    I’ve been a member here since 2015 I believe ..I’ve never hid who I’m where I live, or posted photos of myself when I was young then claimed it was me NOW in the photos.
    I usually post an avatar of what I like ..flowers ..animals ..or my current one is a hug for all who are felling the effects of the current predicament we all find our selfs in .

    I’m wary of posting any personal to close to home info as I stupidly did once when we had our home on the market
    I posted what the real estate agent had said about our home ..and a person copied that info and put it to google which bought up my home location / address with photos ..yes once you list a hime for sale it’s there for the world to see however I was most annoyed a member of a forum would do that

    It would be way to hard to keep track of a character and not trip up over time.

    True, but you have to pay attention to catch the mistakes. Most people don't pay that much attention.

    If I wanted to be someone else, I'd have taken up acting.

    I get that sometimes too. I am not as accomplished as you were in any one thing but I have done a lot of things and, on Facebook, in particular, that seems to serve as a red flag. When I talk about making paper bags for a living, or teaching college, or working as a youth minister, or doing web design and SEO, some idiot will say something like, "Make up your mind. I thought you were a paramedic," as if they had caught me in a lie.

    I even had someone do that in a cat group on Facebook, when I mentioned that I had recently lost a cat who was 28 years old. She said, "I'm going to have to call you on that one. I don't believe you," as if I care whether someone I don't know on a Facebook cat group believes me about the age of a dead cat. Well, I guess I do care because it's annoying. Why would I lie about the age of my cat?
