    Hi guys..... I have recently had a young 15 year old boy add me to msn..... he found my email o n this site when he was browsing the net....... i have told him he is too young to be looking on these forums and that he should not of added me.... and especially not to talk about sex....... is there any way that we can make the forum private so that people like this young boy cannot read the posts and threads we have written?.... i have found it quite a concern....... this young lad is no longer on my friends list on msn.... but it does not stop him from coming back on here and adding anyone else...... any way we can make the forums private?

    That is quite shocking. I had something similar happen to me a while back. Not from here though. It was a dating site and he was posing as someone a lot older and using pictures that were not his. I blocked/deleted him rather quickly and reported him to the site.

    Rouge is spot on there, not matter what your always going to have people visit the forums that really shouldn't. However by keeping your MSN private and only giving it out to select people you should stop this from happening ever again. For what it's worth there's probably many 15/16 year old's out there that are mature enough to use this forum, unfortunately they prove a rarity and most aren't adult enough to meet the proper etiquette.

    Ooo, when are we getting a forum make over then? Just curious as I seem to struggle with multiple quotations some times just single quotes. I do understand why there is no edit function and why it would be a bad idea to implement.

    I was askin for advice actually so people can prevent things like this happening to them and if u look through the forum u will find the thread 'MSN addys' an email address isnt exactly private as none of my details are on there...... I also put my Addy on the thread so i could get to know some of the people i talk to on here.........

    I have to agree with Headsouth there, if you want to give out your email address to people then do so through LH directly rather than a public forum as your always going to get problems that way. The way you've worded the thread does make it sound like your blaming LH rather than seeking advice as you did ask if they could alter the forum viewing rights.

    All in all I'm sure you'll have learnt your lesson about openly posting an email address and will avoid doing so in the future so no harm done.

    By through LH directly I mean asking a staff member to pass it on just in case that wasn't clear.

    *

    I know my self when i first tried to go onto LH on my mobile i had to call orange to get the restrictions off

    Its acctually quite shocking that the boys parents have no restrictions on there pc for such sites to be entered by him, i have posted my email on that thread but only accept people who i had been chatting for a while to on here long with a message on request, just an idea for you pretty blue eyes in future.

    as has been said several times LH staff are incredibly busy so may not have the time.

    i have a spam/ fake e mail for the site. if i dont like someone i block them

    lovehoney will have the technology to ban certain IP adresses from the forums, so member details or even the IP adress will be easy to get and block.

    Yes but it's still important to understand the risks of posting your address online. Not to mention it's hardly impossible to change your IP address but for the target demographic age it would probably do.

    I know, don't get me wrong I wasn't blaming you or anything. I wasn't at all trying to be mean as I'm a nice guy really, as long as it's sorted now. :)

    To be honest, I'd rather a 15 year old be reading threads on this forum than some of the other dodgy forums out there! There's a much more respectful and balanced feeling around here than some places! I know it is cause for concern but as has been said, keep private details to yourself and to avoid it happening to you. As for whether he should have access to sites like this - that's his parent's responsibility.

    Totally with you AdnaW. Theres only so much you can do and it's not like LH is a dark underground porn site. Most people on these forums seem fairly cool. Everyone just has to be responsible for their own details etc. Just concentrate on keeping yourselves safe. Theres bound to be a few people who probably shouldn't be on here or people misusing computers etc but the most we can do is be as responsible as we can. Like LH said earlier, this boy could not be a young boy atall and could be doing a bit of role play? It's always hard to know whether someone is who they say they are on computers. x MC x
