I actually chose to join here as opposed to other conspiracy-related communities because I trusted the site owner(s) more and thought it was a more reasonable and honest website. And I still think it is.

HOWEVER... don't you think asking for people's address and full name and all that on sign up is a bit unnecessary, particularly given the sensitive nature of what might be discussed?

Cheers,

Wave

Only you, can agree to the "terms of use" that you checked on your application when you registered.

Oh, you mean you need to know that much about who someone is before their acceptance of the Terms of Use is valid? or?

Did you actually read the terms of use, or just check the box, like when you download any program you install? If you read it, I think its self explanitory why you have this. You also have the option of unregistering your account anytime.

Regardless, welcome to the blackvault, enjoy posting, we need new good subjects and input. You are welcome here by all of us. :clap:

Hello,

Actually, your address is an optional field... and your name, well, I obviously promote to not shield your identity, but you're more than welcome to put John Smith 🙂 Nothing stops that.

I am being watched by some men dressed in all black. They must have gotten my information from John. Laugh
