A Few Things Learned At Someone Else's Expense

Had the sad / unfortunate experience to watch someone crash & burn recently.  To protect the privacy & feelings of innocent 3rd parties, I'm obscuring all the details, though I will say while the person in question did some things wrong, they also did some things right & deserve credit for that. The key points:

  1. Your sins will find you out.  This is especially true in the Internet age.
  2. It's never the crime, it's always the cover-up.
  3. That being said, don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
  4. If you make a record of something, you are giving tacit approval to share it with the world.
  5. If you make a digital record, sharing with the world is compulsory.
  6. Do nothing you aren't willing to share with the world.
  7. Handles create a false sense of security.
  8. Nothing is ever as it seems.
  9. If you can't answer a personal question with "Yeah, so?" you are doing something wrong.
