OH, I am glad to find this thread, as i too, had same complaint. I bet we are not the only people who had heart attacks when we looked at our OWN profile pages. To whom IS this visible, the mods? the website builders?
I also had NO IDEA my full name was on my profile, i see my page has had 79 views or something, thanks a lot. what an odd thing. I have since changed my privacy settings, and using a fake name, but, why would a website do this? Or, is my full name, on my profile, only posted there for *me* to see it? Or what's up with that?
ONE SIMPLE FIX to stop members from having heart attacks that their location and name, etc, are being posted on a website about finances,
would be if the site admins would do this:
ON the privacy settings, make it clear THERE, riiiiight there, that the IP address is NOT visible, and that you just post it on our profile pages as kind of a joke to scare us.
Or, right above the IP addresses, big red letters: "only YOU can see this IP address, we just posted your IP address on your profile, in case you yourself did not know where you are." or something.
