Have you folks ever googled your user name used here on Diabetic Connect? You might even try your real name as well. When I google my user name "richard157" I get about 10 pages of ifo about me. My profile info on several sites is there. So people can see where I live, etc. I am a member of eight diabetes support groups. Some of the posts I have made on several of those sites are on Google. There is NOTHING I can do about that. That is why I am careful to never say anything I do not want to appear on Google for the whole world to see. I know someone who was banned from one of my sites. If you google his name you can see that he was banned.
I noticed the discussion today concerning our new president. If you respond and say something negative it may pop up on Google. You might also try MSN and Yahoo too and find even more posts you have made on the sites to which you belong.
There are "spybots" that comb all the websites and grab certain info and transfer it to Google, Yahoo, etc. So we have lurkers named "Googlebot", "Yahoobot", etc. They are there waiting. Be careful what you say friends.
Hmmm! I wonder if this post will appear on Google??? Lol!
