spooked out

  1. I find it kind of creepy that this board knows & tells everyone where we all are and what we are looking at . Why is this ? I'm fairly new to BB .

    Where do they do that?

    It only releases the information that you want it to release - I will not even show your E-mail if you decide not to let it

    What exactly are you referring to

    Do you mean that the specific forums show who all is reading that forum at the time? (lists the members logged onto particular forum...)

    If that's what you're talking about, then what's the big deal? Why are you so paranoid?

    Don't understand your comment. Please elaborate on exactly what you mean. I do not feel unsafe on this BB. Sorry that you do. I think this whole site has a wonderful group of supportive and caring people to share our thoughts and troubles with. Opinions too.

    You can spy on me anytime.

    You can always just "lurk" around anonymously. I usually only log in when I want to post something. I'm not scared, I don't mind people knowing I am in Charleston. If you're gonna get stalked, you're gonna get stalked. It could be a guy from the gas station just as easily as someone from online. Now telling someone your home address isn't necessarily the smartest thing...

    I think I have posted the county that I live in, but I don't think that someone would come looking for me. At least I hope not!
    I'm like most of the rest of y'all, I lurk on here and read the posts and reply when I have something to say.
    I would never get on a chat line and give out my address or phone # to anyone.

    I've noticed nursey1 hasn't replied back telling us what she means. I get the impression she's talking about where on the board we're "lurking at" rather than our physical location.
    Care to clarify, nursey1?

    I think that every BB I have been on has that feature that tell who is reading what. I have never felt threatened by it.
