Doesn't Respect Your Privacy?

    dlagwagon tracks all users movements on the internet both during and after they leave the site. They use this information about you to make money. Is that okay with you? Do you think you should be entitled to opt out or to more services as a result?

    Sure it's fun to be informed and realistic but wouldn't it be a trip to spread disinformation and be panicky?

    Although it's clear that you're trolling for most frequent forum visitors, for those who have questions about the privacy policy of, I'll copy and paste an answer I just posted to your other forum thread that says pretty much the same things.

    Personally, I don't find this a problem. In fact, before I agree to a game, I often find out about my opponent beforehand and it often adds to experience (especially given I am one of those folks that actually likes to engage with my opponent and appreciates courteous play).

    One thing that does bother me though is that people can post notes that are damming (some could say slanderous). I feel there should be a facility of disallowing the masses seeing these.

    Members can change their settings to make it so either everyone can post on and see their notes, or just their friends can.

    How about abusive group notes?

  • 4 years ago · Quote · #10


    thanks kohai for the info but can one simply delete a note that seems inappropriate will allowing world access for everything else.

    I have on a number of times seen a note posted by a disgruntled opponent questioning the sportsmanship of his/her opponent and this has deterred me from making/accepting a challenge to/from that person.

    jrb136, yes, you can delete a note that is posted on your homepage. When someone posts a note, you'll see three options: "reply, delete, block." That means, you can not only delete posts, but also can block people from posting any notes to you homepage, ever. 

    StrategicPlay, if there are abusive group notes that are simply not possible to ignore and move on, you can report them using the Help & Support link below every page, and click on contact support on the left bottom of that page.

    philidor_position, it's clear that I'm trolling? What by opening a dialog? Sorry if I find it offensive that needs to track me when I leave their site. I'm not about to quit altoghether but can't people lobby to get something changed if they don't like. You think it's okay? You like having someone look over your shoulder? Here is my privacy policy: if you want to post on my thread again enter you email username and password and I will sell it however i want

    The amount of information one enters in is the amount can track for that person.

    Folks, I think that this thread misses a much more important and concerning issue: doesn't respect our piracy!

    OP:  Whatever they may or may not be doing, if you care about it but are too stupid or lazy to take the very simple actions necessary to prevent it, then you get what you deserve.
