Sometime last year, I responded to the monthly question in a money & investing magazine, which happened to be "how have you handed an inheritance"? Then they contacted me about being in the magazine, and I was less thrilled with my real name & photo being used, but the author said she understood & would put in the minimum details possible. I figured the magazine would be read & forgotten. And then I got an e-mail that so many people made submissions, that they all couldn't be included .. and I was actually happy.
Then .. a few months ago, I Googled my name to see what popped up, and there was my submission, with a large photo & my town listed! I was not happy .. I didn't want my business on the internet forever like that! I wrote to the managing editor of the magazine & got no response. Then I was contacted by someone else doing an article, and I told her that I'd never respond to them again, because I couldn't get that piece about me off the internet, and the editor ignored me. She had it removed.
I don't need anything about my finances or physical shape held up in public anywhere!
Linda - I also think it would have been more courteous if you'd contacted me (Administrator) first, and asked if it was OK to join the group specifically to post this!
