Stalked, How do I remove Real Name? on 08/01/2010 08:06:22 MDT Print View

A stalker from another forum is using my BPL profile to harass me.

Is their anyway to remove my Real Name info and any pictures?

Go to My Account, Change My Billing Address, and put whatever you want under your Primary address (and name) and that will change what the public can see. Leave you real name and address under the mailing section and you'll get your packages. As far as how you can remove pictures, perhaps you can go into the post where you posted them and edit them out. I agree though, this is a poor function of the BPL forums as real names should definitely be an option without gaming the system to avoid it.

This is something I really hate about BPL; it's hard enough to preserve privacy on the internet when not using your real name!

I hadn't realized that I didn't have to change the billing address back when ordering something; that's good to know, Jolly Green Giant!

It's also a good idea occasionally to google both your real name and your email address, just to make sure you haven't let something slip!
