We do not want any of our members to post contact details on the forum, this includes instant messengers ids and emails.

There are 2 reasons for this:

  1. It's stupid - your email address will be picked up by the numerous harvesting bots that roam that internet and you'll get spammed to death. If you want someone to email you then they can do it by pressing the "email" button on your profile - this is a much safer way to do it.
  2. We would like to encourage active participation on the forums. Often new users come on, say something, and then just say "email me at..." and they never return to the forum. They obviously don't want to hang around our amazing little community and just want to leech off us.
