Using Email Address

Post by chinagringo on Sun Feb 28, 2010 12:08 pm

We had a new forum member use their email address as member name this week and now Gnarley has revised that.

It is a good idea NOT to use your actual email address in either your member name or in the body of a post! Spammers have programs to harvest email addresses from public forums. While there are some commonly used techniques for disguising addresses, the spammers even have programs to figure some of these out. Probably the safest thing to do is send your email address in a PM should you wish to pass that info on to someone.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain
