Okay, somehow I managed to change everything to all the requirements, to the point that my name shows up three times. If everyone can't figure out who I am, than my name ain't Oswald P. Schlabotnik! B)

As Red Green says, "when you get the instructions, throw them away! That way you can claim it didn't come with any. You'll want to hang onto the ones in another language though, you'll need those pictures later!" :lol:

Guys, Harry hit me with this, and as I point out something, what if your don't want to post your full name? I am on afew other clubs and none of them have this rule at all. this is the first place I have ever seen it at. What about privacy? isn't only your first name good enough around here? It's kinda like PayPal and eBay wanting more and more. The first time I join up, it said "first name" so I put that. Now I get a PM from Harry wanting my "whole name" in my signature well.

I don't mind having my first name in there at all, and like I mention to Harry in the pm, people can always pm me. We do have lurkers out there and screw balls also I might ad ..

It's simple, the way I see it.

1. It's the rule.
2. I don't pay the bills to provide the forum.
3. Therefore, I don't get to make the rules.
4. Gregg pays the bills to provide the forum.
5. Therefore, Gregg gets to make the rules.
6. Gregg made the rule.
7. Therefore, it is the rule.
8. If I don't like the rule, I don't have to post here.
9. If I don't follow the rule, Gregg won't let me post here.
10. Because, it's the rule.

How do we know all the names are real names? There is nothing keeping someone from using a fake name.

A "nom de plume"? I can see that. But if I create some new technique, or build a really great model, I'd want to get credit for it as who I am, not "chunkylover53@aol.com" - not my e-mail BTW :angry: I've participated in anonymous forums and I've seen people post some of the most abusive, rascist, bigoted nonsense when they don't have to stand behind a name. I won't particpate in a forum unless it requires real names.

There is FAR too much anonymity on the web AND most of the forums I visit. The presence of a real sig is what makes me come here more & more and less and less at others.

If someone tries to hack my bank account or steal my identity, They will feel sorry for me and add money to my account. They are going to get nothing with my credit lol.

I understand what some of you are saying about this forum not having many members breaking the rules. It is a really nice place to post. However I am a member on a few different forums, (Starshipmodeler, Eagletransporter, ARC Air Forum, VintageBMX, BMXMuseum), and none of them ask for a full name. I consider those to be some of the best forums and they don't really have any 'bad' members. In fact each of those forums has members that have been around for quite a while and who post frequently.

Until anyone actually has been a victim of identity theft, you won't know how that can be. I've had that happen and trust me, it's no fun. The problem with the internet is that anyone can get any info they want if they have the know how. I don't even have a Facebook account. I only join the forums, where in most cases you can remain anonymous and only reveal your information when you choose to. I understand that adding a last name is the rule here but how does anyone know if the last names here are actually the person's last names?!

Well one way to clear it up maybe, if you post your whole name, and then someone gets your identity as in stealing it. And if you only posted it here and no where else, I would go at mcm then because of the issue that someone else just made you. Because like you said and mention almost no other forum will ask you to post your name. Even SAM forum doesn't do that! What good is screen name if you have to post your name as well? they conflict with each other when you set back and think and look at it. I'm on afew other forums myself and NONE of them ask you like this forum does, wait I take that back.. they don't ask you they tell you.

Heck a week ago, I have no idea what the heck had happen, But you can ask Harry P, I had my name in my area like I was asked to, and then some time last week half of it vanish and I thought one of the mods done it so I didn't think anything of it and then he sent me a PM telling it was his 2nd time telling me to post my stuff! After he pm me I then realize the mods didn't do it.. so I went in and fix the issue myself so I wouldn't be breaking the rules on the forum here. But if it wasn't for Harry pming me I wouldn't have thought anything about it. So now I keep a close eye on that area. Harry, thanks for bring that issue to my attention last week.

I must admit that I really struggled to understand most of your post, Jim. However, if you get your identity stolen merely by someone having your first and last name you're being targeted by someone who has access to more information than just that to work with. Just that information, your name, is less than what would be in a phone book or any number of public-access information sources. Using the phone book as an example it has your address and (obviously) phone number too. The same could be said of a business card, or all sorts of other everyday items that might have your name where someone could see it.


Well it's strange that you have a hard time and struggle to understand my post's when in fact everyone else understands them clear as day. :blink: :lol: :lol:

You just said it yourself, a phone book has part of peoples address in it along with names. Now take the forum here plus a phone book. Almost everything falls into place if you know where to look. That's all I'm saying man.

What good is having a screen name if you have to also use your name as well.. it makes no sense at all. :lol:

There are millions of names in phone books all across America. If someone could could steal your identity from just your name, there would be millions and millions of cases every year!

My name is not Chuck Most. Or Charles Most, for that matter. It's really Gondolph Bolivar.

There! Is everybody happy now!

My phone number is unlisted so it doesn't appear in a phone book. I had some trouble with identity theft and like to be able to choose who I give any information too. As I said above, how do we know if any of the last names posted are real.


What good is having a screen name if you have to also use your name as well.. it makes no sense at all. :lol:


Me either.
