Privacy/Security tips & faqs for DC members

Especially helpful for new sign-ups.
I will start. If others can contribute, we'd all be grateful.

1. Get to know us from our postings.
2. Never click a link, unless you're more than 110% sure of it.

Our site's official privacy policies are a tiny half of the issue. The bigger half is how we responsibly engage with this fun community, with each keystroke. Be crazy, but be safe, everyone!

3. Never confess that you like instant ramen.

That is like, a dead giveaway to the only possible person in the world, and a ripe online target.

Step 1 is confession.

In all seriousness, some good basic pointers about privacy and security practices here at DC would be helpful. Not that I'd like to steal and assume the identity of BD3K.

It's okay BigD. I was hooked on Ramen in university and I have been ramen free for about 25 years now! You too can overcome this! Actually I heard that your religion is actually a cult. Maybe we have to do a rescue here?

All religions start as cults. The Roman's though Jesus was a flash in the pan. Look at Utah! The whole state fell for a drunken frat boy prank a while back and now there is a college!!!

BYU at Provo is an excellent institution. I'm sure most of its newly adult, starving students, as well as its overseas graduates, are discovering the gazillion different brands, flavors, and ways to cook ramen. The plastic package is a ritual of initiation. Humanity is the cult.

4. Trust your instincts. If something doesn't look right, ask one of our moderators for help or advice.

LOL, mollyanne!

One of the best selling brands of instant ramen is "Charumera." Its a japanization of "chirimia," an oboe-like instrument introduced to Asia and the Americas by Portuguese and Spanish Christian missionaries. The instrument was usurped by ramen street vendors, much like the signature melodies of neighborhood ice cream trucks, another cult that preys on the sweet tooth of children.

Today, most of Asia travels by rail and subways. "Noodles in Broth" booths outnumber all other fastfood at stations by a factor of 10. McDonald's, another cult, is like a small time bit player compared to the church of instant ramen.

I repeat #3, never confess, like bigdaddy3k did, that you messily slurp your noodles into a flying frenzy. You'll become an easy online target.
