i keep reading people discussing the posting of 'too much' personal infomation in these forums.

is it true you could actually get banned for posting your own info?
is an actual pic of you in your avatar too much?
what about your real hometown or actual state?

just wondering..

Hi and welcome. I would say don't post your home phone number and address. City and state I don't see as any big deal unless you think it is. The posts stay on here forever unless deleted by the mods so someone could piece together information you posted years ago if you ever revealed too much. For instance you post information you should not have and later on you reveal you work for the government. Then your boss finds out or a stalker finds you, etc. etc. Just use reason. This isn't facebook where you have pics of yourself, friends, etc. and what you are doing but a conspiracy website where many are seriously paranoid.

As a disclaimer, I don't recall what any of the official rules say anymore.

That is what is at the bottom of the place you write posts. So now you know.

I'm sure you are a special person but why do you wish to make your identity known?

As far as I know, it's not forbidden to post personal information, some people even use their own names, and some people do not mind to publish who they are and where they live (or just who they are, if publicly know then their address may be already known).

The Terms & Conditions only forbid that we ask for personal information, and I don't remember someone being punished for publishing their own personal data.

I think that publishing other people's data is also forbidden.

PS: welcome to ATS.
