OK, I can understand why people might not want to put their email address in their profile but at least put your state in to give us a clue so we know if we live any place close.

I used to post a brief profile with the website I frequented. I also used to get nuisance eMail, spam, trollers, etc. Recent improvements in anti spam took care of that but the nuisance eMail and trollers were still a pain. I complained to a friend and he suggested I clean out all but the bare bones. I did and after a year most of the other stuff has faded away.

My generic email address has been listed on this site for around 5 years. I never get spammed, and I have no spam filters. I don’t claim to know exactly how email addresses are collected, but if they are harvested from sites like this, why do I never get spam?

And I agree John, what is the harm in letting us know what part of the world you are in.

LOcal biker rights organization posted phone numbers and addresses.

Sure enough people used the information as a shopping list to steal motorcycles, Harleys to be exact. I stood up and informed them of thier folly and all eyes looked to me. (because I had biker tattoos)

I don't have anything to steal anymore. My old bike is not worth the trouble for most people.

People should post thier home-/states anyways.

Agree that everyone should put state or country in profile. If paranoid about email you can simply leave it out or put a fake email address in.

On the "other" forum you can still contact each other via the private message feature http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif
