May I respectfully suggest that all posts should be tagged / contain some hint of the poster's location, even if only the country. Somtimes you can find out by looking into the poster's profile, but this shouldn't be necessary.
This is an INTERNATIONAL forum, we don't all live in one particular state in the USA! This is especially annoying when someone asks "Where can I buy some XXX?" or "Is there a course on YYY?" and you find out later that they aren't where you thought they were and your reply / research on their behalf was wasted.
I'm sure that none of us mind passing on our tips, experiences, favourite shops / sources etc, but please give us a clue whether our reply is going to be helpful or relevant.
