Thanks for the reminder, and about the rules, I know a lot of people just scroll down and check the box. Personal info is a HUGE thing online, and could lead to horrible things if shared.

Yeah;like once every month or so.

Yeah even if your over 18; but it's best not to release your age at all.

Yeah like someone releases personal information and they say: "i'm never gonna get stalked" and they end up getting stalked.

Usually I am against remiders, I find them annoying, but in this case, this one is well-founded, Please report the person and tell your parents.

This is very true. Just because you have read every rule doesn't mean everyone else has. My dad always says "It's not you I don't trust, it's all the wackos out there."

Thank you for this thread.
I just had a WI post her/his age last week and ask if this was O.K.

I came back with a/an infatic NO, it is not O.K.
I'm sure a Mod picked it up later, but I was afraid more personal information would be released if not addressed right away.
Thanks for the reminder.
Maybe one of these should be posted on the weekends for a gentle reminder to the students who have time to surf WI.

The best way to get a mod to a post immediately is to flag the exact post. Click the little red flag off to the left of the post and then enter the reason you are flagging it. Usually within minutes it's taken care of.

My parents say the same thing too me and my sister: "I trust you;but not the strangers"
