On more than one occasion I have warned people to not put their address in posts when doing a trade, you should send it in a PM. It's not only the good members here who can read them. These days with identity theft, the less information an outsider  can find about you, the better. 

 

Also if you reply to a post with an address, please for the sake of others, edit the address out of your quote.

People also do the same with phone numbers and email addresses. 99% of the people on the internet are trustworthy, 1% aren't and you won't know which one is reading and abusing your information until they have done their damage.

Yup, don’t post your address or other info. And, think twice before posting photos of your “stash.”

In recent years, one of our long-time members had his house burglarized on Christmas Eve. The thieves stole a lot of his best models, then trashed the rest. He always felt it was an “inside job”. We’ll never know if it had any connection to the Forum, but why take chances with putting your info out there???
