Hey, there, Bob ... here's a 'what if' I know you've seen in your prior life -g-

What if the Chairman him/herself posts sensitive, real-life contact information and then has the power to delete the selected 'victim's' replies?

Further complicated with the "five deleted posts and yer out" theory ...

For example, for those here who may not have encountered this in the past.

Let's say a 'thread head' ... or "Chairman," in your IHUB PC terms <g> decides to make an aggressive attempt to 'drive a poster away' from not only his thread, but the site itself.

This Chairman has knowledge of the poster who he doesn't care for in personal info terms -- real name, address, phone numbers, etc.

So, sets up a thread and possibly using other account names (yep -- that happened even on SI -- it's not just a Yahoo! phenom) ... reveals such information to all of Cyberspace. Inviting harassment not in simple investing board 'flaming' capacity, but in real life stalking/intimidation terms.

I'm sure you can imagine potential consequences for the site itself .. and its 'administrators.'

I think that's lawsuit material, myself ...

Your and Matt's comments?
