    and then they aren't doing too shabby either....

    (Reuters) - Private equity firm Hellman & Friedman on Monday agreed to acquire internet media company Internet Brands INET.O for $640 million in cash.

    I don't think I like the idea of 'them' owning 'my' posts.... bye
    Once we post something on any forum, it's out there for the public eye. I don't remember anything about an entity "owning" my posts in the registration part of the forum. I do appreciate the info. but hope that the forum will continue onwards and upwards
    :thumbup: Welcome to the new admin.
    I thought that this was a private quilting board where our post would only be viewed by the members, not the "public eye". I'm not very comfortable with that either.Could you please answer this for me?

    I have posted private personal family situations because I thought I was talking to friends that I made on a private web forum. I would not have done so if I had thought they were put put out there for everyone to see. Would someone please answer my question? Is this quilting forum private or public?

    i see no reason to delete this. i remind members often that we are swimming in an internet fishbowl. that's why i also constantly ask that we watch what we say and how we say it.

    as long as you don't say anything you wouldn't say over a loudspeaker at the mall, there's nothing to worry about. ;-)

    anything you consider private and personal should not be posted here for the world to read.

    I think we have been reminded before to NOT post our personal email addresses. If you want to exchange information with someone, do it with PMs, and don't post your email address openly.

    it's ok that you asked.

    it is nothing to be worried about. that remark is an example of the hot air and gas created when sour grapes start to rot. ;-)

    I'm thinking we should find the grapes BEFORE they sour and make some wine! :)

    I hope that you are not leaving the QB because of its 'public access' features and realize that by far most of whatever is said in any such forum on the internet is forgotten, ignored and soon erased/deleted before anyone uses or cares torelate to information given. I hope sincerely that your entries in the past have not adversely affected your view of what this QB is about. Come back.

    I think we also need to keep in mind something Konstantin told us long ago - the ads on our site PAY for it, so we don't have to! That's how the internet works.

    Welcome, TaliaRose! Hope you will enjoy this fun group! What lovely cats! I, too, was raised in sunny So. California (Los Angeles, near Westchester). I have to visit at least a few times a year to get my ocean fix. Even though I love Colorado and the beautiful mountain scenery here, I miss California. My daughter lives in Huntington Beach so I always have an excuse to go back!

    Best wishes always, Konstantin, to you and your new bride--Thanks for all you did! WLee

    Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Gorilla!! May you have as many happy years together as the 35 years that my hubby and I have shared.
    Welcome Talirose! We won't drive you crazy for a little while yet.

    Welcome Talia Rose and hugs to you.
    I am new on this board and have no idea who Konstatine is? I don't suppose it is a real gorilla. So.... I will just say I wish you the best and have a great life.
