Once again, Barbara Ling puts fingerpad to keyboard and we are rewarded with this.
Today, I’d like to focus on Reputation Manglement, otherwise known as Jeepers, that foot is tasty! Let me stick it in my mouth! Now, gentle reader, I’d like to ask you to sit down, close your eyes (well, close your eyes AFTER you’ve read the next instructions) and say to yourself:
The Internet Is Eternal!
Got that? Okay, next, repeat to yourself:
There is NO privacy online!
Done yet? Next, internalize:
Once posted online, my words are FOREVER out of my control!
Whew! You can open your eyes now. Wasn’t that a great exercise?

Read the whole thing in Barbara's inimitable style here.

Maureen, this was a great post to share! I read Barbara's blog and love her style. Online and off, it pays to think before speaking (or typing!). At least verbally, the words cannot be read back verbatim days, weeks and months later. When you speak online you are making a serious commitment to those words!

Ami, Only because I am so intimately familiar with the dilemma - having put my own foot in my own mouth so many times!
