I'm not a moderator, however, with the nature of the internet this conversation would be better off using the board's Private Messaging feature. You shouldn't really throw your name and identifying information out on a public searchable board. Just a thought from a security standpoint
Type "data mining" into Google, find out what Google (and Facebook) are doing, and get back with us in about twenty years... I never put anymore info on a site than I have to. Using a private message is the way to go.
