If your Personal Information is compromised [AN]

Recommended Posts

I just deleted a thread posted by a user whose personal information was compromised.

It wasn't anything serious, but I have some advice for users who may find themselves in that situation:

1. Don't get in this situation. Your name and town of residence are plenty enough for someone to find you. Do not post that if you are uncomfortable with that fact. Unregistered users may be able to view your profile, so someone who isn't a member could get that info.

2. If you suspect that your information was compromised at SFO, please contact an admin (myself or Steve) via PM or e-mail.

3. Do not post a thread about it. If someone was trolling for a harassment target, you may be telling them that they have found one by doing that. Remember: unregistered users can see threads too.

4. Contact the other community leaders of other sites/forums you are a member of per their processes for doing so. It is possible that if you post info elsewhere that it was not from SFO.

5. If you are a minor, tell your parent(s)/guardian. They have more power to stop harassment than you do.

6. If you feel threatened or harassed, contact your local law enforcement agency.

Pedophile or Paedophile. Depending on which version of English you speak.

While there are some smart ones, most of these guys are easy to identify. They'll start asking you weird personal questions.

Plus, there aren't nearly as many of them out there as the media suggests there are. They probably only make up 1% of internet users, if that much. In fact, most pedophiles find their victims the "old-fashioned" way by watching them at school or wherever and then stalking them.

Okay, now I need to stop myself before I get political.

Check your topic dates, PLEASE. Also, this is more of a PSA than a discussion.
