People being creepy online in private messages is almost to be expected these days - but the really mind-boggling stuff is happening in comment sections and in status updates, e.g. "public online areas where pretty much ANYONE can see how weird and creepy you're being."

9. Reminder: you're probably friends with your parents on Facebook. Or at least someone you don't want to embarrass yourself in front of.
