Default Busted?

Has anyone from C-D forums been busted by someone from beyond cyber space? I know the chances are slim to none, but what if you're from a small town/city, you give out enough self-identifying information, and someone knows who you are? I was just wondering...

LOL..has this happened to you or someone you know who is on CD? I actually thought once of recommending this forum to a family friend but changed my mind.

Not yet I do wonder sometimes, though, if anyone I know or know of even knows of this site, and if so, could identify me just by the things I say or even do online!

Good idea!

That's why I wouldn't post pictures (well, I don't post pictures anywhere online) and I'm careful not to mention my nationality (kind of rare breed ). Limits my participation on some threads, but better safe than sorry. Feel no need to be identified too easily.

It wouldn't be a bad idea if I shared this site with others, as CDF would probably bring them as much happiness and fun I get from it. I also try not to relate too many bad experiences about the people in my life therefore I am somewhat safe. I do mention my hubby enough but he knows about CD and has laughed and guffawed at some of the stuff I tell him about.

That statement does require the little emote used.

Let's hope she isn't bored enough to go back through all 1k plus posts if she does

To the OP, I actually do live in a small town, but I am alright with that as I am pretty straight forward with my posts. So, other than my mil, am not worried about getting busted for anything.
