Dear Ms. Netiquette,
I recently had a friend ask me for my tokens, this is what she said…
I saw that your Pogo subscription expired. I was wondering if I could have your tokens. And if you come back to Pogo I WILL give you every token back. I just need your password so I can transfer them to my account.
First of all, I would never give my password out, not even to a family member. Second, I did inform this person that even though I could not play Club Pogo right now, I can and still do play the free Pogo. I explained that my husband just passed away and then my subscription ended. I cannot afford the membership right now.
My question is this, if she could get into my account how could she take my tokens and transfer them to her account? I personally think this person has been lying to me and making it seem she is not who she was saying she was. Even if she was, she has to be crazy to think I would give her the password to my account.
Dear Ms. Netiquette,
I hope that all has been going well for you and that your tea is wonderful today. I have a question for you, and maybe you won’t be able to answer, but any advice would be appreciated.
I am one of those people that loves to read other people’s profiles. I read so many interesting things, and have quite a few laughs, which sometimes I am so thankful for. Especially if I am having a lousy day. I truly appreciate those people out there who do fill out their profiles, and make them a bit humorous.
I was checking one out the other day, and I was shocked over what I read. This person used “None of Your Business” for all their personal stats, and in the favorites columns they went on to say that people who read other people’s profiles are sick and that they should consider themselves stalkers.
Is this what I am because I enjoy reading those profiles? I myself have my profile filled out, and I don’t care if anyone reads it or not, and I certainly wouldn’t think anyone who did look at it was sick or stalking me. I just find it interesting to see where everyone is from and what they love about life in general. It breaks up the monotony of my day sometimes.
I just would like your general opinion on this. I appreciate your time.
Best regards for a great cup of tea,
Recently I noticed the name of a person I see often while playing Bingo Luau on My Friends list. I must have clicked it by accident at some point. I immediately removed it.
Now when I enter a room where that person is playing, she almost immediately leaves. I am afraid she thinks I am stalking her. Nothing could be further from the truth. We just happen to play the same game, sometimes in the same room, often.
Am I being paranoid? What can I do to make this better?
