I'm pretty sure there was language somewhere about we will not sell your e-mail, etc. etc. when people signed up on F.com originally. I doubt most of them would care to get unsolicited e-mails from a third party -- no matter how "related" the third party believes the products or services might be -- as a result of having signed up on Forumosa. There is certainly no opt-in box for receiving communications from third parties about products or services.

Then Gus should've given it some thought! :lol:

I'm watching Chiquita:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper

Apology now received, it seems that the normally so reliable e-mail system just failed to send my original reply.
Why does that *always* happen in this kind of incident ? :wink:

I didn't sign up here to have someone waltz off with my details. If an admin departs, they should leave all that stuff behind :2cents:.

Why not give feedback here? It's my (and presumably others) details that are being compromised.
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

Hi, anyone with the priviledges to use the "EMail" function in the Forums (which is almost the same as sending a PM) can send messages to your email address.
Whatever data Anthony (aka maoman, now on Taiwanease.com) and Gus (aka Goose Egg, owner of Forumosa.com) share(d) is up to them.
I suggest you contact them directly at admin@taiwanease.com and admin@forumosa.com if you have concerns about this.
