Believe it or not...a VERY PUBLIC forum!

I have a story that made me realize just how public this wonderful forum is. A little embarrassing as it came up in front of the Executive Producer...

A few weeks ago in my throws of wanting a little girl, I posted a link to pictures from a Wheaton breeder from whom a colleague of mine is getting two little girls. Well this colleague was in the car this weekend (not driving) and searched this breeders name and lo and behold what comes up but a link to the thread on the forum entitled "NO! MISSY NO!" Well, knowing my name is Missy, and that I have two Havanese he went and looked at the link and found I was talking about him and his girls to be. He also saw how crazy obsessive I can be about my dogs and the HF. Luckily for me this business manager is in the throws of getting his puppies too and I didn't write anything embarrassing about him. But It made me painfully aware to be careful what you write! It is not necessarily for OUR EYES ONLY!

BTW...he gets his pups in 8 days!

Great info Missy, we tend to think only our friends on here can read what we post. It's easy to forget how others can access the forum.

Lucky for you there wasn't anything posted that you would be embarrassed about!!!

(You still can't have a puppy! NO Missy, NO!!!)

Yeah, very true... I learned this lesson about forums a long time ago as a teenager after getting myself into some major drama. I think the only thing I wouldn't want someone else to read on this forum is my "Ghost Dog" thread lol.

wow----that is a good reminder. I know if you search almost anything and everything can easily come up--it is actually kinda scary.

Missy I realized that a long time ago. When googling Prairiwind, many potential puppy buyers find one of my posts on here and contact me for my impressions.

Missy, that very same thing has really been going thru my mind lately. Especially since someone somehow got into my computer and changed my secret security question on my bank account!! I'm seriously thinking of quitting FB and all my online forums!

Carole! Please send up your e-mail address before you do that! I'd miss you terribly on here!! I love reading about your troop and seeing your photos.

On reading this again, I guess you didn't mention the HF, whew! I panicked, Ha!
