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 think you handled it wonderfully and it shows that your intention no matter what you recive in return was/is honest. If someone feels like you are stalking them or some such thing all they have to do is read your profile and they will see that you are a kind and gental soul that is only seeking others that are the same. I think people tend to be very scared of things that "go bump in the night". So I feel like for you personally it was the right thing to do and I respect the way you handled it...Good Job!
