Level 22: Superhuman

People posting their own personal details

Can we get the guidelines (not that some people actually read them)  to include something about not posting personal phone numbers or account numbers, and addresses in public forums?


I know it's common sense, but people see the Logo, and don't think beyond that.

Re: People posting their own personal details

Considering this is being pushed more and more as an official support site, I would wonder if its possible to automatically blank out any series of 10 or 13 digit numbers as a start. Full names and addresses might be hard but eh blocking 10 and 13 digit numbers should fix the issue quick smart Smiley Wink
