Dear Grapevine


MAYBE you could mention something in an upcoming issue about the importance of anonymity. I can't tell you how many times I've logged on to a popular social media networking site only to find photos from various conferences posted by acquaintances. I wonder; do the people in these photos know they are going to end up so exposed? It is up to the individual to decide how anonymous they wish to be. An AA function is hardly the place for a camera, especially when the internet is where the photos end up.

I go to meetings for help with my sobriety. Sadly, I won't be going to any conferences any time soon due to snap-happy attendees.
