    Done something online you regret?

    Triggered by a question posed just hrs ago - merely a member mouthing off at another member in the form of a question. Whilst I flagged it - it reminded me of Alec Bladwins outburst on twitter and other ranty things he's done and regretted moments later. I figure that we've all done it at least once - now is yr chance to get the embarrassment/regret off your chest. And maybe even make amends?

    Swore extensively and unnecessarily on Facebook hmm I'm not proud of it, mainly because of the repercussions of my actions, but life goes on. Even though stuff on the internet is apparently never deleted, I lose no sleep over it now smile

      FB has more repercussions than we think. I've done something similar and received a telling off from an ex boss (who was an ex boss at the time too!). Not my finest work, learnt my lesson! But don't lose sleep now

    haha I had nosey neighbors that were gossiping and telling untrue stories about our family. They were even gossiping about my kids and such and this was not long after my son had been injured in a bus accident and I was under a lot of stress. Not wanting to deal with these people directly I went on FB where I know that if I said something the word would be spread and I went on a long tirade about how people of low intellect gossip about others without verifying facts and that just because someone is different than you doesn't mean they deserve to be the target of simpleton behavior.  I also proceeded to tell how my life is an open book and that we are indeed agnostic/atheist vegans living in a farm town. We are unapologetic in our hippie ways, don't hurt anyone, stay out of the way and are the first people who would come to the aid of any of the miserable people living and gossiping around us.  I also said say what ever you want about me, but you leave my kids alone - It was a very blistering statement and I felt a bit embarrassed initially - BUT it was effective and I have not had problems with neighbors gossiping about my kids.  One person had the nerve to say that my children belong to another guy etc. completely untrue - but had my kids heard that tripe it could have been harmful.  I was p#$#$ and I vented in a public venue - not my finest moment but it worked! smile

      Often it's not our finest moment, but it stems from concern for someone - yr kids, family etc. Glad it did the trick tho, even if it wasn't yr finest moment!

    I did unfriend a lady on Facebook once and did not really think it thru. I am still wishing I could write her, so yes...I do regret it, but did it because I was hacked and afraid someone who did it would get all my Facebook info and hack her too!!

      Best of intentions though. Have you tried to look her up again? People I've had to unfriend seem to find me!

    My mistake was using the same password on each of my accounts.  My autistic daughter knew what my paypal password was and went to order a World of Warcraft account.  She thought it was $3.50 but in fact it was $350.  It messed up my bank account for .about a week before I got things straightened out

    Yes! Talk Politics on Hubpages. 

    They used to say "never  discuss history or religion in polite company" for a reason... They need to add, or online... bad for your blood pressure and your family could starts worrying that you are losing it, if you start talking to your laptop.
