It seems of late that our members have been taking some unorthodox means of violating our Global Policies in a quest to share Personal Contact Information.
Our Global Policies are very clear on this matter:
Private and Confidential Information: Outside of the ChristianBlog.Com "Personal Contact Information" system we do not allow the publishing of people's private and confidential information, either your own or that of others. TO PROTECT OUR USERS: ANY TRANSMISSION OR PUBLICATION OF ANY EMAIL ADDRESSES, PHONE NUMBERS, PHYSICAL OR MAILING ADDRESSES, INSTANT MESSENGER USER NAMES, AND/OR OTHER 'methods of contact' ANYWHERE WITHIN OUR WEBSITE WILL BE CONSIDERED A VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY. SAID VIOLATION MAY RESULT IN TERMINATION OF SAID USER ACCOUNT WITHOUT NOTIFICATION AND WITHOUT REFUND, IF APPLICABLE. ChristianBlog.Com has a zero-tolerance policy for the publication of private and confidential information.
What this means is that if you are caught sharing "Personal Contact Information" your account is in violation of our Global Policies and subject to termination.
What this means is that we do not allow you to share your email address, phone number, instant messages, physical/mailing address, or any other "methods of contact" or else your account will be subject to termination.
Allow us to expand on the "methods of contact" clause. We include (but not limited to) within the definition of "methods of contact" sharing HOW to get your OR OTHERS MEMBERS Personal Contact Information either here at ChristianBlog.Com or via other methods.
Other methods may include telling somebody how to get another members Personal Contact Information from another website.
Other methods may include telling somebody how to get another members Personal Contact Information from another member who has it.
Other methods may include telling somebody how to get another members Personal Contact Information from ANY METHOD.
In other words: If you do not have access to the Personal Contact Information System, and the other person does not have access to the Personal Contact Information System, and you both do not use it to share Personal Contact Information with each other, than you are in violation of our Global Policies and your account is subject to termination.
Our automated monitor system has been working very hard these last few weeks and we felt it was time to address this issue.
We are no longer going to allow members to push the edges of our Global Policies concerning the sharing of Personal Contact Information.
Simple put: If we discover any member using ANY TECHNIQUE other than using our Personal Contact Information System to share said Personal Contact Information (either theirs or anybody elses) your account will be subject to termination.
We expect our members to abide by our Global Policies. Failure to do so is your responsibility not ours. Being a member if ChristianBlog.Com is a privilege, not a right, so please adhere to and honor our policies.
