Do you trust your friends?

Do you trust all the people they trust?

And those people, the people your friends trust, the people that they trust? Do you trust them?

Online Communities, even large ones, have connection lines anywhere and everywhere

Your locked post isn't locked. Your private rant is logged.

And the person you hate, who ruined your life, who stole your cupcake?

Somebody, somewhere, loves them.

Pretty much this.

I guess I have three categories of info.

1. Things that I don't mind anybody knowing. This stuff goes to Facebook, or Twitter, or unlocked DW posts. I probably don't think enough about how the different bits of info in this category could be aggregated to form things that I do mind everybody knowing, and this may bite me one day.

2. Things that aren't for public consumption, but aren't going to embarass me personally. Generally stuff that I wouldn't want a current or future employer to see on Google, but that I would stand behind if it came to it. This stuff goes to locked DW posts. This stuff would probably be a problem if I ever decided to run for office.

3. Stuff that I wouldn't want my friends to know; stuff that I'm ashamed of, perhaps. There isn't a lot of this, and as I'm not a natural innermost-thoughts diarist it tends to stay in my head anyway. On the occasions that I want to record it for whatever reason, I have a Word document on a Truecrypt partition. Mostly this document is actually full of stuff that is not secret, but is just too boring to share with my friends.

I don't try to break things down with any more resolution than this (e.g. filtered lists on DW) because I figure that it would get too complicated and I'd get it wrong. Also, I can't be bothered.
