By my research on this site.......I discovered that some people never give up and then cry....someone is stirring up trouble.......when in all honestly....people are just looking for something to do .........while they could be trying the supportive side of things.............horsefly

Kady,

I keep thinking about what you said in your post above...

"The way someone can look you up is by following your posts then looking for personal information in them and then typing them into a google. search."
....and I have to tell you....it's got me really creeped out!

I mean...if someone would take the time to go through all the posts (which are in the THOUSANDS!!) on an anonymous website to find personal info about the posters they must have some serious obsessive type or some other kind of psychological issues going on right? So who's to say they wouldn't do it just to mess with the heads of people here. Like when we were talking about Camer's situation last week and andii said that boyfriends and husbands have come here messing with posters, etc.etc. I mean who's to say it really was their boyfriend or husband? What if is was just some weirdo taking personal info found in the threads and using it to mess with people?

I honestly had never thought of that. But what better place for a predator to find vulnerable people to mess with than a counseling website?

The SC is obviously right to have that guideline about posting personal info, especially on a public forum. Better to be safe than sorry.... You never know what kind of mentally unstable predators may be lurking.

Thanks for heads up!

Hello lollipop3. I believe that the only way anyone can get information about our self is if we choose to provide it. Anyone can watch this site. Who knows who they are, why they are here or what they will do with the information. The owners of this site have warned people to stay anonymous and not to tell anyone they post here. Some of the stuff you mentioned that has happened to people here is a perfect example of what could happen if people don't heed their warning.

Someone posed as me, marypoppins, on Paul Elam's web site, this was a while ago, and made comments I'd never make. They had reviewed some of the posts on this forum and tried to toss in some elements to make it seem more real. It really pissed me off.

This didn't endanger anyone, but it was identity fraud, and it caused some trouble for me on this site. One poster here, who had been following Paul Elam's site, posted here that I should be banned for using my name on another site. She didn't bother to ask me about it before she suggested the "lynching". She just assumed it was true and decided to play SC. I had already emailed our SC and gotten a comforting response, so I wasn't worried about being banned. However, I wanted my "friends" here to know the truth.

Some people do have a lot of extra time on their hands and seem to get a sense of power from these kinds of Internet games. Whatever victory they have in cyberspace must be small in comparison to the wrecks of their real lives.

And apparantly, students use these kinds of web sites for research. I'm not sure how valid it is, though, since people can easily be false. Also, I don't know how one can both post here and use the site for research at the same time. That's not very objective.

For the record, I never said that, I asked about it.

Noted andii

Attention all....I made an error in my post and I would like to clear the record....it was sd that mentioned it first. And it was andii that asked the very odd question. (That is my own description and opinion of the question...for the record)

With that...the record stands corrected.

Can you please tell me what thread you are talking about? The last time I read the one that Camer started I thought she said in so many words that she knew it was her boy friend reading her posts and he was getting jealous over Billy. Please dont get mad if I didnt get it right because I am pulling this up from my memory.

What was "the very odd question"? I have a bad habit of not reading this stuff very closely.

I honestly didn't even want to come back to this thread......but I was aliitle aggressive.....myself.

But I had been dealing with a hacker in my FB for about 2 days now....removing passwords and took me 2 days to get it figured out and report him....but noticed,,for about 2 weeks how haywire my FB was.......turned out he was in disguise as someone I thought I knew from the breeder's cup...because he saw me om a comment to racing link....he lept a small collection of cute girls and sister was in it too.......so as far as I know he could of found me here too....fortunately I have emailed FB and he is now disabled from FB because of too many reports.

Moral of the story..........once I told a friend awhile back about this site......but I doubt she ever found it......years ago....I doubt she ever found it.....she doesn't know much about pcs. But I never tell people about this site.......I just told my doctor I have an online support group period..........tired of therapist.

Obsessive people men or women can find out everything you are doing or saying....like mentioned before usually by your thread title.....I have no idea whi is posing under a false name and anytime I did I accused I got attacked by others....I know who are...because I am use to the way people write.....and all that.....but it doesn't matter to me....because the people I like or disagree with....can sometimes provoke me and I learn about myself and my reactions anyway.

Isn't this what this site is about...us learning about ourselves and how we interact with people. I will be the first to admit I am no saint either....and can get my buttons pushed.......but I do try to get along with everyone......because I appreciated them being here. The people here are full of experience and stuff I can relate to and lollipop you are also one of them......this is about you being googled....but much more because so many people were also mentioned. horsefly

Also just for the record.....I have seen so many people get away with stuff that should have been banned....atleast for awhile.......I think it depends on how and who reports you........I have seen people just harass the other and are still here........I have also seen me be banned for just saying one peep that was not respectful to another.......not banned for every but SC said I needed a break.....that was along time ago....but I think some people just jump on a chance to have someone banned and report them sometimes.......I know they did me when they ganged up a few years ago....anyway this is just my own opinion.......no one has to agree with it......not really up for it....but will if need be......horsefly

I hear what you are saying horsefly. There was a time I myself was accused of using various nicknames, and apparently this was reported as I was not able to sign in or post for a brief period. If you've read the exchange that lollipop3 referred posters to at Paul Elam's site, then you probably realize that I was accused of being free, one of the banned posters that have brought a few people great joy in this thread. When this happened I emailed the SC asking what was going on. Shortly thereafter, she let me know that she was concerned at first, but that all if fine and I was welcomed and able to post again. So if anybody feels that my posts are "odd", suspicious, etc, or if anybody thinks I am a previously banned poster (as accused a number of months ago), please DO email the Site Coordinator so that I, too, can enjoy the wonderful benefits of this site freely, as most other do. This would be sincerely appreciated.

(((sdesigns))). I found the thread. This type of stuff happens. I know exactly what Lollipop is eluding to.

(((horsefly)). I read what you wrote about not being a saint. I think that is what this is all about. Owning up to our role in what goes on in our life. I have a confession to make too. I found out that I am really good at picking People apart and now I am rebuilding my life and repairing my relationships with others. This includes people here on AAC.

(((lollipop))) I am sorry if I influenced you the wrong way with that crazy post I put up way back when about Andii being Free. I had no facts to back it up. I take responsibility for planting that seed of doubt into everybody's mind.

(((andii))) Thank you for accepting my apology. I feel a lot better. I have no excuse for posting that crazy thread with all of those wild accusations. The worst part about the whole thing is the bad influence it had on anyone who read it. I have no excuse for my behavior. Believe me I caught hell from the SC for it. By the grace of God I didnt get banned. Yes, I learned my lesson.

I do recall you said something about horses. When it comes to horses I am all ears. Horse Fly had a thread called the OK Corral. It was on the support side. I think I am going to get it going again so we can all talk about our pets. IMHO there is only one thing better than focusing on ourselves and that is to focus on our pets.

(((horsefly))) they broke the mold when they made you. It helps to remember how we felt when we were new and got picked on so we dont do this to the new people that sign on. I hope we can all help them to feel welcome.
