I've been around since the Tumblr days, but only joined this new version recently. Since you all have been posting for a while, I'm wondering what your take is on the security concerns of posting all your gears on the site?
Call me paranoid - but that's why I'm interested in survival gear - I always wondered if posting my gear up would be attracting people to rob or hack. Given how connected we are today, a robber or hacker might as well Google us before their theft. Our EDC would come right up, and they would find out what exactly they can steal and what defense we would have.
One thing I know for sure is to never post a picture of your house keys in full. With today's scanning technologies (e.g. Key.me), it's pretty easy to robbers to manufacture a copy of your key with only a photograph, and it can be done quickly overnight and be picked up at RiteAid at midnight. I see quite many keys here linked to real names, and I feel that they might want to be aware of this.
Also, car keys suggest what cars you might have, and some cars are more prone to theft and hacking than others.
Second, I'll probably recommend reddit-level privacy measures here... which means no traces to real name. I noticed that a few of the EDC-ers here do use real name though.
Third, which I think is pretty obvious, is to verify twice if any of your personal info is in your gear photo, which means no IDs, no credit cards, no traces of addresses, etc.
And I guess it doesn't hurt to put a knife there as a deterrent.
Thoughts? Maybe some sort of guidelines on these issues?
