You guys must be pretty bored to worry about such pedantic things such as how many 'guests' are looking at the site, {:-{ up until yesterday i was one of them!

   Iin regards to posting email and location i can't see why other won't post a location its actuality rather handy to see if there are others close to you for one reason or the other, not to sure on the posting an email though since there is a PM system in the forum as long as my email is not abused by others i have no problem sharing it.

I've read this thread and some of the points which have been made are quite laudable, however,  I am wondering  if a  'guest' will be encouraged to become a member and join our forum on reading it?  :-)

As it was me who started this Topic,I feel ,that its up to me to explain why i started it,as almost all of you have gone off in the wrong direction,It was me and my dry humour,and why,the need to hide,user names,Nothing more,Just me, the Court Jester,as named by a weegie member,who,s right into Mars Bars,and probably Buckie {-)..being his inquisitive self,
 
first of all,It was never about showing Email address,s or Not showing them,It was never about showing locations,
My only reason for starting was, to comment on those  members who hide their user names,at the bottom of the page,
As for the identity of guests,this is not an issue, because,..."i hope i,m right in saying this",...they can,t reply to a topic anon,

One thing worth remembering here is that there is nothing to stop anyone using a bogus location and e-mail address anyway.

Lets face it at the end of the day we rely on people being honest and what ever we put in place will not stop that or stop the dishonest ones doing what they want.

Some guests are, no doubt, robots* sent from Google, Bing and other search engines, trawling the threads and collating data.

*Not like that. These robots are little bits of software that check out sites and return info so that the search engines can rank and rate them.

I thought that only happened in Sci-Fi films, :o.you,re not serious are you,I,ve heard people speak about virus security etc,but i,don,t really know what it is,I ve had this laptop for nigh on 7 years,and it works fine without any of this security stuff,although now and again i see a little worm-like creature,wearing  what looks like glasses  lurking in the lower  right hand corner of my screen,but I just chase him away with my cursor and he disappears for a while, then he re-appears,I never know when he,s going to pop up, but he does,

Ah, they're not looking for you and your laptop, Wullie. They're looking at the site content.

For example, if I google "wasyl model boat mayhem" up pop (some of) your comments.

ZZ  But your entry shows you live in Ontario - if you were to come on the forum looking where you could
get something we would know not to send you down the model shop in London - likewise if something is offered
for sale its handy to know from where the seller is posting - you arent giving your address away by posting your
town or county

Geoff

Well i already have to order most boat-specific supplies online, the only thing stopping me from shopping in the UK are the two Canadian online stores.  :P

It's not so much giving away a street address (spam mailers already got that), it's giving search-bots text to scan so they can send me personalized spam (already started getting that, though...)

also I live in Sudbury, which probably could get mistaken for Sudbury, Suffolk and lead to some hilarious/embarassing conversations.

Sometimes when you register online for a new site they want lots of personal information that they sell on for marketing.

I usually decide not to bother. Or in the options boxes I click Over 70, retired, income less than $15000.
I don't even get spam for denture fix.
