….OK!….I will try to continue to post reviews of the forum Rules here.
None of these post are directed at anyone member…they are just reminders of the forum rules and are a reviews of each one of them. 7. Do not post offline personal contact information (ie. your home address, phone numbers etc.) and do not ask for personal information from others. This is to protect your security and identity.
My own view of the rule: It is important that each member protects their privacy….and the Admin feels it's best, and for obvious reasons not to list your home address, phone number and other personal information about
If you wish to share your email address, you can do so on your personal profile page. Sharing information such as country, state and or city is fine, but remember the Admin ask us not to post personal home address's.
Again, these rules and guidelines are here to protect you! Please use good judgement and common sense when you contact other members via email and or phone. Many of us have made contact with members and often visit by phone, Skype…and other means. I personally have made many many good friends this way….in fact I have even met some of them face to face….and it was a wonderful experience. All in all…again…please be careful and the best protection is to follow the rules here.
If you think about
it, and read the rule here…..it's just common sense. If you post your email address, it
opens the doors to spammers and possibly unwanted emails from visitors who are lurking the forums. This includes anyone surfing the web! …..While you may post your email address in your profile page, it still does not protect you completely….but reduced the chances by quite a bit. It's up to you to protect yourself as best you can.
….all rules for the forums may be found here and or click on the "Forum Rules" button at the top righthand of the forum pages. www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=46&m=106997
…Please take some time and read them for your own reference.
