After much thought, even before starting a thread today, I decided to delete myself from any and all social media including this one. The last straw was when someone tried to pull a fast one on me on another site where I was trying to sell one of my bows. I no longer want my name and email address to appear anywhere on the internet except where it is absolutely necessary.

Big Tasty I certainly understand your consternation. But deleting or disabling your Social media accounts won't delete your inernet history.

I don't know exactly how to delete an account on here.

It's the world we have forced on us, just be cautious and a little suspect of anyone.

Delete your cookies.

Deleting you cookies only logs you out. It doesn't delete your registration.

Happy trails……

This place is like the hotel California. You can check out. But you can never leave;)

"Relax said the night man, we are programmed to receive."

I guess the moderator could do it but I don't know that for sure. If you clear your cookies that will sign you out. If you have a smart phone, you're pretty easy to's 2022 and anonymity is no more. There is no privacy as we once knew it.

You can get a VPN, and there are ways to become anonymous on the internet, but if you carry a cell phone you are 1000% being tracked. Not only did we accept the technology that provides the means, we even codified it into law. George Orwell was a prophet.

Whatever trips your trigger.

To wife, "Darlin, I'm gettin rid of my cell phone because 'they' are trackin' me." Her, "So am I." Me, :shudder:

I like my phone and won't be getting rid of it anytime soon. If 'they' want to come see me in person, there I'll be.

I agree Bob. When I run from the authorities I won’t take my phone. Lol. We are just sheep.

If you tell Phil to stick it where the sun don’t shine he will take care of it promptly. :)

""If you tell Phil to stick it where the sun don’t shine he will take care of it promptly.""

Yep, that's an alternative measure.

I don't believe you can remove yourself from the cyber world and continue to use it. Turn off your computer and phone is the only solution. What you don't know after that , you won't know.

From: DanaC

What happens on he internet is there forever - the internet is constantly taking 'snap shots' of itself and archiving those so even if you deleted every account you ever had there is a record of what you did and when.

Personally I hold to the saying that 'Paranoia is it's own punishment' and say what I please.

Removing yourself from here removes you from among some of the finest people you will ever associate with, The Trad Community. There are jackasses in every walk of life. Leaving a “community” like this one only means you let the bad guys win.

Once it's out there, it's always out there.

The only way you will be safe again, is to change your entire identity (everything), move to a new address far FAR away from where you are now, get rid of all electronic devices (including cell phone), then never EVER go online again.

Even after all that, if they want you bad enough, they'll find you.

What kind of "fast one" did he try to pull? (so that we will be forewarned)

Can’t say I blame ya!

Big Tasty, as several have said, just delete your Bowsite cookies.

We didn't realize how simple life was, and how happy we were in the '70's.

I agree David. I miss those times.

If you remember the 70's you weren't there ;-) I lost about 8 years in a cloud of funny smoke...

Anonymity was a blessing most of us kept trying to loose. Well, you've gone and done it. The worst possible thing you can own is a smart phone. I won't have one on the place.

From: Smokey

They’ve been trying to find me for 50 some years and haven’t yet!….The only reason is I don’t even know where I’m at most the time anyway!
