Post subject:  Hello & About security

It is a very dangerous thing - especially for females - to use real names anywhere on the WWW.
So my name is an abbreviation.

The very first thing my Manager told me on joining our company was give out no real information about yourself - nowhere is safe in the "Cyberbog" as everyone here calls it.
With the smallest of information about you, it is really amazing what a stalker or financial criminal can dig up.

I know that this very WebHost was actually broken into recently.

So, I was surprised to find the very strong instruction to use full names - especially on a service mainly for young students half of who are young females. ( there is a stalker program which lists specifically female names in many languages with age ranges as targets ) :twisted:
So, I had a lot of trouble signing up here because of this ( it looks for a space in the name), but as this program ranks highly in our Company, here I am :-)

Unfortunately, my first attempt at properly installing Uberstudent has failed. :-{
I will post a help request next and try to get it fixed before my boss finds out! :-)

A strong encouragement but you choose for whatever are your own reasons, no questions asked. I trust users to make the best choice for themselves. :-)
