Hi Fmily,

Earlier Today, I went to print out the Sucralose/burning tongue article that I had found online, to bring to my Rheumy for my appointment. What I found was my WebMD discussion instead. I clicked on it and it brought me directly to the original post and all the replies. I had been signing my real name at the end of most all of my posts.

After seeing that on google I will stick to my screen name from now on. I can't believe how dangerous the internet can be, even on our beloved WebMD site.

~hugs to all

Yes, any time you put something on a site that is open to the public, as is the case here at WebMD, it is searchable.

So that's why it's a good idea to protect your identity (with our help; we do remove posts which share phone numbers and snail mail addresses, for example).
