Wasn't sure if anyone found there "enemy," on this site. Someone messaged me told me to beware of what things you share on here. Internet safety and it should be first! LOL


Anyone actually gone through that?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

[deleted account]

I have had an enemy attack me for what I had said online...but it was someone IN my home. He had a keylogger installed on my computer and watched my every click. Sometimes the enemy is closer than you think. ;-)
That keylogger told him every time I tapped the keyboard. Even if I backspaced and made a change to my text...he could see what I wrote originally, when I backspaced...and what I typed in it's place.
Since I've had that happen...I keep in the front of my mind that EVERYTHING I type on a computer is available to ANYONE who bothers to go looking for it.

(Please note that Ink Ette is NOT my name...it's an internet ID that I use often.) I don't post the actual city I live in either...I post the biggest city NEAR me.

I also NEVER post inappropriate pictures of my children. I have a huge fear of some fat guy in his mother's basement wanking with a picture of my son in the bathtub on his screen.

If you type a post that needs to include a family member or friend...try to generalize. Use the term BF...instead of "My best friend Nicole" Say my DS..or SS...instead of using your child's name. Call her the BM instead of "that psychobilly bitch".

This website has been a HUGE help for me...I start my day every morning with a cup of coffee and COM. I read posts that are totally unrelated to anything relevant to my children...because it might be important later. I soak up each opinion...and use it to form my OWN opinions. I have built a wonderful strong network full of incredibly intelligent women who genuinely CARE about my success as a mother.
I hope this site can be the same for you...with a little "cover your butt" in place...this can be an amazing source of information..support and help.

Yeah, I have. That's why my last name isn't on here and my picture is of a flower. I also know people who have been spied on (on this site and other social networking sites). It sucks, but if you know the full name of the person you *think* might be on here you can message the management team (using the "contact us" link on the bottom of the page) and they will try to find the person so you can block them (this doesn't make them not able to see your posts though, it just makes it so they can't see your profile or message you on here).

Other than that, I think everyone needs to use basic common sense when posting things on international public websites like this. I'm not saying this isn't a safe site, I'm just saying that people should always use common sense filters when posting because once something's out there in cyber world it's pretty impossible to erase it (even if it is deleted, it isn't always erased on some sites).

Oh, my name is Holly, I just didn't put my last name (married or maiden). I figured I didn't need to put a fake name because my name is still fairly popular (I've seen quite a few people with the same name on here). :)
