    This thread should be added to the forum rules or at least or made a sticky as mentioned.
    There has been a few times where I just kept on browsing due to a question which didn't have enough supporting information to answer it correctly.

    I agree and more...........WHY should anybody on any "friendly" forum be SO SECRETIVE
    about their name and basic location.....
    If I meet you at the Camaro Nationals and introduce myself, youre going to say
    Hi my name "Dirt Mod or Joe Camaro".......this Screen Name, secret stuff is
    absolutely B.S

    Explain to me, how telling you my name is CHUCK SHARIN
    and I live in the area close to Auburn, WA is putting me any
    danger of having my ID stolen......
    Explain in language that I can understand how YOU are going
    to obtain my SS #, Credit Card Numbers, Pin Numbers.....

    Am i that stupid or have I just been that "lucky"

    FYI.....I do use Malware Bytes & AVAST Antivirus

    With only your name and the state you live in a person can find the exact location of your valuable cars/tools etc. AND your trash can. Its true this is a friendly forum BUT its exposed to the PUBLIC who may not be so friendly.

    To be honest, when I 1st got internet, everyone used a screen name or email,
    so that's what I did, mrdragster1970 is my 1st email address.
    Now a days, who knows what these frigging punk hackers can figure out???

    I have no problem with using email, nick names or a made up name.
    The issue is posting something with zero information when you need help.
    A general area will let people know they are your neighbor.
    Like I said, sometimes it's much easier to help a guy by showing him how you did yours??
    or running by and check out his project??
    If you get a guy asking to meet up or invites you over to check on his progress,
    you can usually tell if he's an idiot or a nut from his posts.
    If he's a racist, idiotic, nut job in your opinion, then he should be on your block moron list,
    and you won't have to worry about him asking to meet up.
    I might be a stubborn, loud mouth, opinionated jerk, but I'm not a lying, conman, POS criminal!!!!
    I hope I help, more then I screw up??

    Not as much on this site, because you guys don't dragrace as much as I do.
    On other sites, ton's of guys have seen my cars, and either dropped by the trailer, or sent me a note saying hi.
    Some even sent photo's & video's, so it was a win for me by posting photo's & telling people that's me.

    One guy even drove down to southern Illinois to pick up my new trailer so I didn't have to drive alone.
    We both own a business and could go during the day.
    I went with him to Grand Rapids to pick up his car from the painter.
