E-mail Addresses in Discussions

Recommended Posts

The internet is a dangerous place.  The last time I looked, around 60 percent of the internet traffic is produced by robots.  Some of these robots are the typcial search engines looking for information to add to their database--such as google.  That allows you to find information in a google search.  When you add your e-mail address to a post, that e-mail address goes into the database.

The internet also is littered with unfriendly robots looking for e-mail addresses to spam and scam.  The e-mail address this forum asks you for during registration are hidden from the public and as long as this software works as it is designed to they are safely hidden.

In short, PLEASE do not post your e-mail address in a post.  Use the messenger service this software provides and clean your messages often.
