Sharing of personal information...

Hello 

I am sorry to post again about this topic. I know it has had a marmite affect towards the forum & me. 

We closed the twitter thread down a few months back due to some issues with adding people and the security of members being comprimised. The whole thread has now been deleted so that no one can gain access to the handles that had been shared. I also had a thread open about reviewers that blog, where handles could be shared. This one has also been removed. 

At this point we did not remove handles from bios.

However we have now started to do this. So you may notice it has disappeared, along with any other social media profile links - That was me. Do not re-add these I will have to remove it again adding (REMOVED BY MODERATOR) . If you still have your links in your bio or have re-added it please do remove it. 

This is not a complete change, we are just putting Rule no2 in play: 

<h3 style="max-width: 100%; margin: 0px 0px 0.17em; padding: 0px; font-size: 16.62px; font-weight: 400; color: rgb(201, 42, 73); line-height: 1.231em; font-family: " segoe="" ui",="" segoeui,="" helveticaneue-light,="" "helvetica="" neue="" light",="" neue",="" sans-serif;"=""> 2. No sharing personal contact details

I am aware this becomes a grey area when it comes to bloggers. We feel at the moment this is not an issue as bloggers are out in the social world as their alter egos, so far we have not had issues with this. Plus why wouldn't we want you to have access to great sexual advice and help!

My apologies to anyone this may upset or annoy and I understand the blog posts etc etc can link up to people's social media accounts, so there is no getting away from it completely. However after receiving feedback about people's safety (to the point of removing their community account) and looking at arguments that were had due to allowing the sharing of such details we have had no choice but no step in on this. We want you to feel safe in this environment.

Thank you all for your understanding & I hope you can see why we have had to act on rule number two.
