I have been told that posting url,s into a chat room message board is not a good idea because it is possible for the person receiving the url to find out personal details of your computer, and user personal details. Does anyone on the forum have any information or advice on this topic? Thanks, j_man

Frank is correct. You send someone a link to a site, NOT to your computer.
I've posted URL's in chat rooms-if I didn't feel it was safe, I wouldn't do it.

If they say they can hack into your computer, or give you the "in 1 minute your computer will shut down and be destroyed because I can make it do that" ignore them.

My response to those people, bring it on. I tell them to find out my personal details and post them for all to see. So far, no one has ever taken me up on the challenge, my computer hasn't been destroyed or turned off by them.

My opinion of those who say things like that: something is so lacking in their lives and it's pathetic they have to get on the internet and attempt to be a bully.
