This is one situation on here that I as well as other people do not want to have a repeat of.If you wish to find a partner on the Internet please do it on a dating site or go find someone in the real world like in your suburb or at school , Uni, Tafe or College or at a nightclub or pub not in a chatsite. I would only meet someone at, say, Starbucks if I thought, after months of messaging that they might be cool enough to be worth my time.That's crazy to just give out your home address and stuff on-line.
I have seen a site with a thing that had a town as a variable within some sort of advertisement. You are saying this stuff about giving personal details on the internet is dangerous and yet you are giving out your e-mail adrress and your MSN messenger or whatever it is. Giving out personal information on the internet is perfectly safe if you trust the person you are giving it to. You just have to know whether or not you can trust the person, and usually I am good at deciding whether people are trustworthy or not.
But that is probably because you don't get untrustworthy people at the sites that I visit.
I find it really depends on where you come across these people that need your information. cus it sounds like your ignoring everything that has been said ..........
Due to a certain situation that has accured and a lack of communication and a fight erupting unexpectedly on the wrongplanet chatsite which has ended up with one person being banned we have had to come on here too explain the serveraty of the situation.
One we can't express enough that giving out personal information to anyone on a Internet site is dangerous as well as plain stupid this young man gave out his home address,mobile phone number and his last name and was in the process of orginising a meeting with a person who he assumed would be his very first girlfriend.
I was the one he gave these details too which out of respect and privacy I deleted straight away I ended up giving him a false home address, someone elses mobile phone number and a false last name and first name I can't express enough that you do not give out these kind of personal details too anyone on a Internet site.As I just explained anyone who is on a chatsite could be anyone someone could come on as a female but really is a 50 year old man sitting behind a computer console trying to lure a unsuspecting child to meet up with him or vise versa.I think a better chatroom should be in place i've heard of many people imitating other member's.I think a chatroom where you put your username in and your password.Anyone can use the chatroom even visitor's i think member's only. Regards, mightyzebra Name, address, and phone number are very, very different from the e-mail address and msn screen name.It seems to me that information like that isn't too hard to find anyway. I have recieved tons of emails that called me by name. Regards, mightyzebra You are saying this stuff about giving personal details on the internet is dangerous and yet you are giving out your e-mail adrress and your MSN messenger or whatever it is. From the email address all that someone can find is what city your ISP is located in; nothing more...
