Can someone please explain to me....

What is going on around here?  I'm just logging on~have had almost no time to even lurk lately~and am trying to figure out why everyone's changing their names.

TIA

  • People are scared about strangers having too much personal info about them. There have been numerous AE people around and then there was a post on the parenting board about a woman whose DH was contacted by another nestie. They were able to search for her and find her DH's work email.

  • I don't know the story with AJ (with the Incredibles chickie in her siggy) but Cyndi had some issues with privacy violations and nest stalkage turned FB abuse. That's as much as I know.
  • Word

    I've been gone most of the day, I'm not hip to the drama and hooplah. Sad

  • And what Robin said.
  • I remain elegantly clueless, as usual, to most of it - but I figure that whatever people need to do to feel secure and comfy is always a good thing.

  • Hmm....exactly what kind of strangers do we have around here?  This is all getting so bizzare.

    This board is out in the wide open, completely insecure and unprotected. You don't even need a log in to view it, anyone can, so really, anyone can see what's said here.  It's kosher to practice caution and not say or publish anything you don't want the entire world knowing.

  • It's hard to know. I am sure there are plenty of lurkers that we don't know about.

    I totally agree, but I'm not on here enough to keep up with everyone's name changes~frustrating ;(

  • I'm aware of the fact that it's a public board...just not getting the whole nest/FB thing.  Are these incidents related?  Or is it totally random that multiple regulars here are getting messed with?
  • For some people, they just wanted new SNs that they liked better or that didn't have their names in them. 

    C ran into some issues with being stalked/harassed here & on FB. But that was after she changed her SN. I don't know if she's going to change it again or not? I'm still catching up on posts from today. :) 

    "AJ" is a reg who changed her SN after a post crossed paths with her RL and wanted to lay low for awhile. She offered PM explanation to anybody who wanted to know what happened, but then got outed by an AE called thebigbad who caused various other drama. 

    I think that pretty much summarizes most of it.  

    ETA: On this board anyway. On the national and/or tri boards, there was a nestie whose DH got e-mailed about some of her posts and GBCN'd. Recently there was also a blog (by an ultra-conservative parent using some pretty wacky corporal punishment on a toddler) linked on multiple boards that led to some of the tri-ers apparently going nuts, posting some identifiable information such as the woman's location and reporting the woman to CPS, calling talk shows to try to get them interested in exposing her, etc. Pretty nuts all around.

  • I had been planning to change my name before all the wierdness started.  With DD getting older and not having the most common of names I was concerned having her name as my screenname.  I made mine easy with my real name in the screen name as a generic source.
  • Sadly, my life is so boring, I have no one to stalk me or who finds my life interesting.

  • I didn't change mine for security reasons.  I was just tired of my old name. I'm considering changing it again though since I found out the guy I was dating was watching me on here and threw a temper tantrum about it and got all his friends to harass me on FB. One of them threatened me that she was joining here too so she could give me another peice of her mind.  Any inkling that she did and I'll come back with an annonymous name.  I don't need that kind of BS.

    The pychos are just coming out of the woodwork this week.

  • K, Cyn, that is ridiculous.  Is he going to start writing your name on the bathroom wall soon?  Or maybe have the kids gang up on you at the playground?

    Women talk.  We shoot the breeze, we share information and perspectives, and we vent.  Nothing anyone can do about it, nothing anyone can do to change it, it happens - whether IRL and/or on a message board.  If you can't hang with the adults, go back to freakin' grade school.

    Sorry - but I'm really miffed on your behalf.  I think anyone who comes on here with the intent of giving you a "piece of her mind" is in for a rude awakening.

    Waiting for some innocuous creativity... I'll let you know.
