    I am feeling kinda awful because I accidentally posted copyrighted cIOSX's on my brand new website, and then implicated a GBA temp user as well.
    So I thought I would ask:
    What is the WORST thing you have ever done on the Internet?

    Back when I was like 12-13, I used IE for several months without anti-virus. A mistake I will never make again.
    That and using LimeWire to download furry porn. There was a history log. I deleted the history before anyone could see, but it still was very close.

    Also, using LimeWire.

    GBAtemp. Not much. I got caught by my parents for downloading a Daft Punk CD. I didn't get punished though, just a warning about me infecting my laptop. Yeah, right.

    Derp.

    Just kidding. I searched for "undesirable" stuff (undesirable for parents anyway) while on my mother's computer a few years ago, and back then I didn't know how to delete the Internet history... I panicked, but somehow I managed to figure out how to delete the history before my mother came home. :3 The hidden potential of mankind in a desperate situation, lol.

    deliberately starting a flame war. of course, I've done that numerous times. I wouldn't really say it's a screw up though as I found it funny. personally, I think if u can't accept other people's opinions u shouldn't be on the internet.

    Going on a site at work that had hit a home computer with malware already... they said the ads causing it were removed; should have known better! [​IMG] Also, early on in my internet experience, being a little too trusting of some "friends." I keep my guard up more these days.

    My biggest internet screw up was making a Twitter, now people don't stop following me...ever. It is a bother to have EVERY FOLLOWER know what you are doing at every exact second!
