You do have to be careful, but paranoia is unhealthy.

In Reply to: use caution when giving out this type of information........ posted by NATIVE on May 08, 2003 at 09:25:59:

I don't see anyone on this thread that gave out their address. sure you can identify the general location of the ISP but that could be 100's or even 1000's of customers. Unless you have a broadband connection with a static IP (try this one out) It's very difficult to find a persons actual address, which would make difficult for a thief to find you. And although I may be jealous of the fact that I have no morphs (yet), I don't think that thieves will be very interested in my normal ball pythons. There will always be dishonest people that want to take advantage of others, this is nothing new that came out with the invention of the internet, but you can't live your life with the idea that you can't meet new people and share your interests with the idea that you MIGHT get robbed.

Just my thoughts. (and notice I didn't leave my name. I'm being careful, not paranoid)

P.S. I'm from Minnesota too.
