For the  people who  feel  comfortable posting their  personal  information  on the  internet that's  fine, I  recently  however had the  experience of  some users on  another  bow forum  who decided to  play  dirty  pool  and  post all  kinds  of  personal  information on  channel maliciously while  moderators  sat  back  and  watched,
    if  I am  trading  or  doing  business  with  someone then they  will by  neccessity be privy to my   personal  information  during the transaction, if  someone  wants  they  can  always  ask  for references,  plus if  you  are  simply  buying it  is customary to  withold  shipment until  payment  is received, no  more  guarantee  is  needed  in  such  case,
    if  you  want to make  your  info  public  fine,  but it  is  only  prudent today  to consider that  choice wisely,  and  you  shouldn't  have  shadows  cast on you  because  of  your  privacy choices

Guys, this is all good information. I too am not to quick to put out too much personal info. I would tend to get that out of the way in private emails. I have read constantly about bows for about six months and have learned a lot, but I am still not a knowledgable bow guru. And I do admit to buying an osage self bow and figured you just strung and shoot. I was lucky, it shot well right out of the tube. But, if it didn't I would have been at a loss. I think both have points to learn from. We are a trusting lot and all need to work with each other to avoid such problems. Happy trading>

As a newbie i know i certainly wouldn't be offend if the seller asked for a Down payment or some collateral peice. as a buyer i wold be a little hesitant of a seller asking for Full payment before i saw anything as this tranaction is a two way street, i dont want to send off 200 dollars and never see any thing returned in the mail.

Gosh, and after all the work I went and did to make my identity secure by coming up with a clever nickname!

On one of the M/L sites I frequent they don't like handles, only real names, deal suspiciously with people who won't divulge their full name and won't give them the time of day if they remain anonymous.

How can they tell if the name registered is real and not made up?

     I always wondered why a lot of people on here don't put in their location.  ???  Maybe they are in the Witness Protection Program.  :o :o;D ;D  "Hey, Vinny, lookit dis, it's Ernie da Egg! :o  you know, da guy what wuz cookin da Boss's books, and took some of da Boss's money, and then turned informant, says here, now he's cookin rocks!  Says across da bridge, in Manistique, Mi. ! Get da boys, I gotta call da Boss, and tell him we're takin a little trip!" 8)   ;D ;D
