I will bring up again why we require/request your name here.
We are an online family (ohana) of model car builders.
We like to know who or whom we are talking to online.
We are not lurkers, trolls, or other wanna-be's online prowling web sites looking for victims.
If you wish, I could require that anyone viewing the forum be registered and logged in to do so.
I would feel better about that myself, and that's one setting I have not implemented, yet.
I may, and if I get any feedback, negative of course, I would just ban you!!!
Just kidding, I would simply just delete your account..... B)

You stand a bigger chance of having your identity stolen from the doctor's office than from here. Your personal information is a public record- ever own a piece of property? apply for a loan? been admitted to a hospital? Think about all of the people who have seen that paperwork.

For about $25 a year, I have identity theft insurance as part of my homeowners' policy and they will take care of any issues that come about of theft.

For whatever reason, my seventh grade daughter brought home some paperwork from school today and they asked for her social security number. My wife wanted to know why they needed that information and I kiddingly replied that with all of the budget cuts, they must be planning on getting a credit card in her name to help pay the school bills!

I will try for one week to not allow "Guest" viewing of the forum
That way, we all know who or whom is looking at who or whom.

And Danno, this one's for you!!!

LOL! Yup. Buh-bye! :rolleyes:

(Although that appears to be a small family. Only one truck.) :)

So far I've PM'd about 150 members who don't have their whole name in their signature. So far. (I PM them as I see them).

Apparently there are a whole lot of people who didn't bother to read the rules that they agreed to when they signed on! B)

I wonder if these are the same people that would sign a contract without reading it??? B)

A lot of chatter about nothing........if you own a 'puter and are online anywhere for any reason, guess what?
When you get right down to it even if you don't have a 'puter, you can be found and your identity stolen.
It's really simple folks (at least in my mind) if you don't want to post your name for whatever reason, you probably shouldn't be here, or anywhere else for that matter.
Even with a bogus name you still have an IP addy so what's the point you guys that don't want to use your name are trying to make?
