McHaggis sorry to hear of your back, but posting your own full home address anywhere on the web is INSANE - IMHO, especially on board that gets a million hits a WEEK. If you are burgled next week of all your stamps, do not blame us.
And posting another member's email address
is strictly against our privacy terms. You seem unaware that cannot be a valid email as it does not have a suffix. Luckily for you.
Please READ this as an example of what can occur when you foolishly plonk your address out there for all to see. Board direct emails are WHY we enable that function. http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=35710
Which is WHY we have this excellent rule HERE - but there are always some who feel rules do not apply to them in life.
Some protest we have "too many" rules, but instances like that prove they are all there for GOOD REASON -
19. Guard Your Privacy
Keeping personal information personal is a good tip. If you want to share your personal information with another member of the community, do so via e-mail, or not via the boards. If you DO want to post your email on a thread for any reason we INSIST
you use this kind of disguised style - georgebush [at] aol.com
as it will not then be "harvested" by spam bots trawling websites looking for the curly "(at)" sign, which always means a current valid email address - and then bombarding you with masses of Spam and porn etc. We get LOTS of such bots regularly trying to access this site. The same with posting your personal phone numbers - do NOT do it please
- for your own privacy. Contact the other members via the safe and hidden private email system. Moderators will amend any posts that breach either of these rules that they see - with no notice. http://www.stampboards.com
respects members' privacy. None of your personal contact information or email address etc will be posted or visible on the forums unless you post it yourself.
By signing up here you specifically AGREED to receive emails from us of any topic replies when you tick that you want those, and you agreed to receive the monthly newsletters and admin advices from us. Some members post up covers or letters addressed to them, showing their full name and address. We strongly
recommend you do NOT
do that - try and disguise that data. YOU
are entirely responsible if burgled a week later. stampboards gets over two MILLION page views a month
- you never know WHO is reading your posts - or for what reason.
