i'm thinking it's a matter of time before some kind of privacy law is put through. It bothers me that anybody can search a name like that. It's a good idea to google your name periodically too.
forums are public --unless they are set up to be private (see the private secondary bb, it's totally private run by a savvy woman who knows how to make the internet private, she's good--also a good bb to go to when or if you all are ttc #2 and beyond)
so although we here share moments and details that are somewhat private and it feels like it's just us reading, keep in mind that anybody can find this forum (how did YOU find it?). So if you use your real name and this bothers you, change your name, that's ok
have a login so you can delete or edit your posts. The only thing is that people can see if you are here on the bb.
If you are on Facebook, there are settings you need to flick to make it private.
I wish we didn't have to do that. I'd make this forum private in a heart beat but I like that people can post in anon if they want to keep their secret a bit longer
or are shy or whatever. It always takes a rotten apple to spoil it
thanks for posting this, it's important to spread the word.
btw, I've deleted all my more private photobucket photos a week ago, just because I realized it's a very public site and I hadn't thought about it until then. Life can be busy enough without worrying about these kinds of details. (roll eyes)
So keep that in mind, using any photo sharing site, if someone does a search for, say, cute baby or pg belly, they can swipe your pic and use it.
