I too have had some depressingly direct experience in dealing with
such difficulties and their aftermath. This is good advice and should
generally be followed on the basis of simple privacy as well as
healthy paranoia.

In this particular case I would expect that such is not an issue,
since the individuals in question were still using the same Society
names the original poster knew them by, and were holding offices that
would result in these names and contact information being published in
various newsletters.
