Before you hit “enter” and post that comment, photo, image, or “status” update, ask yourself this question: “What would the chief say about this?”  Once you’ve said something online, it’s forever.  You might think once you’ve deleted that one comment you regret the next day, but you cannot truly put the toothpaste back in the tube — once you’ve posted something, there will be a copy of it someplace for someone to find.
