My last name is pretty uncommon. I think two people know it on here. I'm not sure.

I don't give out my phone number because 1) My mom would kill me and 2) You can do a reverse search using a phone number and find an address. I think I'm actually blocked from that, but it is possible using different services probably.

Address, definitely not. The farthest I go is Nassau County, south shore.

I think I would give out my cell phone number to certain people, but I'm not a phone person so it would mainly be used for texting if anything

I will do a general location but not my house number or anything and i wouldnt do my phone number unless my dad said I could or if I needed to for a game for something. i'm pretty comfortabole with giving out my last name because my last name has 2 people in the srea and probably like 1000's over all of the United States. So i guess I'm pretty comforatable with giving out informationa bout my self online...........

Most people know my real name, most of my freinds know my last name.

Only one TFSer has my cell number, nobody has my home number.

I never give my exact location out on the Forum although I have shown someone on TFS where I live. And about 5 people have my home address, like Doug this is very safely gaurded.

I have never posted pictures of my children and nobody on TFS has seen them.

I am very close to a few people on here and I am confident in them and therefore would tell them anything they wanted to know

And Intox, your real name is displayed when you e-mail me

I have given out my email addy to a few people. I'll give that to people I know and have chatted to a bit. I'll tell people the city i live in and my last name prob comes up when I add friends but apart from that.... Oh! I lie - I have given one TFSer my mobile number. (But I think it's changed since then so I don't know if they have my new one!) Depending on how well I feel I know the person i'm chatting to depends on how much information I give out...

I wont give out a phone number anymore to anyone.
My last name is Howard and I live in Winchester.
My address? Only if you ask really nice and I know you really well.

Very wary indeed.
I had some problems once, stemming from a troll infested dump - but let's not talk about that.

When I joined here, I told people absolutely nothing about me - even though deep down I wished I could - due to thatr experience. It's a sign that I know this place is different that I'm prepared to post pics of myself. No way would I usually do that - and even ones that have raised the odd laugh in Tracy's chat thread

Anyway - my friends on here obviously know my last name through the friend requests, but I probably wouldn't usually volunteer that.
Home town - again I don't publicise that, though it's not exactly a secret on here I may put it in my profile soon.
Home number - noooo way. One person on here knows that, but she is a good friend offline anyway.
Address - no way on earth. Again, one person knows it, but she's been there and made fun of my record collection - so it's all good
Cellphone - not exactly something I'd tell just anyone

All of these though, if I get to know someone well enough, as a good friend - that's fair enough.
