    Hi all,

    I owe you all an apology. I have been discouraging email exchanges in chat to members and my fellow moderators. This was a misunderstanding on my part, I'm very sorry.

    Here is a repost that a member brought to my attention (thank you):

    As per a recent rule change, you may exchange email addresses in the
    room. However, please make sure you are aware of the security/privacy
    that may arise from exchanging email addresses over the internet. If you
    still want to exchange, it's a good idea to do so in an empty room, so
    email address is only seen by those who you want to have it.
    Posting email addresses on the message boards is NOT allowed. There are
    still many privacy issues concerning this, such as 'harvesting' of email
    addresses to be put on Spam lists.

    Thanks for the clarification. Of course, we all need to be very careful who we deal with even though we may think we really "know" someone from Chat.

    The reality is that it's a dangerous world out there. There are people who are quick to take advantage of a muddled brain; of someone's financial situation, of someone's generosity.

    Be very careful, please, folks.
