Could we have a safety warning on the Meet-ups board?

Following on from the activities of the sad and/or sinister WigandRobe, which have freaked some of us out a little, could we have a message at the top of the Meet-Ups board reminding users about basic safety precautions when meeting people through the internet? The kind of thing they have on personal ads pages.

Hi Franch,
Yes it's a good idea - we'll add a reminder about sensible precautions asap but do bear in mind everyone that in five years of meet-ups there have been precisely no reported incidents of hairy lorry drivers turning up or any other suspicious types for that matter.

Thanks Justine - glad to know nothing nasty has ever happened - just got worried after the whole W&R thing - definitely better to be safe than sorry. I have other MNers round to my home but only after meeting them elsewhere first - began to wonder recently if I was being paranoid but this trolling stuff has confirmed my caution.
