Important to remember...

Postby gillshutt » Sat Nov 14, 2009 10:37 am

Please could everyon eremember that this is an open forum and that means you aren't just talking to your friends on here, potentially you could be talking to anyone.

If you give out personal details then you don't know who will see them. Also if people google certain phrases then a topic on here could come up. So if someone typed small children, xtown, boys in and you had put up that you lived in xtown and here's a photo of my boys then it would come up in a google search.

It's not just us on here, it's the world and anything that could identify you or those you love should be kept in pm's not put on open forum.

Also, personal details in posts can be put together e.g.
I'm single.
I'm from xton
I live on my own
I live next door to a school.
All put in seperate posts.
I'm only a two minute walk from the hopital.
Photos of yourself with a recognisable background.

Anything of that sort

That would give some nutter the details to find you if they wanted to. So please do be careful what you put and also what info you give out in pm's to people you don't know very well. There's no saying that people are who they say they are. Doris from Brighton could be Killer from nextdoor! (sorry if there is a Doris from Brighton :shock: )
