If you receive posts by email your email address is open to members. If we had (have) mole”he/she/it could surf our emails for valid addresses to send “stuff” to.
I never approve a request to join unless it seems like the requestor is a machining person. I have had a lot or requests like “I want to join” etc.
I just reject them and send a note saying the need to convince me they are not a spammer. I have never heard back.
