Sorry I wasnt real sure where to post this so it ended up here...
Let me start this off by saying Im a computer nerd and systems administrator (more computer nerd stuff), so if Im just over paranoid please let me know, but I know all information is retained and stored in the bits and binary world without exception.
So these threads we post in are open to view from the internet with no requirements username / password or otherwise. I see two sides to this.
1. it opens up the information we share to others who maybe searching the web for said information and we all seem to be about helping others. So thats great.
2. This is the adverse side. Any information we put up here (feelings, test results, complications, etc.) is openly and freely available to anyone who searches it out (ahh the paranoia just kicked in). Im not quite sure how I feel about this and its a real double edge sword with no black and white solution. Not that Im the resolution provider here, mind you. What does this mean? Well, if my work wanted to know indepth about my current health status, come on down! If my insurance company wanted to drop me for some random reason other than the cronic disease, these threads might hold a good excuse. Etc., etc.
How do you all feel about this? Am I just being paranoid?
All input is greatly appreciated.
