What one writes, reads, clicks on, fills out, develops, downloads, views, and listens to on the internet becomes part of a permanent record, leaves a trail, and opens up the gates for everyone.  In today's world, far away is now sitting next to you and if they're sitting next to you, what are they seeing?  Caution rules the day.
