| Personally I'm happy to tell you who I am and give you my email
| address on my website. But I'm less than enthusiastic about having
| random people on the internet being able to walk up to my front door.
For perhaps 15 years my signature line included my (home) phone
number. I used this in Usenet news and mailing list postings.
I only remember one surprising call that came from this., and it was
OK. Someone who owned the same modem asked for help by phone rather
than email or netnews.
I decided signature lines were a waste of bandwidth.
