There are no personal information when signed up are of importance to be shared. Two requirements are needed email and age other requirement can be made up ,it's the choice of members to remain anonymous or reveal their identity.
The intent of GNI and the Discussion Forum when it started in 1996 few years after the Internet became available to the public was to link Guyanese from all parts of the world .Many Guyanese have shared their information on GNI http://www.guyana.org/Directory/guydir.htm for the purpose of connecting with friends when they migrate to other countries.
The bitterness that remains in the minds of the defectors for almost two years, they wanted the Forum ,the owner sticks to his word and they were defeated the made up accusation sharing information was false. I run a small business and aware of the Laws regarding sharing personal information.
Any of them who thinks they are followed on other social media platform are foolish there is no interest by myself.
When the Forum changed ownership it was around 185 members currently it's 301 members .There are many readers of the forum than participants. The trend of the discussions on the forums are focused on topics and not members.
Some Guyanese will never learn badmouthing gets you no where ,it eats away your mind. For the uninformed defectors hoopla and Crowdstack is the same company.
