I agree with what others have said here, especially Shores. However, I will add that I don't actually keep track of anyone's personal things on this board. So if PosterXYZ is pregnant and mentions it in every single thread she posts in, it just doesn't register on my radar. But then, I don't read a whole lot of threads, just in certain sections.
The one thing that DOES bother me, which is kind of the opposite of what's being posted here, is when someone assigns an obscure name to someone in their family, and posts constantly about "Bob" and assumes that readers of their post will know who Bob is. I actually don't, and it bugs me to see Bob come up over and over again with no explanation of who Bob is. Just my personal pet peeve LOL ... so I actually like a bit of clarification, at least in that aspect.
