    A reminder:
    I would always recommend that people think twice before revealing personal information unless they are happy and confident about it becoming public knowledge.

    A Warning:
    If anyone tries to reveal personal information about someone else then the post will be deleted & the account will be locked. I do not care who it is or why - we have had people doing this in the past and I cannot think of any justification for it other than bullying or some kind of power trip.

    Thanks Simon!

    I totally agree with your approach to this issue. There should be zero tolerance of those who post other's personal information as there is a real possibility and even a probability of adverse consequences to the person who has been exposed in this manner.

    Additionally, those who publicly disclose the personal data of others might also consider the fact that such conduct could expose them to legal consequences, including, without limitation, civil liability for invasion of privacy.

    Thanks again simon. I guess the world wouldn't come to an end but it would defenately make surfing the net no fun anymore. It would also feel pretty rotten.

    I would just like to add, with out wishing to scare anybody, that as I have done in the past to show people what CAN be done, you can generally find people with just a town or city and surname on the internet. I would always withhold one of these pieces of information or the other if not both if you are of a cautious nature. Of course, some people don't give a toss, but that is up to them. Others here have good reasons why they do not wish to be identified.

    totally inaccurate personal information is ok ... or is there another Simon on the planet? (nah ... surely I'm unique ... )
