DO NOT do the above for any online message board (forum or community). I not so recently joined an online community concerning web hosting as I had a really bad experience with a provider. I am not talking about a small mishap. I mean the provider was so bad that when I wrote about them they even terminated my account. No one really questioned my bad experience as much as they question my good experience. Being relieved that I finally found a web host who appears to be doing great I followed up with a positive review. OMG! You'd think I had stolen someone's firstborn child. Because the amount of hate I got for writing a positive review was unexpected. But that is not what surprised me the most. Now, this particular forum (not here) is demanding I submit my full name, address, and phone number. Seriously?! I have never joined an online community that demanded that I show proof of who I am. So we have gone from people acting as if I had stolen someone's firstborn child, to acting as if I wanted to adopt one. Well, because I dare question them, now they want a copy of our driver's license too. All this because I dare join an online message board and write a review. I told them they could delete my account for all I care. What I find troubling is they "claim" people are OK with complying with this "standard" request. Like, seriously?! This has ID Theft written all over it. It is not as if I am purchasing any product or services from them either. All I did was join a forum and post a review.
