I have just sent a postcode but not house number to a fellow well known Ukp member on East Mids after he asked where abouts of a Wg who i reveiwed yesterday. Would I give the house number ? Yes to certain friends.
I would only ever do this with guys I have known for a while on here. We do communicate well with each other in East Mids but warey of outsiders and newbies just like most would.
I can see the point in terms of trust when it's someone you know well it would be almost the opposite of what Mr give-her-an-eyeful suggested on here. If I were discussing prossies with a punter who was a mate I might say privately, with good will to him and the WG and any other WGs involved, "It's that green house on the corner, you know the one." Or "she moved from the seaside squat to the Leith penthouses." Yet there is never any point in giving more than that: you still have to arrange an appointment with the prossie herself and she might even feel on edge if a new customer knew her address.
This is not some war against prossies. We might not lick their arses (unless that's your taste) but we're hardly out to destroy the industry.
I'm always slightly saddened when a semi-regular has to move apartment (usually because someone has grassed up the address to the neighbours, the police or the newspapers). It is much better to identify them on AW, take a snapshot of their profile and any physically identifying body features before the profile is taken down, and do a review here plus a proper report to admin. (UKP Admin in no fluffy cunt and he takes punters' concerns seriously. That should surely be obvious?) They go on a blacklist where there is reason to believe that they are criminals. Other honest prossies will turn against them.
Note that there are also nutters... abolitionists, angry pimps, jealous prossies in some cases even, who come on here with these stories. Trolls in other words. If it is just an inexperienced punter then he should take a deep breath and listen and learn a bit. We're here to help by putting the punter first. That doesn't include encouraging stupidity.
