If your email gets in the wrong hands you'll be a victim of spam and your in-box will be flooded with erectile dysfunction solicitations and a million emails from the barrister so-and-so who has $20 million to disperse from a dead king and needs you to help him do it. You'll get a percentage of the inheritance, but he'll need you to send him your credit card number first. Yeah, right.
DO NOT POST YOUR EMAIL IN PUBLIC PLACES!
On any web site (not just The Golf Space), DO NOT post your email address in your profile, the forum, blogs or comments. These are areas which can be seen by the public. Spam-Bots (automated computer robots) can scan the entire site in minutes, collect all the emails posted and add them to their mailing list.
DO NOT GIVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OUT TO PEOPLE YOU DON'T FULLY TRUST!
If someone mails you on a web site like this, and immediately starts asking your for your email address that is a RED FLAG. They want your email so they can spam you or sell your email to spammers! Beware!
