Just A Gentle Warning

Slightly off topic but happened to read a post named "who are you" and was a bit concerned.  When we join med help, we are cautioned against including too much personal information and reminded that posts are public and can be googled by anyone anywhere and in my mind, under today's sad situation, some of what I read can be assembled and re-googled by hackers around the world, seeking to learn about you and steal your identity and your money!

Having been thru identity theft twice, I'm very cautious and so this post with over 70 replies bothered me.  Only because the participants were so very sharing.  True they didn't use names but hackers are very clever.

I'm not out to rain on anyone's parade, just try and use your inbox for sharing of information that is personal and could help draw conclusions...........just be careful......ok?

good advice, Sarah.  That is an old  post from quite a few years ago.... but even then caution should have been the status quo.
