    Default Signatures with telephone numbers


    Do yo find it a good behavior to post with signatures of personal numbers while using an international forum. Or is it a means of advertising telephone numbers.
    Do all members here have phone numbers, should they give it at the end of their messages or keep privacy as required, and use forum as means of communication with others.
    Give your opinion.

    In my view people are free to express themselves

    There is a lot of freedom of writing about whatever anybody has on satellite issues, and there is also a channel to follow for commercial advertising.
    So we should separate the two, in that freedom of speech has nothing to do with my advertising a private phone line, which i could have used without the forum to call each and everyone reading my post.
    I do find it an invasion of privacy rules, and phone numbers being private can easily be passed to those willing on pms.
    Like why should I have your number in a forum when I didn't ask for it? Plus I can easily communicate to you on the same media - forum. If you have some free service to offer why not wait for one to ask for your number, like we are still looking for free service but their numbers cant be found anywhere on net.
    most numbers on net are pay services, pse don't confuse the two.

    I think only Business Members will do this on ever forum but users , hobbiers , visitors won't show their private phone numbers.My opinion , I will never show my phone number in public forums but will welcomely give my phone number to my friends in private , PM.



    Thx.
