Hiya
 
Recently I have noticed things like, putting your email address in a post or signature. It isn't officially against healingwell rules for you to put your email in a post. However it is preferred if you put your email address in your profile instead and guide people to that by saying in a post " you can contact me via the information in my profile". The reason being is, people get paid to go through the internet looking for people who have left their email address in forum posts. They are vicous and find ways to spam and send nasty viruses to your email address or sometimes even take over your email account. They can't do this when the address is in your profle. I wanted you too all be aware of this, and if you want to go back to edit your previous posts, this is easy to do, by going to the topic where your post is, finding the post with your email address in and clicking the little pencil in the top right corner of your post. Just go to where the email address and delete it out, then click submit.
 
 
Just thought I'd let you know, as I don't want people getting attacked by spammers and stuff. I'm thinking putting it in your profile, people can also find it, but it's less likely it'll be spambots.
 
Thanks for hearing me out.

Hi Joanne,

No problem, just more of a keeping you safe kinda thing. Not something to appologise for. As I said, not breaking any rules, just want people to be aware. Had to write out original post like 3 times, then went and got a post what I've wrote before and edited that a bit, as didn't want to make it sound like an order.
