    Are we allowed to give out our e-mail address on a post or in our profile?

    Yes, we can do that, but please just be aware that there are lurkers on the internet who check people's profiles for their e-mail addresses. They do this to hack into computers, to send spam e-mail ads, and to send porn through e-mails. If you post your address anywhere here, you may be taking a chance. We do not recommend it.

    What seems to work better is to spend time on our boards and if there is someone you want to contact, post your address on our Chit Chat Forum (not a chat room) in a post addressed to that person. Ask the person to acknowledge that he or she has your address and then go in and delete the post. This isn't foolproof but safer than just putting it out there for anyone to see and possibly abuse.

    You can click on Message Boards in the strip above and find all our other boards.

    Love, Mikie

    Would you believe I have one that I used to get on this site and I am still paranoid.
    Who knows, 5 years from now, next week, if someone will read things I don't think is their business.
    There are some crazy people out there that will use things against you.
    I used to be a magnet for them!
