After A Long Hiatus, I Am Back...? Or am I?

So... tried to login a couple months ago and found that my account had been deleted, with no way to find out why. I certainly hadn't posted anything in awhile, so I didn't know if it was due to account inactivity or what. Somehow I managed to find out it was because I have/had a Gmail account. Seriously? Not cool, folks. I realize that Google is probably one of the most spammed email sites on the Web, but seems to me that a warning email could have been sent to those who were at risk.

Nevertheless, I have seen the light and have officially abandoned my Gmail account. Seems they have no respect for one's privacy, insisting that your name be made public simply to have a profile. Sorry, no one gets my name unless I WANT them to have it. Anonymity is one your best assets on the InterNet, one piece of information can open the door for more to be found, next thing you know, your credit is stolen and your bank account drained. Just wish my old posts were still available... Several conversations I was involved in no longer make sense LOL...

Quick question... Is this going to be an ongoing thing?

I was wondering why you all of a sudden had such a low post count.

Paranoia is my friend, and why none of my emails and logins have my real name in any of them. The only person besides my Mate that knows who I actually am is Lorna (and that's only because she won't stop talking about my sister and I. REAL NAMES, Mum, STOP USING THEM).

Apologies! Things were out of control and we did the best we could to try and retain "real" people as opposed to a bunch of hackers / spammers. Hopefully things will be squared around from here on out. I promise we won't have troubles like this again! Glad you're back (and sorry about your previous posts)!

I'm very paranoid too, that is why I use my real name. They think I'm using a fake name and try to guess and never guess my real name. They would never think I so stupid as to use my real name. You got to always out smart them.
