Even though communities such as this are a good place for "listening ears" they are not a good place to go for situations that require proffesional advice on personal issues. You don't know any of these people any more then you know who did this to you. 1st thing you should have done was talk to your parents, minister or school councelors. This could have had serious results for you. I am glad you are alright.
The web is a great place , but it has it's share of over trusting people that fall prey to the not so nice.

Having noticed that this is posted in "The Jesters Court" even makes me wonder of the validity of the original post. Why post it in a place for humor?

Thank you all very much.

Shadows- You raise a good point. This website is in many ways no different than any other internet chat room. Everything has to be taken with a grain of salt. I'm definately more careful now after what happened, and that's why I have not been online as much for so long. Though, what is a world without some trust?
Ha, I'm not sure I even realized I was posting this in "The Jester's Court," because you're right in that this does not fit in a category for humor. I honestly cannot recall why I posted it here.

Be it life or the internet, you meet from the best of humanity to the worst.

As a child I do not remember warnings to watch out for strangers. The thing I do remember was my mother's terrible fear that I would fall through the hole of one of the many "out-houses" that were scattered around the Mid West at that time. Many were "WPA" projects from the 30's. I guess fears change as times do also.

There has been some radio ads in my area about this sort of thing. Online bullying is something that recently happened to my wife and daughter but we knew who the culprit was. I told them to just ignore their rantings and we just blocked the messages or deleted them with no response back whatsoever. They eventually just stopped when they found out that they couldn't get a rise out of us. Two months later the radio ads now say to do the same thing.
The reason this might be in jester court is because a couple of months ago the forum got a bit "scrambled" That may be what happened. I seem to remember this was originally in a different area.

I'm glad that you are alright, too! As pretty much everyone has said - in the spaghetti plate of life, you are bound to run into a few meatballs! Well, okay, they said it better but I kind of like the sound of that one.

I realize that in no way were you so trusting as to share personal, 'where am i' type information but we had a situation on the West coast of the land up above where a girl unknowingly provided enough information to some creep who drove to Canada and actually talked her into going with him! I think she was 13 and he was 22 or something like that. Fortunately they were caught at the border and he was arrested and she sent home - frightened and stunned at what had happened to her.

There is no question that there are lots of creeps on the internet and in chat groups and whatnot, but I would like to think that Celtic Radio is a very safe place for people to talk - just not too much!

I understand the feelings from your first post and I hope that you have been able to put it behind you. We all make mistakes and, much as others forgive us...we still need to forgive ourselves. Be of clear mind and give yourself a smile. biggrin.gif (It makes everyone else wonder what you know that they don't).
