Avoid posting your email address in the forum

Postby Pal » Wed, 16 Mar 2005 2:07 am

Hi all,

Seems like alot of forum users posted their email address in the forum, this is not advisable as posting your email address online will invite spam bots (email harvesting scripts) to pick up your email and add into their mailing (spamming) list. Before long, you will notice tonnes of junk mails in your mailbox.

Therefore, you are advised to register and use the PM (Private Message) function of this forum to communicate between yourselves.

If anyone would like to setup a UserGroup in the forum (for eg. Wed Nite Outing Group, Bowling Group, etc.) please drop me a mail so that I can create a new group and setup a private folder for it.

I had the same problem... I think it takes approx. 2 days until you are allowed to write PMs...

putting one's email ad in the message

Mr. Admin,
Can you do me a favor and help delete my ad with the same title as above?

I have a hard time finding a way to do it myself. Either I am not authorized, my login is incorrect, or the I am not able to PM.

I have my email ID written in the message. Thanks. Appreciate it.
