I m sure others would agree with me that on the OG forum profile page, every , member should be required to have their email address when joining when this forum group.
The folks who do not have a email listed can post what ever they want.
These members post in the for sale or wanted topics and assume that their email address is listed there when is not.
Now as a person who wants to reply we cannot as there is no email address and we can post a reply in these post as per the rules, which I understand because of the bumping (which is a good rule to follow).

Just a suggestion.

I would like to see a published e-mail address as a requirement for Forum membership.

I’m very happy for you. But, I happen to be in the computer security field. Though, nothing is safe...behind a curtain is better then nothing...

if you want your underwear exposed go right ahead. Add your email link to every post. If OGR makes that change. i’m Out of here.

Seems like a lot of people are worried about security as I m always careful on what I open, just learn to right click on the emails address that you are not aware of and see if it is a spam email. 

Never had a problem with any forum members.

Maybe make it so that only members can look at your profile page with the email.

It is already that way now, i.e. only signed up members are able to view other members profiles. Thus, if any member elects NOT to list his or her eMail address, nor any other "interesting" information, then so be it!

So I guess that all of the members who will not put their email address on their profile page, never sells asnything or buys anything or uses the wanted post.

You obviously hit the nail on the head!

Maybe just make it so that if you post a item for sale or a wanted to buy that there is a requirement to have a email address listed

Well, if posters trying to sell stuff do NOT include an eMail address in their "profile", then they sure will not be selling much of anything, will they?

An email address IS REQUIRED in order to register as a member here! However, whether the member chooses to make that address PUBLIC is quite another matter. Each member has that choice here and many choose NOT to make their email address public.

Frankly, given the lack of privacy on the internet, I don't blame them.

THREAD CLOSED.
