It's not a matter of controlling anything, but of informing others in order to avoid the tedious question "where are you located?"
May I recall why this thread was opened at all?

may I suggest making mention of your country of residence in your deskthority profile?
Nearly every time somebody wants to buy or sell something on deskthority prospective sellers and buyers keep asking each other where they live in order to estimate (buyers) or calculate (sellers) shipping costs, and then it often takes a lot of time to get an answer. Wouldn't it be easier just to see which country the other one lives in by just cklicking his name and seeing his profile?
