Creepy Weirdness, part 2  
Whatever happened to basic politeness?? Socially acceptable behavior?

Wow - I've discovered that in this digital day and age basic politeness has gone *completely* out the the window. Apparently it's normal operating procedure to hunt people down and gather as much information as possible based on a mere interest. To spend hours doing this sort of thing. To follow not a single link that might indicate a bit of intrigue, but to follow dozens, amassing as much data as possible. After exchanging on the order of 15 words with the person in question.

Even scarier is that it seems a bunch of people see no problem with this approach...


Perhaps I was raised in a more genteel and enlightened manner. This isn't how it works in my world.

(see comments for thread (and replies) started by the person who behaved in this manner)

...thinking the full background check idea might be acceptable after all...

I am so happy I bothered to meet my Hubby after it felt like he was following me trying to find me. At the time I had no Idea that he was a sweet guy he was a Dom off alt.com that emailed me and was pressuring me to meet him. For all I knew a dangerous man. Another poly friend met him before I did and she says it like it is and I asked her straight out what she thought of him. lol She got on my case about being paranoid lol That she was the one that invited him to our local poly group. Lol She told me what can go wrong from meeting him in a very public place. So knowing she would not mislead me I did I almost passed up the Love of my life due to fear! I will always be thankful to her for knocking some sense in me.
