    Default Should "Spotted" Threads be banned?

    Some members have PM'd me with concerns of privacy issues. I don't like restricting freedom to post stuff here, but this one makes sense. Please post your thoughts here and vote!

    I agree that it makes sense. As this board grows and develops we don't want "spotted" threads to become the expected norm and behaviour for its users.

    How about we post sightings of strange occurences/etc or cars that we don't know... but ban spotted threads of people who we do know and details of where they were, who they were with, etc... and discourage bol from stalking...

    I say ban 'em. If you want to let someone know you spotted them, that's what PM's are for.

    Yes, this has been brought up several times during the midnight pho adventures and I agree that they shouldn't be posted because some people just don't want everyone to know where they are all the time.

    IMO
    It is not so much the fact that who is where and at what time. It is the fact that these "SPOTTED" threads are pointless

    How so boost? Maybe you saw someone you havent seen in a while or a really nice car...just another side of the fence...

    Either way, as I said above, I dont give a @#&%, ban them, meah...

    Spotted threads are OK, but don't describe exactly where and when you saw someone. I mean if you say you see me on 6th ave everyday for lunch, that's enough information for a thief who wants my car to find it easily.

    Yeah i Agree that it is kinda pointless to post a thread everytime you see someone off this board. In the last week i have seen over a dozen people off of hear driving around. Some cars just stick out like a sore thumb!:p (kind of an oxy moron ) Spyderman,Shadowz..etc... no real need to post every time you see them.....pm are good for that.

    never.
    But better safe than sorry.

    Hahaha, I think only one person has sent you a pm saying that its annoying. And I think this certain person has a "S"
    And I think Spyderman said it best. GAY!!
