Subject headings - and personal information...

Hello Everyone,
I would never feel comfortable giving out my street address and/or phone number especially on a ongoing basis.? I have found that simply joining a club can open a person up to an seemingly endless array of spam, not to mention compromising privacy/safety?if your message gets published and read by the public.? If you?google yourself, you may be surprised at?all the information another could find about yourself, without ever giving your approval?or permission to have this information published.??
It seems safest to give a nonspecific area, a planting zone or whatever a person feels comfortable with.? You can always contact a person off the list if you really need more specific information.?

    I also urge writers to post their location- city, state , 
country - something. Whenever I read that some thing is blooming 
'here' I stop and delete the message if no 'here' is designated.

    It is very easy in most email programs to add a signature 
block to every outgoing message. This can contain as much or little 
info as you care to reveal. Mine always has a full street address, 
phone number and climate info. Not rocket science.

        Thanks  Jim W.
