8) (I just tried to post this, but I think I messed up -- must be because it's 5:40am.)

I just Googled myself and found that all of my posts in this forum come up. I don't want that. I use my full name and my email address with my posts, but I don't want them all to come up for every Tom, Dick and Harry who knows my name.

Is there a way around this?

Thank you,

Bob

Re-register and use an alias name I think. Never use your main email address in postings on the web anywhere. Robots will find it and you'll start getting spam mail! You can edit your details as of now, but don't know if new details apply to past posts. As far as I know this Forum is not mirrored, but send Steve a private message.

I tried the same search and came up w/
the same result. At least ( when you click on
the link) you go to the sign in page and not
your profile.

You know? I don't care. What's the old joke...once you participate actively on the web, you only have the illusion of privacy. I say nothing here that humiliates me. It's a public forum, so why should I care if other people in the "public" see posts?
