What are the feelings on "sharenting"? Parents sharing pictures of their children online that those children are less than happy to discover have been shared. Forever.

I hate it but sadly, there's nothing much children can do about it.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Parents should be very very very very very careful about what photos of their children they post to the Internet. Preferably none. It's one thing to find embarrassing kid pics on your mom's Facebook, it's a whole nother thing to find pedophiles looking through your embarrassing kid pics on your mom's Facebook. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

There's a level that is acceptable. 

For instance, a photo of parent&child playing scrabble, or cricket, or cooking etc is perfectly fine.

There are obvious times when the line is passed, and I think that starts with photos of kids swimming. Most kids won't care about that, but some definitely will. 

Some kids won't care later on, too, but banking on one's kid not caring is not a good idea.

Might it not start with something like a picture captioned, "Little ****'s first successful potty!!! :-)"?

Not necessarily an image you'd want your first potential boss finding when they Google you...

Isn't that exactly what I said I don't think should be posted? That sort of thing is inappropriate.

I do hope a child's first successful potty doesn't involve them swimming, @The Hole Got Fixed!!! a-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-george-10a-hard-days-night-george-10

I place a first successful potty as being less appropriate that swimming, but that's just me I guess.a-hard-days-night-george-10

In terms of the level of inappropriateness, first successful potty > swimming pictures.

Damn,  I've probably sent/received less than 100 PMs total over 9 years. 

I guess that means I don't believe in keeping anything private! two-virgins

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I have 66 in 18 threads..... most of those I would assume are apologies to Ahh Girl for upsetting someone. She's a forgiving person.

In any case nothing is personal in 'personal' messages....

Yeah I thought I had a lot...

I don't delete anything, and coupled with the fact that a lot of that is back-and-forth writing of songs between other BB-ers, I've racked up those messages quickly.

"4463 messages in 650 threads"

I know I accidentally deleted the first PM conversation Ron Nasty and I had. I may have deleted one or two more over the years.

And that doesn't count the email and Facebook conversations I've had over the years about the Forum. And phone calls. And personal visits.
