@bluefrog33:  For me, personally, I wouldn’t say anything on here that I wouldn’t be comfortable owning up to in real life to those people. I have said a lot, and I have a few rant posts, specifically with my MIL, and I wouldn’t hesitate to tell her to her face if I were “found” and questioned.

@bluefrog33:  Lol I wouldn’t really want her to see my posts (and I most certainly wouldn’t show her) but if she stumbled across them, I’d be honest and tell her there isn’t anything in them that isn’t true. I often spare her from my sarcasm and bitchy comebacks becuase, at the end of the day, she is my MIL and I need to try to get along with her. Lord knows it ain’t easy!

I don’t say anything online that I wouldn’t say in real life, so… I don’t care if people find my posts.

I’m pretty sure I’ve hated on one particular person on here, and TBH given the chance (and a bit of liquid courage) I’d say all that and more to his face. But not even acknowledging his existence during family functions speaks volumes, I think. 

So, I don’t care if anyone on here knows me…though if they do, I’d like to know, I guess.

@Hyperventilate:  ditto. I know for a fact that I have friends who are on here but I dont know their usernames, not sure if they know mine, but my ring is pretty unique so if they see it they’ll know its me. Whatever, I try to keep it real on the internets so I’m not too concerned.  The only thing that might be considered weird is that I post about our jobs and income, but its not like a secret amongst our social circle.  We don’t talk about it because, well, it doesnt come up, but I would share details with people if they asked so im not really even concerned about that.

I’m amazed at how careless some people are on here with their privacy. I recently linked one account here to a secondary account because, coincidentally, both users were moving to different places at the same time, in the same general area of the same state, to similar locations (apartments of a certain size/houses, etc.). Wedding dates were very similar, etc. So, that’s something to keep in mind for the folks going incognito with a second “anonymous” account. I’d never out anyone, but still. If I can do it, so can someone else.

As long as you are VERY careful about your posts, it’s one thing if you mention your true wedding date, where you live, your first names (although I’ve seen several go all-out with all kinds of personal information).

At the end of the day, you can’t go on a forum like this and bash all of your relatives and expect it’s not going to come up if you spammed the place with “Michelle Smith and Brian Johnson’s big day! 10-10-10!” for months, then write about what an unrepentant bitch your mother-in-law is.

Usernames I have on different sites are always nonsensical and unrelated to anything I am or do personally. So, no one’s ever found me here.
