How can I control my privacy/someone is stalking me what can be done?

First, no one should post personal information they are not comfortable in sharing. That is your first line of defense. If you wish to have greater control of your privacy click on your account name in the upper right on the menu bar. A drop down box will appear. Select "privacy", and a page will appear allowing you to control your privacy settings. You also have the option of blocking specific users. Do this by selecting their name and checking "ignore". In the case of someone harassing you we have measures we can take. Contact us through the "report" function (preferable), or start a private conversation with a moderator.

What is the "Contentious" forum?

The Contentious forum is one we created to try and channel the topics which tend to push peoples buttons. This is not saying we want you to stir things up, what we are trying to do is keep from poisoning the rest of the community. Topics such as global warming and GMO should go there, but still keep it civil.
