Should our members be required to have a profile picture that is actually their own picture?

This topic comes up from time to time, so I thought I'd pose the question to all of you. The purpose of meetup is to meet in person, make friends, share resources, etc. If we are all planning to meet, should we have our picture posted? If someone is hosting an event, whether at their home or out somewhere, is it a courtesy and/or potential safety issue to know in advance what people you are meeting look like? Just some thoughts. Please post if you feel it should be required or not that we all have real pictures of ourselves.
