it must be a choice or the default???  they don't all pull it out of thin air.

I was hopelessly lost for a while until I found my way around the forum.  Maybe they are the same? :?

Yes, it is the default if left blank.   The idea is to give them some insentive to add their location.  Having in blank doesn't catch their eye (or JP's) as "Hopelessly Lost" does.

Could a location be made a required field with no default?

Sure it could be, but that would be a hit to the base forum code as currently the location field is not part of the registration process.  That would make upgrades not seamless, so don't expect it to happen.
