Just a reminder that you should be careful about giving out your personal information over the net. Email addresses are OK, but you shouldn't give your home address, phone number, school or sirname out on the net if you want to protect your identity.

Remember, anyone can read the information you put up on this board, so if you want to make e-friends then perhaps get people to private message you to get your email. You should definately not put up your address or other personal details on this board.

You need to be wary about people you meet on the internet, because you do not know who they really are. But don't let this stop you from making online friends, just be very cautious about how much information you give out about yourself.

Yes. I agree as well. I almost had an experience by giving out too much personal data on line. It was close.

I agree also.. many people put themselves in harms way by posting too much personal info online.

Email addresses are OK


I don't think anyone should give out even this personal information. You never know what kind of vermin could use this personal information to try to contact you.

But what is a sirname?


I think the OP meant surname. Your surname is your last name. For example, if your name is Suzy Pringle, your surname is Pringle.
