Picture this â€“ I am checking my e-mail before Church on Sunday morning, and I receive a YIM from â€œcreativefemailname.â€ Sometimes I do receive random YIM, AIM(link), or MSN, especially since I have them all posted on my personal page. I do not mind most of them, however.
This one, I minded. (Is â€œmindedâ€ even a word?) Out of nowhere she tells me she likes my profile, and asks me if I would like to cyber. No where in my Yahoo! profile would you get that I would even remotely consider â€œcyberâ€ing.
I understand that many people use instant messaging services for this purpose, and it is completely in their right to do so, but when I receive unsolicited messages it crosses a line. If I frequented adult chat rooms, I would not be irritated. If I said I was looking for a good time in my profile, I would not be irritated. But the bottom line is, I do none of these things, and I am irritated.
And to add insult to injury, it is not just my screen name. My wife and I share the screen name, since the both of us cannot be signed on at the same time.
So, my thought of the day is: â€œHas anyone ever pressed sexual harassment charges for creating a hostile environment on the internet?â€
