Emails and phone numbers in threads

Post by Bill H. » Tue Nov 23, 2021 6:58 pm

I've noticed I'm seeing more and more emails and personal phone numbers in posts lately. I would strongly advise not to do that. For your own safety use the PM feature or emails. You can direct members to your profile for your email. There are scammers and general all around weirdos everywhere and they are very good at what they do. Give them less, they'll have less. Unlike locked sites we have "guests" who can see posts but can't access profiles. I'd hate to see anyone have an issue when steps can be taken to protect yourselves.

Well said Bill. It's an unfortunate fact of online life that there will always be some scammers out there looking for ways to rip someone off.

Hi Bill,

I used to do this as a younger me... I now realise and don't do this, nor want my my number in those threads (going back 10-15+ years).

HOWEVER.... I can't go an edit those threads to remove my number.

Any suggestions?
