Posted my number on this site a bunch of times. Never had one crank call, one problem, or any reason to believe I'd have one.

It amazes me that people spend so much time on a message board yet are afraid of the people. I've met a bunch of you. Ya'll are Nuts for the Broncos but that is about it.

I once had an anonymous email with my home address in it threatening to murder my wife because someone didn't like a moderating decision I made.

In other instances, I've seen people lose jobs (or come close to) over stuff they posted online because someone found out enough about the person to make a positive ID and either run to their boss with it -- or worse, run to the press. I have a story from the New Mexico something or other printed and filed about a police officer who lost his job over stuff that he posted in the WPR forum of this site.

Posting personal information on a public forum is risky business. Most of the time, you'll be ok. But all it takes is one looney tune to ruin the party.

Which is why I learned my lesson and am sorry I broke that rule TJ. Just wanted to say it again.

It's all good.

Some people here seem to think that I make arbitrary decisions around this place just so that I can get my jollies off wielding power. The reality is every decision I make is ultimately to protect the integrity of the forum and the people posting in the best ways that I know how.

I had an idea who it was, so I wasn't actually too concerned about it - but still - it wasn't a pleasant experience.

This was three or four years ago, before my son was born.

Something like that probably should have been reported to law enforcement... very scary and far beyond the boundaries of acceptability.

I'm pretty sure John Engelberger is going to stalk me for trying to run him out of his gravy-train starting job at some point. He looks like stalker material, too.

Credit score used to be extreemy confidential, yet often, the loan applicant was often kept from knowing exactly what prevented him from getting a favorable rate.

Then it morphed into this you NEED A HIGH NUMBER bullshiat. No matter your net worth or ability to pay, or even your debt to eqity ratio.

Now "the credit score" has bacome a reason to arbitrarily raise rates on revolving credit for something as minimal as a date recieved over the weekens, improperly made out ect.

Once one gets 2 late pays, all the revolving credtit goes to default rates. Everything.

This started during the Carter adm. and is the reason credit cards exploded in the 80's. Volker raised the prime to 22% which froze credit. States like Delaware and SD passed legislation as "tech development" luring CC companies to base operations in "zones" to issue credit aver the 21% usury law.

I know, you have just apologized more than once in this thread if I remember correctly.

And sadly not surprising at all. Look at the fallout over the boob thread. You'd think slavery was restarted.

That was crazy. That boob thread was churning along like the game day thread for a while there.

KEEP ALL CONTACT INFORMATION OFF OF THIS PUBLIC FORUM

Nothing good comes of it. NOTHING AT ALL.

I can't believe that I even have to explain this.
Wow, you're a real cock, Taco.
