  •  Yeah, I think people should be a little discreet (0+ / 0-)

    When I was a kid my dad told me his younger brother showed a couple of his friends their dad's (my grandpa) coin collection.

    The next week it was stolen.

    They tortured people to get false confessions to justify invading Iraq.

      to teach kids in particular, but also our parents. What to write on a website, and what not to post on a website.

      These are skills once learns.

      For example never, ever post your real world address, or a real phone number. There are some things you cannot avoid, like doing that on a credit card order, but not having your web browser save the info is a must, even if you have to re-enter it every time.

      Those are good skills to have.

      •  It's sad. (0+ / 0-)

        I used to post photos of roses and other flowers from my garden on the IGTNT diaries.
        Then I read an analysis of how people here could use the photos to cruise through one's online photo albums. I stopped posting personal pics on the internet.
        I feel sad, when I just post to say I am sorry to the families. But I don't want the world to know all about me and my family.
