personal info in posts
« on: April 27, 2007, 03:36:40 PM »

we may all be an extended family here, but i have noticed more and more people putting personal email addresses and phone numbers in their posts.

remember anyone can view this information they don't need to be a member.

you should instead post "PM me and I'll send you my number/email address"

being too trusting of eachother could find that personal info in google

Neal, it's optional to show your email address in your profile. Are you saying we should hide it there? I guess anyone can be a member and access profiles. I think I just answered my own question. Thanks. Hoist! 8)

I believe you can still see it, but you will be happy to know I can't.  I just did mine and I see it, check my profile and I think you won't.

You will be able to see it in your profile, but other members will not if you have that box checked.

Thanks Roger and Gary for the response.

What I meant was the email icon is still under my name/motorcycle on the LH side of each post I respond to (next to the PM icon) even though I have the box checked in my profile not to show email address.

We don't see that on our computers, you see it since it is yours, members don't see it though.  I see mine as well.
