I've been on a penpal site (interpals) for years and I've always enjoying making friends online.. I always knew there was something fishy about the
owner but could never put a finger on it..
Today I found out he not only hacked into one of my profiles but THE OWNER uploaded private information about me and then went about pretending to be
me and talking to others acting as me..
What is hypocritical about all of this was a few months ago I used to be a profile moderator on the site and Antonio (the owner) would always stress
the importants of following TOS and being fair and impartial to all users..
I called him out on it and promptly he banned me from the site.. So I recreated a profile to inform others of the truth but he has not only not
apologize but made excuses for himself over and over again, and used lie after lie to get out of the messy situation..
If a small time penpal site owner can act like this God knows what the CEOs and politicians are up to these days..
I know this is not the end of the world or anything and I long knew about the likes of google and yahoo with regards to user privacy.. but a small
site owner personally getting into my accounts and masquerading as me really sucks..
