Default Personal Information Confusion...

I'm a bit confused... Ok, so just about everyone knows giving out personal info is a major wrong here at WI. (Which I have nothing against. I'm all for not giving it out.)

From what I've been seeing, "giving out personal information" would consists of stuff like, well just telling it, or posting pictures that might contain some personal information of any kind, or stuff like that.

But... as I was just messing around with my page and stuff, I noticed a "Homepage" thing that allows you to put up pretty much any website. And my confusion is - How is this not considered personal information? I mean, isn't that kinda like the same thing? People could very easily use that to share information they're not suppose to...

The staff can remove your "Homepage." It only shows up to the staff and to you, anyway... there used to be a section a long while back with a link to your "Homepage," but then they made the profiles fancy with Visitor Messages and cool customizations.
It's common sense not to post personal info if you want to stay safe both online AND in your own personal life!!
If you post something that contains personal information, the WI staff will take it down and leave the space where you post the url of your "Homepage" blank.

Really? Hmm. Well I can see other people's links to them... Actually, that's another reason why I made this...

But thanks! That did help some.

If you see someone who has a homepage that may contain inappropriate or personal information, you just need to contact a staff member and we will look into it. That link should not be posted.

Anyone can click the "visit my homepage" under your user menu, please be aware it is not limited to staff and yourself exclusively.

Really? I don't see many members w/ home page links anyways ... most of the ones I click just lead back to profiles on here - including yours, lbj14. I just thought that it was blocked or something ...
But yeah, as tarsky said, it's just common sense not to post personal info - I mean like, you wouldn't go running down the street screaming your social security number, right? xD Most members already know the rules, so hopefully they know not to lead to a too-personal website.

Well yeah, that's true, I know it's common sense, but some people break the rules, just cuz, well they can! XD. Oh! And the reason mine is my page is because I set it that way.
