a note on our astrology group's security
I wanted to write a bit about my decision to delete a few postings. I inquired about the posting links and left them up for few weeks then I felt because I did not get a response from the poster I was leary about the links she posted.(make sense?)
Basically it was for "free readings" and it linked out of CM. I am all for free stuff yet I also see it as a ploy and marketing scam. (as if CM doesn't have them ..ha ha)
I just wanted to post that if you do want to link us all out of CM or even within CM to a group you like or own etc-- feel free to ask or at least describe give a referral-- not just " this is great " .. but reference yourself as to who you are even just to say hi-- after all why would I or anyone else believe you if you never introduce yourself to any of us here-- especially if a reference a name a company name etc or who runs the website as there are quite a few scams out there I do not want any of us to fall prey to scams or problems that could damage our computers or who knows what. As for me I stick to personal referrals when it comes to astrology and after reading loads of books I can tell you names of who I like (people I have actually met as well as their websites etc. Yet I wouldn't outright trust a simple link when I have no idea about the person who posted it and I get no response when I ask.
Any thoughts on this? was I too harsh?
