Like I'm going to put my name, address, phone number, date of birth, and email address on a POSTCARD for anyone to see.

Dudes, this is a *REALLY* bad idea.

It truely is. I'm sure it was an after thought; somebody went "oh ****" we are gonna have another Atari promo mess. Though this is likely the worst possible solution, it actually is so amusing for a moment I had to check my calendar, making sure April 1st hadn't snuck up on me.

Sure you don't also want my SSN, mother's maiden name, signature, and a stain of my blood on this highly-visible-to-anyone postcard, since I'm printing it by hand anyhow? This almost sounds like those guys in Nigeria offering me all that money

I thought it was no PO Boxes? Why do you want us to mail our entry to a PO Box?

Its funny that Cryptic has our subscriber detail on file, can't we just enter the contest through a page on the website instead?

Would still like confirmation if this is a USA only offer and what the closing date is please, also, the postcard (if eligible) will be sent in an envelope as it has a lot of personal information on it.

Postcard contest entries are in fact a ploy for the heads of large companies to drastically and rapidly increase their postcard collection for free. I for one am not going to be "slapped in the face" then "thrown under a bus" by falling for such schemes. Don't say I didn't warn you "from day one"!

Sending your name, Address, DOB is a huge security issue. Year of birth MAYBE, but not the whole thing.
