communication purposes – for making that experience more human.
