Got on tonight and there is a request for my birthdate??  Sorry admins but I really don't feel comfortable giving that out.  There are far too many trolls and internet nuts out there that could use it.  So in order for me to check out PL I parked a different date just so I could use PL.   Anyone else have this pop up?

LOL.  It's not PL that I'm worried about with stuff like this, it's nomes, trolls, and squid hackers that make me go eekkk!  kill it, get the Raid, or a club!

Go into your personal settings and you can pick and choose what you want other members to have access to.  I had the same conserns when the feature started displaying.

As long as it doesn't ask me for my social security number !!!!  Hey if they ask me for my phone # could I be in danger of getting called at home and fussed at for being silly out here?

This recently happened to me, and I don't see any reason why putting in my D.O.B should be a requirment on a public website.  Why would anyone want my info, except to run my name though a computer.  JMHO

I gave them my birthdate put didn't display it, when my profile when through one of it's self adjustments it popped up there, so i left it , they had better remember my birthday.  I'm not really worried about anyone having my birthday, its SSN and DL i will keep to myself, thank you.  Unless you have a name like Joe Smith, you can probably fighure out a birthdate anyway, when the thread on how many people have your name was posted, ther were only 5 of me in the US, I had only known of 2 others form having encountered my name elsewhere.

This is marketing data they are gathering. The only thing that bothers me is the intrusive pop-up and how it seems "mandatory". I have made it "go away" by making a custom "rule" in the "Adblock Plus" addin for FireFox. If you're already using FireFox and Adblock Plus and you want this rule, PM me. If you aren't--I'm not really set up to give dozens of people tutorials on Adblock.

They asked me DOB I told them I was 8 and I couldn't get back on.  Now PL is asking my zipcode.  I keep telling them its 111111.  Please stop with the stupid qiestions.

I put in a bogus DOB, a bogus zip, not my name, only thing PL had and I'm guessing still has that isn't fictious is my work email.  After I got the gold badge it got deleted from my profile so if they don't still have it they won't get it.

You should all take a peek at the Terms Of Use... They have changed significantly. You might want to have a look at the Privacy Policy too.

If I'm not mistaken, I had to fax PL a copy of my credentials and gave them my phone number at work so they could verify I'm a LEO.  How can I be an LEO and underage?  I don't mind showing anybody me credentials since that's what they're for, but my b-day?!
