Question So this is a little creepy - Anyone speak Vietnamese?

So I Googled my username - greentea191 which I use for a.i.m and have used for years in various other accounts...Many photos and comments I've made here where visible there. What was creepy/weird part you ask?

Someone made a thread in a Vietnamese betta/fish forum about my fish. They had posted a bunch of photos of fish I had bought, and Google Chrome translate was no help. So... anyone want to help me understand why someone saved photos of fish I bought and then posted them to a Vietnamese fish forum?

That is creepy. I tried to translate too and yeah - best I can tell they're admiring your fish. But have no idea why they would start a post about your fishies!

Lol me neither! The extra creepy part is some photos are from months ago, some are quite recent, they've been keeping up with me! It's nice if they're admiring them, I couldn't make sense of any of it. Are you Vietnamese mjoy?

Here's a link for anyone interested in trying - http://www.diendancacanh.com/forum/s...-t%C3%A8m-nhem

No I'm not Vietnamese. I tried using a translator but it didn't help much, like you said.
Yah I noticed they were posting those in October. They are beautiful fish though :)

Well, the board is the most open and unsecured forum I've ever been a part of. I'm totally not surprised about you being able to google your posts. I'm also not surprised about someone admiring your fishies if all of that info is out there for anyone to access as well, you know?

Yeah it is sort of weird that any post at any time is available for anyone to see. I don't like that about this forum. And it's not a problem or anything, but yeah I know what you're saying. I googled it because someone posted my aim name on 4chan the other day and I have been getting all kinds of weird messages and stuff...So I wanted to make sure nothing weird had been posted about me online and then I noticed all my posts were on there!

We have had a few members here from Vietnam. Maybe it was one of them.

Are all those fish from the same breeder? Maybe the breeder was posting pics of the fish you bought? I don't know...
