After reading all the terrible threads about a member having her privacy breeched by a maybe/maybe not member, it got me thinking about people in real life that I may come across on here, or what would happen if someone found me.
I have found a member I know... I went to school with her, she is on my FB. I know it is her because part of her daughters name is used in her user name, and her avetar is a picture of both her children - a picture I have seen on FB.
I thought about PMing her and saying HEY!! IM HERE TOO but decided against it because a) we choose user names to keep ourselves private, if we wanted people to know who we are, we would use our real names like on FB and b) like I said she is on my FB so could easily message her there instead and it would be less creepy
I would in no way shape or form EVER use anything she says against her in any situation. In fact, I try my best to stay away from threads that she has posted and/or commented in. She mainly posts in the parenting area and I have no children so have no need to go into these area's. If I do come across a post of hers in a generalised thread area, I do not respond nor quote or even post in that thread because I respect her privacy - as I would expect anyone who found me from real life to do also.
So what do you do/have you done if you have come across someone from real life? Has anyone ever found you? If so what have they done?
