Some of the best advice I ever received was to live as though everyone is watching all the time.  Sometimes I forget, but in general it seems quite wise.

Someone else, a good friend since passed on, had a disability and used to mention her "lovely legs".  They were actually deformed from a knee operation gone wrong on both legs.  From this, I learned to refer to trouble-makers as "the lovely Mrs. So-and-so" and it gives me the pleasure of venting in a quiet way as needed.  In general though, leaving out all sorts of detail is a very good idea.

      Anything in writing, including emails and texts, is strictly business.  Aside from the possibility of being hacked, what if they were used as testimony in a court case, or in a disciplinary hearing before the Real Estate Commission?

Of course. I shared one such event right here on active rain. Completely illegal in the arena of anti-hacking measures.

Client information is anonymous meaning much more effect will be needed to connect the record to a citizen.
