      no, that is not what I meant. Just remembering going to an expo before my husband had SCI and the booths that venders had set up showing displays of ramps, technology and things for disabled people.

        Grosssss! So, if you join a SCI group on FB does that expose you to the creeps if you're setting are "private"? My settings are private and with exception of a couple people from here, I don't friend people I don't know in person because of pictures of our Granddaughters, but have received private messages in the "other" folder from men with lame pickup lines. I've wondered how they can see my name or page!

        Thanks for the thread, Ekondo!

            The only place I try to help out is the unit for wounded vets at Fort Bragg. I bring my in-training for service dog there for socialization and also to get me out of the house. But They know and trust me there and I am an alumni of the center, so I guess it's not as creepy. Between the dog and my trike, I get a lot of curious people. While that is both physically and emotionally draining on me, it does help with my social rehabilitation.

            I'm not on Facebook. I just can't stand the constant bombardment of information I see on my wife's account. And I'm still too damn paranoid about putting personal information online. If I was, I'd strictly limit friends to people I had met in real life. Heck, even my alumni information for college doesn't have my phone or email. If someone really wants to reconnect with me, they can write a letter.

            I know I have trust and paranoia issues, but the online threat is real and widespread. It is absolutely scary how easy it is to find out information about people. Last time I was interviewed by a newspaper reporter, I was able, just from he byline, to find out her address (and use google street view), her kids' names and dates of birth, where she had lived and when, and many pictures. All without paying a cent. It's frightening. I've done my best to remove my online identity, but even having a common name I still show up more than I am comfortable with and with just a few details that are far to widely known, will show up near the top on some google searches.

            I'm an old man and not the target for these trolls, but if you are attractive or female, you can easily be stalked. Even someone you piss off can stalk you.

              Charlotte's Web - Once you join a Facebook Group, all the member's can see your posts EVEN IF YOU BLOCKED THAT PERSON.

              Facebook Group's are OPEN, CLOSED, or SECRET.

              OPEN - EVERYONE can see everything posted along with the member list.
              CLOSED - Only members can see the content, but EVERYONE can see the member list.
              HIDDEN - Only members can see the content and member list.

              Clearly a Hidden Group is the safest. But the problem exists when the other members of a hidden group are TROLLS/PREDATORS. In that case, every member of the Group is at-risk because the Troll Member feeds the information to other Trolls. The Troll Member also invites his Troll Friends to join the Group.

              As a result, a Hidden Group can become overwhelmed with Trolls. These Trolls sit in the background to escape notice while they devour information and look for vulnerabilities.

              The hidden They Walk We Roll Group on Facebook is an example of this situation. There are in the range of 50-75 Trolls in this Group of 400 members for spinal cord injury. The members of the Group happily post about their sex lives, bathroom routines, and psychological states without realizing that every post is seen by all these Trolls.

              The ADMINS do nothing to remove the Trolls, thus putting all the members at-risk. The ADMINS are in such denial about the Trolls that they continually add new Trolls to the Group.

                This link brings you to an actual attempt by Troll Courtney Jasper to "groom" (gain trust) in a woman with SCI for future victimization.

                Take a look at her (HIS) friends. What is strange about the list?

                  What is strange is a lot of my friends are on HIS friends list. I do add people all the time I do not know in person..as that is how you get to know new friends, but I do not add obvious fakes like Jasper. It is really not that hard to screen them. Like you said Erik, if my friends are friending them, they then gain access to others..don't friend the TROLLS people! You give them legitimacy.

                  Frankly, this is a huge issue, the fake profiles. Catfish has shown this in their documentary. SOOO many people are living these fake existences to gain access to others they would not be able to under their real identity. Sad that so many feel their own true selves are NOT good enough and I hope these people get help for this problem. This kind of life cannot be truly fulfilling and healthy. Get help, delete these profiles, find a way to have a healthy, loving relationship without resorting to deception. YOU will never be truly happy living a life of lies, and deception. If you are a devo, just be yourself and if you get rejected, welcome to the real world! We all get rejected and we don't resort to lying and being who we are not to gain trust and attention. You will eventually find love, you have to keep trying and be a good person. If you want to use these fake profiles only for sexual gratification, then you are doing so in a non-consensual manner and that makes you a BAD PERSON>..so stop.

                    I'm not on Facebook. So assume that is why I see none of the friends. What is strange about the friends?
                    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

                      They're all disabled females. We have 1 mutual, a close personal friend and colleague. I'll message her. Can she then block this creeper douche?

                        I do not understand this sickness especially when it is so easy to just go outside and met people in the flesh.

                          that is cool. Appears this "courtney jasper" is a model and her pic was of course just stolen.

                              )) We can't all be blessed with great looks, and exciting lives

                              of course you have both!

                              I guess before the internet, all the turtles, just had to live going out and public and being who they really are...

                              I have a friend Erik who is being trolled right now..or at least she is beginning ot suspect a girl she has been talking to is a fake. She is talking more and more about sex..which I know we girls do, but..her radar is now up. Maybe we can do a catfish sting operation!

                                I can not believe the duplicity of some people.

                                Actually I can. That is my real picture, but I'm the dog pretending to be the person in the picture. Woof.
