I've generally been careful on TLS (even in PMs) not to share outtable info and to give "fudged" info when it's not crucial to a discussion. e.g.: stats, date of acceptance, geographic region, major, etc.
You were already admitted. You can say whatever you want now.
I think I'll pass on saying whatever.
Now that I think about it, I probably didn't out myself yet because even if they track whom they've sent books to, they don't know if I'm someone who just hasn't received one or who hasn't been sent one yet.So since I'm in a state where it traditionally takes USPS toward the higher end of its range to deliver something from the east coast (CA/OR/WA/AZ/NM/TX), my book could be on its way
On a related note to the bolded, I'm 99% positive (can't verify due to deleted posts) that yesterday you claimed to be in a geographic region (you listed states that included PA/NY, IIRC) within 2 mailing days of Harvard. So...lol, just lol. There really is no need to be this paranoid.
It's a mixed of fudged and true posts. the only thing is it's hard to figure out which is which. In that last post I basically listed all states east of IL and north of VA. But like I said if my actual state isn't important to the discussion then I'll just throw out a fudged list. Now, my actual state's being on the higher end of the USPS range relative to MA is relevant to a possible explanation of why I haven't received my book yet. So take it FWIW.
Yea there's no need to be paranoid but between option 1 (posting fudged posts on TLS, thus minimizing the chances of JS2->JSNO) and option 2 (posting real posts, not helping me preserve the JS2), you don't think it makes sense to stay under the radar until the coast is really clear?
That's why my Facebook is deactivated until September (which is also why I didn't see the admissions FB post until people put it here).
That is, unless there's some sort of IP tracing going on, but even then my IP doesn't tell anyone much about me because I got a guest login to the network of a local UG that I don't go to. I just live near there with a bunch of people who do go there, whereas I commute to another UG.
