Well I have made it back.Its been a long week, and I am not one bit refreshed for next week.Too hot and not a Wimbledon invite in prospect.I am however going to the Goodwood Festival of speed on friday which should be good.

It may have come to your attention that I have removed my face from your screens.

Hopefully by now AdultFriendFinder will have allowed at least one of my replacement shots, but that remains to be seen.I have opted for a body shot due to a fact that was bought to my attention last week.(A big thank you to the party concerned)

Whilst I thought only people signed up to friendfinder could view profiles it now appears we have a much larger audiance and a simple Google search will bring up not only our profiles, but also our blogs and access to them.Whilst I am not so naive to think that there wasnt some risk in signing up to here, I wasnt aware that anyone in the world can have access to these details.

My initial thoughts were that I shouldnt be too worried as there was nothing to link my handle with me if you didnt know I was on this site.However a face picture could do just that if you came across me via a google search.

What did come as a shock was the fact that on checking the google search also bought up information on discussion boards I had visited eleswhere.These I was unaware of.Did you know that these come up on searches?

It all goes to show how careful you have to be in using this medium to post your views.I am sure you are all aware of the people who have been sacked through comments made on certain old friends sites, as well as what can happen if an email goes astray.You will also be aware that some on this site and eleswhere will use your photos as their own.Because of this I wanted to post on this subject to remind you of the pitfalls and to urge you to take care.

It really is scary what you can find out with minimal effort via the internet.

So thats why my pic has changed.If any of you do want a copy of the original feel free to ask.

The rest of you inquisitive ones can high tail it to Google to see what comes up!

i hope anyone reading this will reconsider being a paid member.

If someone has the time to sit around reading blogs to decide what's offensive, then someone has the time to make this site google proof.

I googled myself. *sniff* Nothing. Nada. Zip.

Well, I did find a geneolgy from my grandmother's family that has a brief mention of my name and who I descend from.

And as for my AdultFriendFinder name, this site and Alt are the only sites I use this ID on. So, unless someone knows the ID, they aren't going to find it.

Now, if I used this as my email or something it might be different, but even that ID doesn't pull up anything, and I have a geocities web site with that in the meta tags and all that jazz.

So I don't think it makes any difference if your AdultFriendFinder ID can be googled. Unless you use the same ID all over the place and someone you know would be inspired to search for you. Kinda psycho and creepy then if you ask me.

Sorry, I find I've babbled. Time for me to go to bed.

About a week ago I took all of my direct face shots off of the site for the same exact reason. I was doing a search for a movie I was looking for an pulled up several profiles on AdultFriendFinder, including my own and low and behold....right into my profile i went. No sign in, no password. So I have adjusted my site accordingly.

I am actually very upset this is the case and have written AdultFriendFinder on the matter and would suggest you do the same. This is a public site....however it should be private to those that are willing to pay the money to view. I mean even kids can get access to these pages, posts and pictures. I mean whats the point of paying for a private site if its not private?

I dont know. I am not sure how to handle i tbut I will figur e it out. Smart of you to notice and act !!!!

Love to you and your cool dad to another.

I knew about the google search. I just did mine again and like hbgirl said I show up on Lesbian personals, penthousehookup, sexatfirstclick, indian and interracial. Guess that explains all the off the wall email I get. I signed on under passion dot com. Never logged onto those other sites. That's sucks!
