Hey all, I suppose I should post my hellos too....

So yeah, everyone calls me Golly (or Golli if you want to be really Persian about it...), I'm from DC.
I graduated in '04, and I'm looking forward to Drew in the Fall...

I'm into music, mainly, and all things pertaining to music. Also traveling, writing, languages, going out, things of that nature.

Feel free to check out myspace, (http://www.myspace.com/iceprincess2250)
or hit me up on AIM (IcePrincess2250).

Talking Hey!

Hey everyone, I'm Katie from Worcester, Massachusetts. I'm the only one from my class heading to Drew as a Freshman, although one of my good friends applied and got accepted, but went to Dartmouth instead. Oh well, she'll miss out, lol.

My Big Sis here is Casey Talbot, and feel free to IM me anyone. I'd love to get to know any fellow freshmen.

AIM: Almarealyatule (dont ask, its a different language)

MSN: MoonAngel20@msn.com

I'm on Facebook too, so feel free to look me up as well.

Exclamation A word of Caution

Hey guys, one of your friendly Orientation Tri-Chairs, Gary, here. Just a word of warning for you. These are public forums that can be viewed by anyone, so you might not want to be posting AIM screen names and other personal details. Instead, if you want to chat with someone, try sending them a Private Message (click the bubble next to their name in a post and select "Send private message...) with your screen name. See you all in the fall!

A "Public" Forum is no worse than Myspace or Facebook.

You can also opt to have your screen name show up to everyone by adding it under the User Options (see the little AIM icon in the corner of people's names?). How is typing it out in a thread any different?

Now email is a different story -- often times people set up searches for emails in forums, and then send them spam.

Actually a public forum is a little worse, at least with Facebook as Facebook requires a valid college email address to access and you can set it so that only people from your school can view your profile and contact information. And yes, you are right that having your screen name show up to everyone is not much different typing it in a thread, but I meant the warning to encompass that as well. If people do not want everyone on the internet to be able to see their screen name, then they should be sure not to put that information out there. Sometimes people get lulled into a false sense of safety with things like these as they assume that it is only members of the Drew community reading it when that is not necessarily true (the same thing happens with livejournals all the time where people put things in it and it ends up being a huge deal because they did not realize how many people could see it). I just wanted to remind people of that. Thanks for the input!

Realistically, once you make that information available to 3,000+ people at your school, there is no reasonable expectation that isn't equivalent to publicly available.

If you don't want something to be available, you shouldn't publish it.

Can you personally vouch for everyone that happens to have a Drew uLgoin account and thus a Drew email address that can be used to get a Facebook account? Trusting 3,000 arbitrary users who have whatever relationship (which may be a very tangential relationship in some cases, contractors, consultants, etc.) with Drew, where you wouldn't want that information to be generally available is a mistake.

I'd generally advise that you either decide to publish certain information or not, but drawing an arbitrary line around Drew (or more to the point, people with Drew uLogin accounts) doesn't gain much in terms of privacy.

ps -- Dear Mods, I think we should cut the 10 character post limit! Love, Golly
