My understanding was that to join ATS, you had to have a non free email address. This is a way to cut down on the kooks and spamers out there!

If you don't want people you don't want to know you contact details for IM programs, then why do you put it in the Control Panel form so people can get it.

Why not write something like, u2u me if you want my msn, yahoo...?

Cause my details are public, still doesnt give people the right to add me out the blue with insane theory or claims that are insane.

Whats the point of having your stuff public if you don't want people do add you out of the blue.

I'd rather have people u2u me asking for my stuff and then deciding whether or not to give them the details.

Bombarding you with insane stuff though. That's just wrong.

Then what is having your details public for then?

It's just an invitation for people to add you. It's like writing 'ADD ME' in giant letters in your signature

Well hopefully my signature will scare the trolls away.
They are public cause when members ask for my details, i tell them its on my profile and then they add me. Members who ask = Nice members

You got a problem with Jigglypuff? Yeah I know, I've been through this with my son, it's coming to an end but I've got a 10 and 8 year old. I figure I've got to put up with this for another 4 years of Pokemon..

What is a troll?

There are four basic types of Troll.

------------------------------

Subject: 3.1 The old definition

The old definition of a Troll is one who posts to generate
the maximum number of follow ups. These are a very minor
irritation, and can be considered to be advantageous to
newsgroups.

------------------------------

Subject: 3.2 The Irritating Troll

Some merely post drivel, or tirades against netnannies and
netcops, often at a BI of over 20. In general they cause
little real damage to newsgroups.

------------------------------

Subject: 3.3 The destructive Troll

In about the year 1999 a new breed of Troll appeared who
have the declared intention of destroying a specific Target
newsgroup. This is done by a variety of posts, (see
Section 4) intended to drive normal posters away from the
specific newsgroup.

------------------------------

Subject: 3.4 The nasty Troll

If anyone does anything which will interfere with the
troll's ability to cause mayhem, they can become very
nasty, posting from obviously incorrect variations of the
name etc. insults, call them netcops, netnannies,
homosexuals.

Various off usenet methods are also used to force the
victim to stop posting: Subscribing the victim to hundreds
of unwanted pornographic email newsletters, and sites.
Complaining to employers about non existent misdemeanours.
Sending garbage emails without indication of sender.
Telephone calls at dead of night. Harassing the close
relatives of victims.

------------------------------

Subject: 3.5 The evil and illegal Troll

If anyone does anything which will interfere with the
troll's ability to cause mayhem, they also forge posts in
that persons name and internet address and libel them on
usenet. Both these are illegal.
