Might I suggest folks check the Community tab on the blue bar? Click social groups and create a dedicated group where you can post to your heart's content. Those are a bit more private.

That's a good idea Alix, but it's not something that is easy to notice. I joined the green one and there is hardly any conversation there. Well, I assume so, I haven't looked in a while. I think I get email notifications of new posts there.

I was looking for that link...couldn't find it.
Then it dawned on me ...
I prefer the v1 format. The Community link isn't there. At least I can't find it.
I switched to v3 format and there it is!

The older skins are not supported officially anymore and are not updated. New features with the forum may not make the cut.

Social groups can help but, again, if scummy people want it they will just create an account and get it.

Security through obscurity is no security at all.

One more caution is never, ever, expect anything on the Internet to be truly private. We here at DC do our best to maintain your privacy on site, but we can not control the packets in route. We can not control any software on your system, including anything that could monitor your doings and send them off elsewhere.

The best advice I can give anyone is something Kathleen's young cousin said once:
Never put anything in your diary you don't want to see in court.

If you don't want everyone on the Internet to see something don't put it anywhere on the Internet.

There is no Community tab in v. 1.0 but the Social Groups menu item is under the Quick Links drop down menu.

I know....I reckon I am just slow to change some things....The older format is easier on my old eyes too.

We have an old adage or saying: Never put anything in writing that can be brought to court ... Same as F.Z. mentioned a few posts above.

Good advice and thanks for posting it.

Like Steve, I am a member of a Professional Interntl. Wine Forum via membership also ... There are subtle differences between professional forums and those with a good group of serious minded people with a specific interest and much lesser in numbers, than the thousands of browsers in same "space" ...

Have lovely August.

M.C.
