    Regarding Emails and PMs

    Guy due to all the stuff going on lately and just as a rule of thumb I DONT answer emails from people I don't know, identify yourself as to who you are from the board - and dont even think about asking me for a source if i dont know you....

    Thanks guys - I know this comes across as me being a prick but we really gotta start being more careful about how we conduct ourselves.

    I have spoken with our webdesigner. I have pretty much the same backdoor access as he does, and he nor I have access to any of the PMs being sent. Everything is password protected in everyone's account. But remember, regular E-mail is not secure. So there is a possibility that this stuff could be monitored from the outside. Just be safe.

    No. Anything not SSL 128 bit encryption isn't secure in my book.

    I put up a post similar to this one a few months back, and in my opinion, Pm's are more secure than say Hotmail. Hushmail, and Ziplip, both are good, but they are stored on someone else's server, therefore, can be retrieved with proper search warrants from the Fed's or DEA. NOthing is secure on the Internet, trust me I do this sort of thing everyday. Sure 128 bit encription is good, but those servers cache everything you do, therefore, it can be easily obtain with proper knowledge.
    I had an email from someone on this board, and I refuse to answer guy wanted to know where I was from. A PM I will answer in most cases, unless it is a stupid question like "Do you have any sources you can give me"?.
    I totally agree EVERYONE should be more careful of who you deal with and what you say.
