4. Activate “Contact privacy”

Note: Once Jill allows Paul to view her contact information, Paul will be able to view her contact information henceforth.

3. Why can I not remove a location from a particular user?

This is because the user has posted items that are still live in the said location. Please instruct the user to delete his/her items from the said location. Why is this? T o avoid orphaned items with no associated user.  This keeps the system clean and free of orphaned posts.
