As long as you are logged in then the 'Like' button on the bottom right of the post should be replaced by an 'Edit' button.

I think unless you are a paid member there is a 24 hour time window in which to Edit/Remove.

If that's true, it's at odds with the the moderator post just put up saying "If you posted it, you can modify it."

I used mind control on a person at an auction.
They now do my bidding.

Hi Mike,

I will remove said post as requested and mentioned on the sticky thread I created, though in this case I will remove the whole thread. (Despite making the post earlier I didn’t get the chance until now).

As also mentioned, this will not stop you receiving junk mail and the page can still be viewed through Google via it’s saved pages for a few months before it updates itself.

Apologies if this sounds like a two fingered response to your request, it’s not my intention, just trying to make people aware of the problems posting personal data online.

I was not aware of this.

It looks like Morgan beat me to it re the edit.

Never post your email address on any forum.

The spammers have automated bots trawling all forums looking for email addresses to add to their own lists and to also sell on.

Nothing any forum can do to stop this.

And if you have to then use somethingthat has to be read & underslood like
myaccount-at-whatisp-which is a CO-omercial domain in Scotland so ends with UK
or
starts with myaccout ends with UK and has whatisp in the middle
You just have to make it a non recogniseable format

Down side is that only works for automated data collection and won't work against impoverished people in the 3rd world who actually read posts looking for emails & phone numbers
The other thing that works is to make a throw away account at one of the free email hosts
Something like [email protected]
then after you have finished with it delete the email account .

You can get masking email addresses for your account, you basically give another email address which pings the mail to your actual email address, it also helps protect you from hackers.

Many thanks for your help folks. Much appreciated. My Brit biking (and all biking for that matter) are behind me now. Even my "old" car had to go as "new" spares didn't match up to the OEM standards any more, to such a point that I had little confidence in the safety of some of the items (bearings with no grease and poor welds on suspension parts!!!). When sent a "new" caliper that was rusty and bashed, I called time on it. I still love to see and hear old British vehicles so keep up the good work folks. All the best, Mike
