  • Sharing personal details

    Please be careful fellow hubbers when including links to your web sites or home pages on this or any other forum.

    Leave no identifying information - no names, addresses, workplaces etc.

    I was alarmed to follow a link recently to see photo's of naked little ones. I love nothing more than watching my little ones run around naked but the thought that someone else is watching them or looking at them and getting excited over it sickens me to the very core.

    This is, after all, a PUBLIC forum.

    I'd just like to support what Supermum has said. We have had reports from other parenting websites recently where weirdos were harassing their members with inappropriate questions regarding their children.

    Please be seletective about the information you provide here: in your posts and signatures and the content of any links that you include. We just want to make sure that nothing sours your hubbing.

    Cheers

    ps. if you've got any questions regarding what is too much information, PM a mod who will be happy to help you out.

          I've been on a few other forums in other web sites that have weirdo's attacking and stalking people, anything that you type on here and even your pic in your avitar (is that how you spell it?) can be coppied and stored on stranger's computers

              So much now you have to be careful about.

              I never thought the day would come when I would worry over a silly commercial advertising baby wipes, but everytime I see it on TV I cringe, and wonder what perverts are getting their jollies from them

                          It is not just email addresses being passed on that one should be careful of sharing. The most commonly used passwords are memorable dates (birthdays / anniversaries) names (first, last, childrens,partners etc) followed by favourite items and things within eyeshot of the computer.

                          Although i generally use random letter number sequences i still never answer those

                          "whats your .......",
                          where did you..... or
                          if you could have" type threads on any board.

                          It is not necessarily the person posting the quesion, but anyone who views the answers could easily access your other online accounts.

                          Think about it, when was the last time you changed your MSN or yahoo "secret question" was it before or after posting about your favourite pets or where you grew up, what school you went to etc etc etc ?


                          I think someone also mentioned security settings that only allow those on your msn list to access photo's?

                          A single google search for msn add-ons will lead you to links that explain how to add yourself without showing as a contact or waiting for approval. Unless your a security expert the only really safe way to share personal photo's with family and friends is to splurge on the 10 cents to print them and 45c to post.

                              This is the very reason that I have a website for my son, but it is password protected and the only people who have access to the password are family and close friends. Plus I dont put nude pictures of him on it anyway!

                              Moonblossom, I agree with you. Ads make me cringe too that have nude or semi nude children on them. Some sickos out there are enjoying that!
