I'm on this site, a few other online forums, and Discord (but only on Discord because of another need for it). nothing like FB, Twitter, or insta or snap for that exact reason. Privacy statements and data farming.
I've used discord and believe me when I tell you, its not worth the headaches as far as stolen info, etc. Besides, we got the RR forum that we can use. These days I am more of a lurker (from Michigan) because any questions I may have may have already been asked at some point or another. As for sharing real-time incidents, that's what the sub-forum is for. Just my .02 worth. Not discouraging you from doing it, just sharing my opinion.
