Be careful of what you write
 
Hey yall!

I was just thinking, what if my mom went on my WI account? Would i like her reading all the stuff i write? Post? No, i wouldnt. So i just wanted to remind everyone, be careful what you write, the WHOLE world can see it. If you dont want someone reading it, then dont post it. Its okay to change names though. Thanks for reading :)

I completely agree and I think that we should make this a LARGE point in WI... What would you think if someone just said... JUST EXAMPLE I DO NOT MEAN THIS: I HATE CLAIRE... Would you reall ywant someone to read that??? NO! I COMPLETELY agree with you claire!

CLAIRE... I DO NOT HATE YOU.... YOU ROCK!

Re: Be careful of what you write
 
Well, you are INCREDIBLY RIGHT!!!! But, like, I don't feel the same way, because most of the stuff I post about are webkinz so, that wouldn't really interest my mom. But, I know where you are coming from. Like on the Open Mike? Some people might write about their crush, or their secret. And they won't be so happy if their mom finds out. But, I have felt that way on Yahoo Answers. I have asked some pretty private questions. ps....i said my mom a lot but i know that u mean like people you wouldn't like knowing the stuff you write. i just kept the person "mom". thanks for posting this though!

You make a very good point.

Not just for WI.

But for the whole internet as well.

It is not your private oasis. It is a open internet highway for ANYONE to look at anything you write, post, put up a picture, anything. and it is theirs to keep forever.

You do not know who it is! Your mom, a teen. A predator, whoever.

The internet is a dangerous place and not monitored you can get into a lot of trouble.

and not just from your MOM!

and YES I am a mom!

I agree, we should be careful of what we write. We should always be careful how we treat people even when we are off WI.

Great thoughts everyone needs to be careful w/ what they write or do or put on a computer !! Whether its WI / Myspace / Face book etc.. You never can be careful enough!! Good Thoughts. I would say WI is one of the safer sites I have seen & thats a big thanks to everyone involved!!!

Re: Be careful of what you write
 
Thanks for the great reminder! Rep!
I think we all need to be reminded about this - anyone can read anything you write online! Nothing is secret or safe!
Another reminder - If you lie, someone who knows it's a lie can read it and find out. Just another reason not to lie.
Plus, remeber about giving out personal information! It's not safe to post anything personal! Anyone can read it, whether you want them to or not.
Basically, the internet is not a safe place. Don't post anything you wouldn't want in headline world news. Don't post any pictures you wouldn't be comfortable with being on TV.

Another good tip - re-read your messages before you post. Not only is this good for spelling errors, but it's a great way to take a minute and say, hey, is this really what i want to say? Is it appropriate and kind? If not, don't post it.

That's my advice.
