Birthdays removed Birthdays are removed from public viewing for privacy concerns The moderators and helpers informed me that while we edit posts to remove birth dates, they were still available in the calendar. With a little calculation it is easy to get this information from there. If a hacker or other criminal type gets your full name and your full birth date, that is all that they need to get your drivers license number, your social security number, your address, phone numbers and where you bank. So, for the interest and the safety of the community, I have removed the birthdays from the calendar and the birthday thread in the general discussion area. The team will keep your experience here as safe as possible.
