    It is also very common on forums for the controversial threads or threads that cause the most 'what's up' kind of reaction to get the most replies. Human curiosity in many cases. That is what makes it interactive.

    People say if you don't like what you read don't respond if they respond in ways that seem contrary, but it is a forum. If the rules are not broken forums would whither up and die if people just stopped responding to clarify, out of curisoity, or to just say "huh"? This is like saying we can only respond to threads in which we are in total agreement with the OP and if that is the case, what is the point?It would be so boring and non beneficial that people would stop posting or coming to the forum altogether.

    And it goes without saying that people who post the most threads will have the most responses in nine out of ten cases simply because these are the threads that float to the top daily.

    I do agree with this, just b/c Rose has her myspace link on her profile and has provided pictures on here multiple times with a direct link, and her page isn't private. I'm sure her boyfriend is on myspace too, so it may be easy for someone to track him down.

    I agree...and that is a whole other question. But why single out Rose. I mean everyone is in a similar boat? Take yourself even. You have pics on this site. What if a friend of your parents came on here, found your pic, said "Hey, that's Laisla" and then read a thread about you thinking about selling sex. It may cause your parents some discomfort (it may not, I do not know their values).

    Do i think it is necessarily smart to plaster pics of yourself all over the site whilst at the same time disclosing sensitive info....no I don't but I won't question someone's right to do it.

    firstly the reason why i said that comment was because rose is one of the few members i know enough about to say something like that. if there was another member who was doing the same i would give in my 2 cents and see if that might help them.
    second, if i post pictures i do only of myself. i'm responsible for myself. when there are other people in the photos i colour their face in. nobody but a very few know my name. i'm not putting anybody else's safety or security at risk.
    you can't use the same argument for my case because the dynamics are different.
    lastly, i gave that comment in order for rose to think about it and reply back to me so that i could help her with advice. i'm not here to debate with you because this isn't a debate website.

    That's fine. As I said before if you were not implicating that she should not be posting because her b/f would not like it then I have no problem with it. When I read your comment it sounded to me that was what you were implicating and I wanted to make sure the OP understood that she had every right to post as she wants to post.

    Wow alot went on while I was gone.

    Yes, I post alot. But what would someone gain from tracking down my boyfriend?

    To what, tattle on me? Doesn't seem mature.

    I have the right to come to this site just like everyone else. A personal journel isn't for me, I would rather come here for advice. My boyfriend has no reason to ask me what I write here. Frankly, he doesn't care. He knows it's my business and he doesn't want to know.

    It's the same reason I don't ask him for his myspace password. He would give it to me, but I wouldn't want it. It would just drive another obsession, and I would want to look at his page everyday. And if he asked for my password in return, I wouldn't want to give it to him so it wouldn't really be fair.

    Posting here, is just like expressing my thoughts. You don't always want people you love to know your innermost thoughts. Expecially if if is at the concern for them.

    And although you may know "me" based on the posts I write here, that doesn't mean anyone is entitled to an opinion that really relates to ME.

    These are simply posts, not a reflection of my indviduality.

    Well if that is the only thing you get out of this thread then it is a good thing. As much as everyone has a right to decide how much identifying information they want out there, less is always better in my view. Once you leave a trail on the WWW it will always be there in one form or another and you just never know in future how that may come back to you.

    Yeah true. Atleast I'm not posting nude/pronographic pictures though.

    That would cause some harm
