Beware of Posting Your E-Mail Address...

Postby Tom in D.C. » Sat Mar 06, 2010 8:14 am

I've noticed a trend, particularly on the part of newer Board members, to post their personal e-mail addresses as part of their posts. This is definitely NOT a good idea, because the Board is swept regularly by Bots such as Yahoo, Google, and others and your information can be picked and posted for anyone to see. This Board's setup has the capability of allowing you to e-mail other members directly so you should probably be sure you're set up for this and use this method. In general, using Private Messages (PM) is probably even safer. Unfortunately, I don't have a fix for when you send either kind of message to a person who only checks his board every week or so; that's just something we all have to live with.

If you're new to the Board, or perhaps more to the point if you're new to e-mail, please read this post. The problem/situation seems to keep occurring.
