a "tip" to add to my success story
- I've been reminded by some reactions to my success story about not
giving up (which I sent yesterday) of a -VERY- important point....
Many people change email addresses often, and if you made postings and
someone wants to connect to your old address, it will be a problem....
I always advise people to post a "reply" message to message board
postings they made (not just a new message, which will not be threaded
in the archives), stating their new email address.
For mailing lists, a message of something like "for the archives, my new
email address is __ searching ____. " (don't just send a general "here's
my new email" message - again it wont' get picked up if someone does a
search on the surname/place from the archives)
And , while I'm at it, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give out your address or
phone/fax number in an email or posting -- you'd be surprised at how
many rotten people are out there and have equipment to find those things
and steal identies etc. (I've noticed some of you have your home
address/phone or business address/phone in your signature line --- NOT a
Hope this things help someone.....
