I got a couple of emails from non-members and couldn't figure out for the life of me what was going on, until Spam solved the mystery, thankfully. Since my email was changed to hide it from public view, I haven't received any more mystery emails.

It's a bit disconcerting to have some stranger email you out of the blue regarding something you posted on snopes. As RangerDog mentioned, a snopester would normally send a PM.

I, too, have gotten unsolicited emails from non-snopesters about topics posted on snopes. It made me a little uneasy.

And then I stopped making my email available and it stopped.

I tried this with my own screen name, just because I was curious. All but one of the links referenced either the board or Dark Dan's Wiki site. The one exception, though, was a post on another message board of which I'm not a member. It was dated 2003 and referenced a post I'd made on this board about the 'Hurricane Isabel' picture when it showed up here. As it turns out from the snopes article, my guess about the origins of the picture was wrong (surprise, surprise)... I was just shocked to see a post I'd made here show up somewhere else.

Now if everyone will excuse me, I'm going to go hide under a rock...

Wah, no one emails me... But a year or two ago, I got an email from a former troll saying "I see you run that wiki... Can you answer a few questions for my investigation? 1) snopes is run by the government. Which party are they? 2) snopes has been giving out false information and the FBI has been investigating them..." Questions three to whatever were basically the same tin-foil hat crap. It was pretty strange.

A long time ago, I posted in a Disney World thread that I owned a particular stuffed animal from a ride that is now shut down. Someone sent me an email (quite rudely) asking how much I would take for it. They didn't even bother to include a name, Snopes-handle or otherwise. Very tacky.

It's pretty cowardly not to identify yourself in an email, even if to say "I was lurking on this message board and wanted to comment on what you wrote..."

It's like the people on MySpace who want to friend me but don't identify themselves or give me a reason why I should be their "friend". [Razz]

Interesting - I think about selling stuff online from time to time, but haven't yet. Maybe I shouldn't bother then.

In my case, the person did not identify themselves or the ULMB post they were writing in reference to. Usually I disregard unsolicited emails, but this person offered to buy something I'd mentioned owning - but had not placed for sale anywhere. Eventually I figured out the person was referencing something from snopes. I thought it was rude and a little creepy to neither identify himself nor how he got my information - and quite rude to offer to buy something from me that I'd mentioned on the ULMB but had not advertised for sale.

Plus, having thought my email was set to "hidden/members only", I was also concerned someone might have hacked into my account.

Yeah, I see it as you do, but then you and I (and a few of our peers) post using our real names, which I think means we don't mind being "out there" as much our comrades who choose to post using aliases apparently do.

There was a previous episode of outsiders mining the snopes profiles for e-mail addresses. It was even discussed at length in several threads. I described two instances that happened to me. In one, a poster who told me he had forgotten his password asked me to post his inflammatory diatribe to a thread in which I had participated. I later learned that the individual was well known around here and had been banned for previous bad behavior.

In another, someone began sending me spam using my snopes name in the salutation. I thought I had started a thread about this one, but my searches for it have produced nothing.

What I do know is that these and several other incidents prompted snopes to change how profiles are viewed.

Ryda, did you reply to your anonymous e-mailer? Oh, wait. You said "completely random person." Same thing, I guess.

Nick and Bonnie, I've only registered on a few sites, but on the first one I put my complete real name in my profile. I had a problem with a real pain-in-the-neck member on a board I moderate, and he posted my complete name, along with threatening messages, on two of his sites. A person registered on "my" site for the sole purpose of PMing me with that information. The messages were posted to "My Real Name" aka "My Usual Screen Name." She had Googled my usual screen name and found me. If not for her concern, I would never have known it because I had stopped visiting the pain's site after I heard from quite a few people that he was dangerous and had actually gone to Vegas to stalk one woman. I complained to Tripod, the messages were removed, and he was banned (not by Tripod, by me), but still. . . It was rather unnerving. The only way he could have found out my name was to Google the screen name I usually use. I did that at the time and up popped the profile page with my name. That site is now defunct, and the page no longer appears, unless it is archived on archive.org. Anyway, that could explain why some of us might be a little skittish about using our full name. There are too many weirdos out there in cyberland, and some of them can find you.

I was still surprised to learn how easy it is for a non-snopester to locate snopesters' e-addresses, though. The above took place so long ago that I had forgotten about it.

I wouldn't have had a problem with it had the email not been so abrupt and demanding. I post knowing the ULMB is an archived site and most of the information will show up on Google. My complaint has more to do with the particular message I received than the fact that the person was able to contact me.

I don't care whether you're a registered member or not, emailing a person with a slightly less eloquent version of "GIB TOY NOW!" without bothering to even attach any form of contact information is not going to impress me. Especially when the post the idiot apparently saw noted what a treasured souvinir that particular toy was to me. Jerk.

I'm sorry that you had that experience. Examples such as yours get to why I allowed in my response to Nick that those of you who prefer to post under aliases probably generally do so in an attempt to preserve privacy. At the same time, for some individuals there are valid reasons for posting using one's real name.

In any event, like Nick, I've had some favorable feedback from "outsiders," including a reporter who contacted me recently about something I'd posted here a while ago.

Ooh, the penguin! Thank you so much, Signora. The problem is, there's no way for me to use it as my message icon, unless snopes has it included in the bundle of message icons. That's what I was missing. [Smile] But, he is a cutie, isn't he?

For me, being a member and posting on a forum means that I'm having a discussion with a huge, but known, even if somewhat vaguely, group of people that I'm fond of for the most part. I realize there are people outside the group that can read my, and everyone else's, posts, but I feel that for these non-members I am basically a read only file.

Yeah, maybe if I didn't live alone, or wasn't older and feeling more vulnerable, or publicly promoting myself, I wouldn't mind it if someone gets my email address that I think is not able to get my email address, and writes to me, maybe then, yeah, maybe it'd be ok. Maybe I'd welcome the email. After all, I'm only one of several thousand Bonnie Taylors on the planet. What are the chances they could actually find me, if they wanted to? Because, by the same token that these people are even reading snopes, is assurance to me they are good-natured and harmless people. I should just welcome them all into my inbox by including my name and email address in my sigline!

Ok, let's get real, shall we? I do live alone. I'm older and feeling more vulnerable than I did when I was younger. I AM unique. Just having my first name in an online public profile freaks me.

Those of you that have big ole huge security nets may wonder why those of us with smaller securenets get squicked out when we receive an anonymous email from a stranger out of the blue, but it's not really that hard to understand, is it?

My apologies to Bonnie for using your name as an example. It's a good common name (googling on it reaps 90,200 hits) and you're involved in this discussion. My purpose wasn't to point solely to you.

Well, just in case there's some confusion about it, I didn't advocate that everyone use his or her name real when posting. That practice works for some folks and it obviously doesn't work for others. It's nice, though, that we have choices about how we identify ourselves here.

(And I know you were simply illustrating a point, tagurit, so I don't mind being singled out as it were, but I'll also note that the other information I share about myself here keeps me a least a little distinctive from the other 90,199 Bonnie Taylors one runs into.)

There's the other side of the story, also. The last time many of us made any changes to our profiles dealing with our email addresses, we had set it so our email addresses were not publicly seen. Receiving anonymous emails from non-members is like locking your door at night and having some stranger open it and come on in.

This thread makes me a bit nervous. Since, snopes policy says that I have to put my first name and initital, and correct location in my profile, it's very easy to find me using my profile. I'm going to change my location to be a little more ambigious, if that's ok with the mods.
