When it comes to forum responses, I find the ability to see the responders work as quite valuable. If I can see your work, I have a context for assessing your posts. On this site, there are a handful of people to whom I always pay attention. It's because I've seen their work, and respect it. I'm more prone to accept the words of those who I know have done something, rather than those who may have read or heard about something. I also hold those with the confidence to display their work in higher regard than those that don't.
