Man, Karson….......

There are so many sites out there that will do anything to get personal info.

I am leery of going to ANY site …..........except for the few I know are good …..and that I go to

Absolutely NOT knocking this suggested website of yours, but anytime a site asks, right up front, for information, I shut-er-down and run.

I hope that is not the case here.

Probably not, since you are good-to-go with it.

I’ve had an email compromised from another woodworking forum that got hacked. Now, I use a different password for everything. I use a sophisticated algorithm to generate passwords, which does not reside on my computer. Haven’t been hacked since. I have a nice pickaxe to use on the hacker that did it, when I catch the thing.
