Some of you may have noticed some posts by "newbies" in one of our threads. I just wanted to take a minute to remind all of you that what you post here is PUBLIC... I always ask myself when I post here if I would be okay with my Mom or a co-worker seeing it? If the answer is no, it probably is better for me not to post it on the main forum. If I REALLY feel like I want to share it, I post it in the private forum (which gives you some added protection, but remember there are still ways for that information to get out if anybody who is a member of the group chooses to be dishonest). I love that we are all getting closer and trusting each other more, but wanted to put out the reminder that it is always good to have your guard up... you never know who the crazies are out there Also, if you are ever concerned about a post that is written in our DDC for whatever reason, there is an icon in the top right hand corner of every post that says "report post" if you click this, it will immediately send an alert to the mods and will also give you the opportunity to attach an explanation for why you are reporting it. Use this tool if you ever feel uneasy about any posts in our DDC or elsewhere on JM. Love you ladies!

Hmm, I didn't think about that when I posted the link to my facebook. I think I'll delete that.

Not sure the posts that are being mentioned but it's a great reminder!! I often catch myself as thinking of this DDC as being our little "world" until I see someone I don't recognize posting and then I realize again that anyone can read our posts... lol. Thanks for the reminder!!

As for photos, you have to have a JM acct. to see any photos or siggies, but all written posts are visible to anybody and everybody.

Yeah noticed that definitely on Altmommy's post today and that definitely sent some warning bells off for me but I don't have any sacred info posted anyways. Thanks for letting us know how to report any suspicious post. Never noticed that button.

So I was very concerned about this and had brought it up. I even brought it up to my fiance. I had read him what was posted from who I thought was suspicious and he said it sounds like a forumb0t. These are b0ts that "sniff" forums and then search the net for keywords from the post, they will even make an account to post what it found on the forum. The purpose is to generate advertisements linked to those keywords. I Googled forumb0t and found that they have software you can buy to do this. Kinda crazy! From the way their posts sound I think that is what they are and more then likely mods will notice and their posts will be removed. But there can still be creepers, so I will be watching what I post and once I can I will be posting in the private forum.
