Back at the dawn of the 21st century it had never really occurred to me that what I write on the internet while stay on the internet forever.

But it does stay around forever. In recent years I have found myself logging into message boards to delete or edit decade old posts.

I have some personal writings here that I would probably do the same thing to, but I have a little bit of attachment to them. Most of them aren't 100 percent true anyway, most of them are more like the movie version and for the most parts the names involved have been changed. In some cases multiple people have been combined into the same person and details have otherwise varied far from the truth. So if you know me in real life and somehow find my writing here, don't be sure that any of it is how it really happened or that I am even writing about who you think I am writing about.
