I've been poking around in some active posters' profiles and I am feeling compelled to try to get the word out that VISITOR MESSAGES within your profile are often "public," at least to other members of this forum. As I've been poking around, I've noticed Visitor Messages that included email addresses, cell phone numbers, prospective cadets' real names and other information that surely the person sending the message THOUGHT was being sent in the PRIVATE MESSAGE area. Please note that VISITOR MESSAGES are only private with certain settings selected. If you intend to send a PRIVATE MESSAGE, make sure you are using the PRIVATE MESSAGE area of the forum. Just my 2 cents' worth of advice for today.
