it seems like all social network sites are under attack by creepers. To avoid other messages and strange things like that I would suggest putting yours on private. I have to do that for my myspace and facebook so i don't get spammed to death and sent ridiculous faux letters like that lol

Couldn't you set a password and have it in your sig here? That seems like it would cut down on the random creepiness.

I put a password on mine after seeing LHCF being discussed on a gossip blog. In some of the comments, people were also mentioning how the women on sites like LHCF, nappturality, and this one are so militant, which I'm sure drove some of the readers to the site to take a look. Anybody can come here and see our fotki and password in the signatures, so I just removed my fotki from my signature altogether. Maybe I was being a bit paranoid, but I didn't want to log onto that site or any other and see a picture of myself. It just reminded me that my pictures are out there for the world to see. My pictures aren't in high demand and I rarely update anyway.

Right, GlammourGirl. There are varying levels of security, the tightest being no pics at all, of course. Then there's having a fotki with a password which people here must PM you to get. Then the password in your sig, and so on.

Everyone needs to decide for themselves what they feel comfortable doing, I guess. I change mine up a lot, depending on what I'm doing with my hair and if I want to share that, and also the tone of the board, which changes all the time.

For example, I recently removed my pw from my sig, because of all the trolls around here lately.

Yes...we have beautiful women on here but this is not a dating site. This person is sick!

Ok...when I initially read this I thought he got in your fotki through our site. I still feel comfortable with putting a link from our site.

I've seen a message from "Mark" in another curly girl's fotki.... I just passed it off as spam... But hey - do what you gotta do to protect your privacy!
