Why is real life profile picture small?

It's small because that's the way it's designed -- it's a thumbnail. Who knows why?  It's also not designed to get any bigger simply by clicking on it, but I suppose that you could use software that is meant for people who are visually impaired, or you could do a screen capture and then enlarge the image in your image processing software (Photoshop, GIMP, CorelDraw, ....).

Snarky replies don't really do anyone any good, fill these threads with useless scroll-fodder, and only make the commenter look really bad. So I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and just presume that after your profile hunt for a genuine RL picture has been all miss and no hit that has gotten you into a grumpy mood, allow me to lift your spirits.

Now, now.  She wasn't being snarky. Only exaggerating a little bit.  A more accurate response would have been, "It's very hard to find many people who put a RL photo in their profiles, because most people are very cautious about spoofing or identity theft. You'll find that very many people post a cartoon or a photo of a pet or just leave that part of the profile blank."

My RL photo is true, but you'll have to guess which of the two heavenly bodies is mine.

Precisely. Which is what makes the snarky one snarky. And with that said, I salute you for your candor. :)

She was being funny. Your definition of snark is wrong.

Nobody actually puts their Real Life picture there anyway.

Qa Boa.

Go ahead. Go look.

It contributed nothing to the thread, which makes it snarky. *Laughs*.

You have my permission to take the last word on the subject.

See what I did there? I was being funny, though, to everyone else, I suspect it will be considered snarky. :)
