  • lol there are crazies everywhere! Just be careful how much info you reveal, & I'm pretty sure IP address can be traced to your address but only the actual website people have access to that

  • I am an odd one! I have been on Cafe Mom for almost a year and have never had or come across a stalker.

  • actually unfortunatly I wouldnt be so sure even about the IP address thing anymore. My friends brother knows alot about computers and hackin into them. You can pretty much get any ones IP address from anywhere =(
    I dont think you have to worry that much here. Especially becuase you can simply look someone up on google or the white pages and find EVERYTHING OUT about that person. The internet is not really a safe place to be anymore =\

  • I don't know that any member would actually go so far as to stalk you in "real" life, but in this virtual forum there are those that will follow you around and harass you.

  • I was once in newcomers where there was an argument going on between a mom and another mom who actually had her address and drove 3 hours to her home because the first mom said "we should hang out sometime"! The second mom was actually complaining about how she left her kids with someone and rented a car etc....... it was creepy.

  • in my breastfeeding groups there is a breastfeeding "adviser" (his spelling). He pms moms that have asked for help with nursing, and asks them if they want to chat, then lead the conversation elsewhere.

    creepy!!

    I met a pretty creepy chick on here once . . . . won't go into details, but needless to say I avoided her like the PLAGUE!!
