Think of Grandma

Here’s a helpful hint. Never do anything online you won’t do in front of your Gran.
Seriously. This stuff can come back and bite you.

The embarrassment and harm to your reputation can be severe.

Example: well, how about “High Tail Hall“, often referred to as HTH.

This is an odd little site, dedicated to, well animated furry porn. No, I’m not joking.

Embarrassing enough if you’re a member but what if the entire membership was made public? Along with the normal issues of identity theft, increased chance of spam and phishing, the members on this list are also prone to blackmail.

That is exactly the position facing all 411,000 members of HTH.
So again, I repeat, it ain’t with it my friend. If you wouldn’t do it in front of your Nan, don’t do it online.
