Any textual representation of self will be taken out of context, read with different intentions, and potentially used against the person who posts.

Employers, friends, family, strangers, co-workers, and subordinates see this and project this onto their preexisting ideas of what that person is about. It’s a pretty powerful tool if used correctly, but the effects could be catastrophic.
