    Sorry BGs, I know this shouldn't really be here, but I think people need to see it and take action where necessary.

    Catz and I have just found out entirely by chance that the Noize Makes Enemies website - http://noizemakesenemies.ning.com/ - is showing some people's personal information - including email addresses, telephone numbers and postal addresses to anyone who looks at your profile on the site.

    I registered for the site to enter competitions they were running after one was posted here and I know other MSErs have done the same - I recognise a few names on there and have PMed some people.

    It's possible to delete your phone number and postal address, but I can't see a way of making the profiles private and there are things like marital status and sexual orientation that can't be removed from your profile. For that reason I've deleted my profile from the site and my details are no longer viewable.

    Please, if you have registered for the Noize Makes Enemies website check what information's in your profile and make sure that anything you have entered you are happy to be freely available to anyone, and if not take action.

  • :eek::eek: That's really bad!!! So glad I'm not registered with them.

    I've spotted someone off Loquax on there....are you registered on there to post this message on there too or shall I do it? I'll PM the person I've noticed to warn them anyway.

    I'm registered on loquax but don't really use it enough to know where would be best to post this, so if you could post this over there that would be great missgiddypants.

    Thanks for the warning -

    I have reduced my info to the minimum - they know I am from the UK and married, but after men! :rotfl:

    OMG, actual addresses etc!
    (Had to go and check I hadn't registered-thank God I hadn't, and had to have a nose while I was there!)
    I think perhaps someone who's registered could post warnings on the forums in case other users aren't aware?
    Has anyone contacted the site owners to ask whether they intended such personal information to be so freely available?
    Quite scary really.

    thanks tt & barnabysue, am going to wait till the forms up, then can check it, don't want to be emailing the ed again all the time, have some new puzzlers ready but they're not online yet either, so will wait for them as well.
    please be a responsible pet owner & spay/neuter your pets, too many strays & not enough homes for them sadly. k2u58ioz4c8e.png

    I deleted my profile but when I relogged back in to check, it's defaulted back to the original details. How do I change them completely or even delete my account? :mad:

    Soozy seemed to think, that's a cache thing, if you delete your cache, you'll see the details have gone :) I went on ie to check Soozy details and they had gone even though I could still see them in FF :)
