It is supposed to be something like facebook for freemasons. That is all I know about it though. I probably would not join personally. I don't even use my facebook account much. Do you know who invited you? If so ask them about it.

I'm on FB, but very wary of what information I put on.
Too many people post information about themselves and wonder wht they get bombarded with "offers", too good to resist.
I'll have a peek at this F******", but that's about it.

I received it via e-mail today.  The reason I found this forum is that I was looking for information on F*******.

I received an invitation a couple of days ago.  Never heard of them, and do not know who sent the invitation.     Deleted it, spam

Seems like a phishing scam to me.  Some attempt at collecting personal information.

Is anyone here a member?

To ******* from F******

On first place, sorry for my english, is not my mother language.

Hello B.·.

This is the webmaster of F*******.com

I really do not undestand the witches hunt you are trying to raise. With sorry I must say, that you look more like a fanatic than to a Freemason.

I do not have to provide you any kind information or explanation, just becouse you ask for it. Who you think you are? A lot of members of F******e knows who I am personally, and the rest can contact me and ask if they want, I am just shy but I am not hiden.

You was invited personally by me to F*********, bececouse a B.·. showed me what you were writing on your website, and he told me to send you an invitation in order that you can see what F****** is.

I will cancell right now your invitation, since I do not think you are able to share nothing interesting with all the BB.·. on F*****e. We should not discuss nothing related to Freemasonry  this way, and less to attack directly other Brothers, as you, *** are doing openly on your website and forums.

F****** is discreet, not secret, and is not a discussion site. F******e is owned by Freemasons (Again, this is not the place to disclose anything), The only way to be part of F*****e, is to receive an Invite from other member, and ofcourse, you must be a Freemason.

Who are inside F******? I can not answer to you that question, If a member wants to say that he is on F****** he is free to do it, logically, but I am not the one that will reveal nothing to you or to anybody who ask.

And to finish, F***** has nothing to do with Facebook, Facebook is an open social network for profane friends. F***** is a private network for Freemasons. We do not use a bit of the Facebook code, and for sure, we do not infringe any of their copyrights. F*****e code is registered and patented. And is simmilar to any other social network as Facebook,  Myspace, Linkedin, with a big difference, is just for Freemasons and is just by invitation.


End of the conversation.

Regards,

F*******

F****** who are you talking to? ***** has said nothing on this thread at all. Ed is not a member of this forum even. He is a member of others that I am a member of but I have not seen him on here at all. My question to you is what is f****** about? If it is owned by a freemason, under what lodge and  grand lodge are they a member? Personally I would not join something from an email that I did not know where it came from. That is what seems to be happening from others accounts. There are many scams out there that it would be stupid to reply to any unsolicited email. I am not saying that f*******is a scam in no way.  I have seen email scams using freemasonry before and do not trust things blindly. I would love for you to explain what it is about and who is running it instead of coming in here and complaining about someone that is not involved in this conversation. Thank you greatly.

After trying to read the above post by "F*******  with the poor spelling and grammer I suspect it is not legit and would not join.  It looks alot like the phishing items I get daily in my email.   As well anyone not identifing themselves when sending an email is an automatic delete.

Read the post again, and you will understand the spell issue, is on the first line.

Regarding to Bro. ******* I post this on the wrong forum sorry.

Regarding to who is f******, or who is inside f*****. Sorry, this is not the place to tell it. There is nothing secret about F*****, is just discretion. As Freemasons you are free to disclose your identity or not, but you never may force a Brother to disclouse his Identity.

Regarding to the pishing or scam, who do you think will invest so many time to create such site to have your email account. If you receive an email is becouse the person who invited you already has your email, and to join is free..but is just by invitation. So where is the scam?

That is all I will say, I have too much work and I do not have time to waste on conspiracy theories. If you receive an invitation, you are free to join or not. As you say, you are free to delete it.

Regards,

, with all due respect, I deal with computer security and have seen many problems from many different areas. There are viruses, trojans, worms, and others transfered through social networking sites such as facebook, myspace, and others. You can not blame someone from being cautious. You say that someone must know someone to send them an invitation, yet you said that you sent Brother King his invitation personally. I do not see why you hide behind an anonymous domain through godaddy.
 
This is actually posted on the GL of Maine's website:
Quote

“In mid-March, 2011, a number of Maine Masons received invitations to join a ‘discussion website’ at . Prior to this time, there were no announcements about this site nor did the invitation give any hint as to the creators of the site or their Masonic affiliation, if any. The site is designed, perhaps illegally, to look like Facebook™. The website’s registration is ‘hidden’ through a private domain registration at GoDaddy.com. Because of the clandestine status of this site, I would presently discourage any Maine Mason from getting involved. Despite my very active online presence, I have not personally received an invitation nor would I accept it without knowing who was behind it.”

http://www.mainemason.org/scams.asp

I find it funny that you have to be invited when it is considered wrong to invite people into masonry. It seems to go against what freemasonry teaches. It seems like you would at least tell us under what grand lodge the owners of this site fall under. I will tend to agree with what Ed posted until more info comes out about this site.

Brothers,
 
The poster (F******) is using our well-known Brother's name to try to get the search engines to link our Brother's name in his effort to raise his Freemason search rankings. 
 
I ask the moderators to immediately strike this Brother's name from the post as it is not an ethical use of our Brother's name.
 
This poster knows what he's doing AND uses his knowledge of the English language in an attempt to mask his identity. 
 
He is a known quantity.  Put up the roadblocks.  He is not "FM safe."

I agree with coach. User F**** addressed his/her diatribe to a well known Mason who is - to the best of my knowledge - not a member of these forums. I recommend that his name be edited from the applicable posts.

I think we have had enough Brothers raise concerns about this other site that we should shut down the account and delete its name from our forum so it can not use MM to raise its stature.

Thank you all for your comments and concerns.
