I'm so disappointed! Fake posters on here.

I was so happy when I found AC. I was in need of knowledge and support in my caregiver role.

I did find many supportive answers and have made in my heart friends.

But lately I read questions/answers that I know are not real.. How can someone be so cruel?

I know just ignore them! But they more than often ruin a question by making it become off topic..

I just don't know if ANY questions are real or not..

It's sad to think that another caregiver is where I was last year and needs support and some mean spirited person is answering their question with bad intentions....

Why do some people have to ruin a good thing?

Close to 2 acres here covered in dandelions each spring. I leave them be as they're the first food of the season for the bees.

Sallie, that idea sounds similar to what homes and businesses used back in the 1930's. It's great that your son enjoys building things like that, that is how new ideas and inventions get their start :)

No refrigerant is used, just a small fan buckets pvc pipes and a block of ice. Very ingenious. I think it will only cool off a room like a bedroom.

Sally, I take it that the homemade a/c doesn't use any refrigerant?

There's a YouTube video on how to make a homemade air conditioner. It's really cool. My son is going to make one. They say it cost about $45.00 to make and then you just need a block of ice to make it cool a room.

There are some good DIY videos on YouTube. Hopefully they're made by the participating individuals and don't breach someone's IP rights!

I'm partial not only to the dance but the music ones, although I suspect they are copyrighted. I've seen some of Scottish Tattoos with dozens of bagpipers marching into a castle that looks it could have been the setting for MacBeth.

Personally I like Youtube and use it frequently for videos on how to do stuff.

FreqFlyer, there was a post on another forum I visit regularly about the exact issue of someone taking unauthorized photos. In this case the would-be photographer took the photos from his back yard, of the neighbors and their child, then added the photo to some type of commercial activity in which he was engaged, but paid no royalties to the spied-on family. Nor did he ask permission before breaching their privacy personally and publicly. I hope they sued him for mental anguish.

I found this just so offensive. But unfortunately the advent of photo capable phones has allowed any one to take photos of anything and anyone, w/o permission. I doubt if there will be any legislation to address this though.

YouTube is another story; apparently anyone can upload a video. There are privacy issues here as well as intellectual property (IP) infringement. I do like to look through the ballet and dance sections, but I'm also aware that some of these videos are unauthorized and that YouTube had eventually started removing some when notified of copyright infringements.

Facebook...I will never, never understand what prompts people to share family or intimate photos online, or to post detailed accounts of their daily activities, children's illnesses, meals, animals sicknesses, and all sorts of trivia that to me would interest only their families.

I've told one of the younger members of my extended family repeatedly that there's no expectation of privacy when she uploads all of her photos online and that she's exposing her children to an openness which can be dangerous, especially given the proliferation of pornography, child abduction and other horrific crimes.

I've asked myself repeatedly, and others, but never had a satisfactory answer to the question of why people need to share so many photos of themselves and their family online. Are we becoming a nation of exhibitionists? of amateur photographers? What's the deal with all this anyway?
