My mother told me, when I was very young, 

"Don't ever write anything to a girl that you wouldn't want other people to read." 


With technology: 

Just assume that no matter how good you are, if someone is interested in seeing what you're doing, they're better than you are. 

Even if they are not - it is good humility to have.

My mom was talking about this stuff to me a month ago. It sounds like you're talking about LexisNexis' verification system.

She had to get through this process, and it was asking her about me, and it was blocking her. It would ask her things like whether I've ever been associated with her most current address, or, I don't know. So she started giving it the wrong-but-plausible answers just to get through the process, and now I wonder if it will take those as correct, and now *I* have to give the wrong-but-plausible answers next time I go through this shit (and I just had to go through it a few days ago to sign up for WeillCornell's patient portal.)

For fuck's sake.

I have gotten those questions as well, scary.

What scares me is when none of the answers were correct.
