askmaxim, I want to welcome you personally to WebDeveloper.com. I am the Online Community Manager, so if you have any questions or problems concerning the forum itself, please feel free to use the Contact Us link (page bottom). My username is JPnyc on all the forums.
Some important warnings, DO NOT post advertisements, DO NOT post your REAL NAME or EMAIL, and DO NOT post ANYTHING to the forum that you do not want search engines to find, and DO NOT post CONTACT INFO of any kind. Thank you
Yep, they're for your safety and so we don't have to keep answering requests to remove contact information ... etc. In addition, many people try to use their posts for search engine rankings, so yes, it is for exactly as you read.
