Why are you asking for my location?

It is entirely optional to give a location. If you give one, you will be able to use certain features that are location-based. These features include: seeing which other members live near you (you can specify a distance for "near"); getting a message if there is an IRL meetup scheduled near you; seeing how far away from you each job posting is in Jobs. Other members will also be able to see your location and see if you are "near" them.
