Hello Everyone,

We do not want trolls :troll: and spammers collecting your email address so please uncheck the box to make your email address private.  The instructions on how to do this is below.  If not, we will be removing them as we see them.  Safety first.  This is the internet. :pc:

We will also be removing all emails posted on the forum as we see them.  It should also be noted that Staff will be removing all phone numbers and last names from posts.  We are doing this for your own protection and privacy.  If you'd like to talk to each other privately, please use the PM function, if you have earned that privilege.  That's what it's there for.   Abuse of this privilege will result in the removing of your ability to PM.  This is for your safety.

We have bots that go through this forum.   We can not control the bots.  Some of them are servers looking to update their information and others are collecting email addresses to send spam, etc to. 

We are also noticing names registering that represent internet drug companies that don't look on the up and up.  So, this is really for your safety.  Your security is important to us.

We are also asking that you DO NOT post your email in the chat room either.  We have caught these same trolls selling drugs, sharing porn and looking for 'dates' in the chat.


How to Make Your Email Address Private:

At the top of the screen (or side) you will see "My Account".  Click on that.  Then click on "Profile".  Then uncheck "Allow others to view my email address" and then click "Save".  If you have a signature the signature will probably disappear.  Someone from the staff can put it back in for you. :wink:

If you have problems doing this and want us to help you do that please tell us and we will be happy to assist you.  Just send us a PM or email.

On a side thought: Please DO NOT open emails from people who you DO NOT know!  Especially if the email has an attachment.


APS Friends & Support Staff :)
