Re: [RFC] Modern profile fields in 3.1

Dude... Why waste time on removing something which is being used? I would agree if it was a discussion about adding functionality, but this isn't.

Members in Amish communities love their horses and carriages too. But the rest of the world has kind of moved on to cars and other forms of transport.
