How to: Keep Your Email Address Safe from Spammers

Post by beagle » Tue Jan 09, 2007 7:17 pm

Some members may be unaware that by posting their email address on bassplayer.co.nz could allow it to be harvested by spammers. Here are a couple of tips to minimise the chance of that happening.

1. Don't display your email address in the text of any posts. Use the Instant Message system provided by bassplayer.co.nz to contact other members. It's also safe and keeps you anonymous.

2. In your profile settings make sure that you have the 'Always show my e-mail address' option set to OFF.

And that's it!
