OMGnotagain – I’m really glad you did post what you did. It was obviously what made this all come to a head, so thank you. Hopefully you will post more in the future!March 5, 2008 at 2:03 am #616478
JoB…you referred to someone named WS Mom2….I’ve met WSMom in the flesh, so I know she is not this person…is there a WS Mom2 also?
Am I confused?
Kayleigh…I’m a real person, honest, and the information that I provide with my name is real…honest – lol….and I love working on backs and necks :)
Yep…creepy…March 5, 2008 at 2:09 am #616479
JanS – There was a post from WSMom2 in the thread “My Say” that was from WSMom2. The webmaster concluded that this was the same person as lattemom, so their identity has since been concealed or deleted from the forum. Now I think it just says “Anonymous”. Anyways, hope that clears it up a little.March 5, 2008 at 2:17 am #616480
thanks…I was gone all afternoon and missed most of the fun…thanks for clearing that up, NewRes :)March 5, 2008 at 2:30 am #616481
I’m still here, I thought about changing my name to avoid confusion with the ever shape shifting lattemom, but I’m sticking with WSMom. I still feel upset about Lattemom and her problems. I sure hope somehow she will get some help (for her daughter’s sake if not her own.)March 5, 2008 at 2:44 am #616482
wow, thanks for all the info. I always thought cinnamon and lattemom was the same person causing problems. Is there any way that only registered users can read the forums? I’m sure she’s reading this right now.March 5, 2008 at 2:50 am #616483
Bonnie – That’s a great point. I bet you’re right that she/he/it is reading this right now. I think the best thing to do is not ever mention her or this situation again. Let’s just stop talking about her or whatever she is. She’s gone from the forum, she should be gone from our posts. Eventually, she will stop reading if there is no mention of her.March 5, 2008 at 3:06 am #616484March 5, 2008 at 3:16 am #616485March 5, 2008 at 3:30 am #616486
i too, am real. there appears to be another “k” out there though. only reason it bothers me is that i don’t want anyone to think those are my posts. i have been a devout supporter and user of WSB since the beginning. i use this blog for news, shared information and community. i think that’s why it exists. let’s all do our best to respect the folks who spend the days keeping this blog going. the best way to do that is to maintain some decorum. thanks to all who post useful information here! i am grateful!March 5, 2008 at 3:57 am #616487
I have to admit that i feel a tremendous amount of sadness for this woman and her family.March 5, 2008 at 4:29 am #616488
For the family, but also for anyone that might have to interact with her.March 5, 2008 at 5:11 am #616489
Good grief, I go to work for a day and look what happens??? I thank the moderators and the vocal majority who banded together to make something good happen. It’s easy for these communities to turn into a shouting match; eventually no one listens except the shouters. (That’s probably the point).
Now, when’s the next informal get-together?March 5, 2008 at 2:42 pm #616490
back to some things mentioned earlier in this rant. can people find you based on your isp address? i am confused when people say they have that info based on the fact that you have made comments. am i naive? i thought that information was blocked. it just makes me nervous that people can find that out. any help?March 5, 2008 at 3:00 pm #616491
No one sees IP addresses but me, your site owner. They’re recorded, as is website IP, for everyone who leaves a forum post or site comment. This makes it possible to search and crossreference “hmm, 11.222.333.444 is behind those five user names.” Now of course there are some flaws in the system, such as the fact that your IP address MAY change in the future – Comcast switches ours every so often, for example – or your ISP may have a variable IP for you. But it’s a helpful tool for a variety of reasons. One last note: If you didn’t already know this – whenever you send e-mail, the recipient can get the sending IP address from its “headers.” So don’t EVER think that you’re sending e-mail to anyone “anonymously.” Most e-mail software or webmail readers hide the headers but they can be revealed with a simple click somewhere. Try it – you may be a little confused at first because there will typically be several IPs in there, including one for the mail router, but one of the numbers is that for the original IP the sender was using.March 5, 2008 at 3:20 pm #616492
glad you guys know your stuff! it’s all confusing to me. just as long as they don’t see names of any other info to “find” people. i understand the IP address info. hoping the security on my laptop helps!March 5, 2008 at 9:47 pm #616493
I don’t know this stuff either, so have a probably dumb question or two. We have several networked computers, plus kids (our own and visitors) who use wifi in our house. Does the IP address vary depending on which computer I’m on? Is it attached to me personally or does everyone in our house have the same?
