One of my favorite forums
won’t let me post.
Why?
Because it now requires more user information.
Information like birth date
(including month and day)
and address.

For an online forum.

I’ll likely make up something
(make myself 100 years old)
but it bothers me.
They don’t NEED that information.
Why do they ask it?

It especially irritates me
that they’re holding my account hostage
until I supply it.

Having
users, readers, customers
is a privilege.
Don’t abuse it
or you’ll lose them.
They have choice.
