I can’t more strongly stress this warning more than this post.
Giving out your personal email address to anyone on TGH or CDH is very risky and I am totally against it. And Beware of offsite communication.
We are a community and we should be comfortable with sharing on site our stories. Though some of us may communicate offsite in personal chats and group chats, you most understand that you enter those conversations at your own accord and what is exchanged in those rooms are not protected by TGH or CDH “Terms of Service”
I am aware of a mass email exchange by a member who created two accounts and used one name, asking you to send them your email address. If you received a message from this person, Please Delete it and not Reply.
Thank you all for your membership with our community, and please contact me if you ever have an issue that may violate our rules.
“comfortable sharing our stories?”
If I am not comfortable sharing should I not be here? Unfortunately, it appears that the forums are indexed by search engines, so the idea that this is an insular community is somewhat flawed. I would be willing to share with the community here; I am not willing to share with the Internet as a whole.
