Telephone numbers - a reminder!!
Contrary to advice given in our 'Using this Site' section mobile/telephone numbers are still being put in messages. Email addresses linked to mobile numbers have also been used.
These practices can have unfortunate repercussions and, for your own protection, are not approved.
The advice given in the section 'Using this Site' which was posted by the Board Administrator reads as follows:
Please do not include phone numbers in your messages. To enable other members and users of the site to contact you please supply an email address.
We prefer users not to include phone numbers because:
-We do not provide a facility to remove messages posted, if you change your mind your message could remain on line for sometime.
-Occasionally individuals post vindictive messages including other peoples phone numbers. All cases are investigated and information supplied to the originators ISP regarding the offence on request, wasting valuable time which could be used in developing this site.
-If you do wish to include a phone number please include it in a member profile, where email addresses are verified.
Remember also - your messages may be trawled by search engines such as Google and Yahoo and your details could appear on their websites. Whilst we can remove messages and details from Gaybod we cannot remove them if copied onto other websites.
For your own protection please accept our advice which is given with the experience of having to resolve issues for members and guests who have experienced problems after posting their mobile number, and do not include yours openly in your messages.
