Written Down = Public

If you write it down, consider it public. Recently, we saw a not-so-kind message on a public channel. Very quickly, the message was taken down and the individual apologized, saying it was intended to be a private message. But, the damage had been done. The message had been seen. Everything you write down has the potential to become public — sometimes by your own mistake. If you’re going to write it down, make sure you wouldn’t be embarrassed if everyone saw.
