Do you delete your posts to keep from being spied on?

I'll be honest, I do. I delete them after they go unresponsive for a couple of days. CM is like my diary, it's where I come to vent and talk and alot of the things I post are personal. Things I wouldn't want my mother or certain family members to see. Is that bad? I just don't like the thought of my conversations being out there for certain people to read and hold against me. I don't worry about anyone on CM, just my family. They're pretty crazy, lol. They would totally spy on me if they could.

  • Not unless I felt guilty. I have yet to delete a post.

  • I dont make posts that a family member would see or get upset about. If your that worried maybe you shouldn't post things like that at all?

  • I don't know anyone that would spy on me so I have never done it

  • Post things like what, exactly? I'm not saying I post anything bad or anything that would upset anyone, but there are some things I would rather certain people not see, simply because it's none of THEIR business. I'm more comfortable talking about certain things with my "friends" on CafeMom, because they can relate more and can see things from a more unbiased POV. I just don't like people being able to keep tabs on me. It's weird.

  • I'm not worried about anyone spying on it would be a different story if my MIL was on here....if that was the case I would probably only post Anon and I would STILL delete everything lol but thankfully she is computer illiterate! =)
