Default Is it illicitly meet anyone on this site?

I post this theme because l got one beautiful one idea! I thought that people who are members on this site can meet each other. Well this is place where can ask someone for his e-mail or his msn address. I think that is not big risk put own e-mail address. So if administrator allow us l would like first ask my cousin Oljaca Alma for her e-mail. And i left to her mine ([email protected]).

P.S. I hope so that people won't abuse this human pretension

Hi,

Why not just use the field on the user's account? Just trying to be cautious. :)

I should have said the Contact Me option on the user's account.

Publishing your email address on a public forum is just like asking for spammer to pollute your mailbox with their scams. Spammers use search engine "robots" to sniff around the WWW pages for things that looks like email addresses so they can gather addresses for their mailing list.
I strongly suggest you use the "contact me" option in the member profile pages.

David, I suggest you don't encourage others to do likewise. As has previously been mentioned, there's a perfectly useable "contact me" facility already available. Best wishes, Paul.
