He's right - even if no member of this list would use your info, the list 
is archived in _several_ places (including freegroups.net) for easy 
searching. I have no way to remove the posting from those archives 
(believe me, I've tried before). So anyone with a web browser could 
stumble upon your info tomorrow, or a month from now - and even if I'd 
trust anyone on-list with my credit info, I sure wouldn't trust the 
"average Windows-using chatroom-lurking web-addict" not to go charge 
themselves a new Pentium tomorrow. (Am I naive in assuming that anyone 
who'd do this wouldn't be buying a new G3 instead?)

I'd treat this just as if you'd left your credit card laying on the 
counter at 7-11, and it was gone when you went back an hour later...
