    Over the past few months a few people have been a bit concerned that when they googled their name or their child's name, this forum came up.

    This is something which, if you or your child have an unusual name, cannot be avoided if you post it on the forum.

    Google cannot see the pictures section, or the members only area.

    If you are concerned about any posts, we can always move or remove them.

    I know many, many people won't care if info is seen on here, but some people with sensitive issues going on at home etc may wish to think about posting more personal stuff in the members area.

    I just thought some people might find this info useful, as I have been queried on it today by a member.

    My hubby won't let me post personal info - I feel a bit aggrieved by it sometimes but I suppose it makes sense personal safety wise.
    Like I said in another post, DH works in computers and says he has heard of too many people either having identities stolen or getting death threats from weirdo's etc :shock: :oops:
    That's obviously rare but as he works away a bit, he won't let me risk it bless him.

    lol,my rule is,don't write anything that would embaress your granny if she read it.

    And plus,if some psycho actually took the time and trouble to find out where i live,take a plane/boat over,got a smelly bus at the nearest town,travelled 30 miles on said smelly bus,then trudged over 4 more miles of even smellier field and bog to reach my house.....well good luck to them!

    Still,am looking forward to when I'm a big girl and can go in members only :lol:

    We found out the hard way when hills899 ( username on here) took it upon themself to look me up and pm me on another site as well and write to me stuff that has nothing to do with me or this person it has to do with Bernie and his ex and their daughter:? some people have no life really , its half the reason i dont post much stuff about our life on here atm
