Just curious as I know that most discussion forums are crawled by the search engines and posts are indexed. From there they can easily be found by anyone just by typing in your user name in either Google or www.boardreader.com I'm always surprised at how many people are unaware of this and post extremely sensitive and personal information. It becomes easy to think there is nothing out there but you and the screen in front of you, but I just wanted to remind everyone to be cautious. There are a lot of people are there ready to target your dreams, your identity, and your billfolds...not to mention cyberstalkers. Use care when u post.
