Posted By: <b>Bill Cornell</b><p>Everyone has their opinions about what is acceptable when posting on this board and many are willing to share these. I want to continue the openness that Elliot allowed, but there is one type of post that I will delete without hesitation, namely, posting of personally indentifiable information without that person's permission. This includes an email address, physical address, and/or a phone number. If you want to publish your own info, that's your prerogative.<BR><BR>Bill<BR>

Posted By: <b>t-206collector</b><p>...to track down personal information should not go unpunished. Rarely, if ever, will you get an admission of guilt in this regard, but MW has admitted doing it and so I believe it deserves some sort of sanction, whatever is appropriate, I don't care. I just don't think it should go unpunished.

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>This isn't a military tribunal, it's a vintage card discussion board. Bill has said not to post personal information - hopefully this will be heeded. <BR><BR>Based on the way the discussions between you and MW have gone, I can understand that you would like to see him "punished" (which I assume implies banning) - this would allow you to post whatever tripe you desired without fear of anyone contradicting you.

Posted By: <b>t206collector</b><p>I believe that personal attacks are unwarranted and that no one should be looking up anyone's IP address. I think it is creepy and I don't think I'm alone.<BR><BR>Obviously you're not alone in looking up people's IP addresses or admitting it. <BR><BR>Of course MW shouldn't be banned, his knowledge far outweighs his obnoxious attitude as far as this board is concerned. I can tolerate his belligerence in order to gain experience. It's a small price to pay, actually.

Posted By: <b>anon</b><p>(I think it's happened twice in the last month, actually) I have their permission to do so. But--how can you tell whether I have permission or not? It's only my word...

Posted By: <b>Bill Cornell</b><p>Julie-<BR><BR>Because you're the least anonymous poster we know, that's why <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>. To be on the safe side, other people's email addresses shouldn't be posted, but there are exceptions, like for dealers who use email for business purposes.<BR><BR>The easy litmus test is: is there a possibility this person would mind having their info made publicly available by me? If you don't know for certain, you should leave it out.<BR><BR>Bill
