Two more fields could be added: ResearchGate and ORCID ids. These could be added under the Identities section.

It would tell me the difference between those, who a) understand why we do not discuss philosophy and b) understand that this is not philosophy what we are offered here, and those who do not. Besides it would be interesting to know how many scientists actually name Plato, considering the fact that they usually prefer Plato's heaven of ideals as sufficient criterion of existence.

I mean I won't discuss favorite books or published papers either, so what is the difference? Naming it does not equal debating it.

I liked the joke better, now you guys ruined it just like Adam on YouTube in Adam Ruins Everything.

Your comment reminds me of a African American humorist who decried the suppression of the Confederate flag saying it told him which places he would not be welcomed at which is in itself a true and sad commentary of our time in the US where we can suppress the outward expression of hatred but can’t eliminate it from the hearts of humanity.

Me, too, liked my ignorance better.
