Trying To Be Professional

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 5, 2017, 12:09 PM
   I'm not going to name names, but I have been talking with someone for a few days and it went from pleasant conversation to weird really quickly. I just want everyone to know though you may know my name, I do not give out personal information like addresses and phone numbers. I ask that people respect this. If you want to send gifts, money is preferred. There is a ko-fi account here: for doing that. 
  I bring this to your attention because one should never assume this is a safe place to be. The internet is not a great place. There are tons of great and good people on here. For all, I know this person was being nice. It is bad practice to assume that it is safe to share information like personal addresses, phone numbers, and bank accounts. 

  The reason I blocked them was that I made a firm stance and politely declined. They decided to become manipulative with me by using a certain sympathy tactic. I will not go into details on what was said. This person is also shopping for a girlfriend which makes the situation doubly weird. For me, this is a red flag. Looking on a site like this puts a red flag up for me, asking for addresses seconds this.

   Please be safe while using the internet and social media. I want to promote professional and safe internet practices. If you have questions about how to become safer online, or what to watch for with others, please don't hesitate to ask me!  I know there are a lot of you who may be afraid to talk to your parents about certain subjects, I've been there and done that. As a parent myself I can give you some guidance.

Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!
