Recently, I'd joined a new site, (forum), and to be honest I was a bit surprised when I rec'd an email right away! Now that turned out to be a good thing! A friend of my son's, had seen my name, knew we were related and contacted me. (they work together) Since then, we've had good conversations and will be meeting for coffee soon. He is a "LEO" and has numerous friends in the same situation. That's the good news! Now for the "rest of the story" In just a few days a warning was issued, re: 2 "spooks" on their site, and they'd posted a copy of the "who is". It was disturbing! The origin was from the State Department from Washington D.C.... Hmmmmm...makes ya wonder! Today, there are new warnings that they have 4 suspected "spooks" on their site. Weird! Maybe it's just me, BUT, if you have drawn that type of attention, something is wrong somewhere, or someone is playing a game.... Either or, it makes no difference to me... I wished them all well, and cancelled my account entirely! I see that there are requests for "WHO" has what, and How much of it! Not a good trend! Lists for needs and supplies are great, and we all could use more, as not one of us can possibly think of everything....! But, it is NOT a good idea to go about posting what you have personally, in amounts and such, as you can be traced just as easily as they traced their "Spooks"! As I have said they forgot the basics of "OPSEC" and the old WWII saying: "Loose lips, sink ships"!
