I think it would be very enlightening for us to know HOW you found out about us.
- Was it an on-line ad? If so, where?
- Was it a printed ad? What mag/newspaper?
- Was it an article about us? Where?
- A flyer someone hung up somewhere?
- Did you find it on Google by chance?
- Did you find it on Google while looking for bad stuff?  
- Word of mouth?
- Therapist?
- Mashgiach?
- etc...

And if you are not too afraid of anonymity issues, it would also be nice to know WHERE you live... So for example, if people could post on this thread something like this:

"Where What When" magazine - Baltimore

or something like that.

Thanks guys!

Thanks, but it would help a lot more if you could tell us WHICH on-line ads? YeshivaWorld? VIN? Arutz 7? - And WHICH forums/blogs?

This is what we're TrYing to figure out

Honestly guard this question has its reprcussions. Foe example i dont want to say where i saw about guardyoureyes for obvious reasons. Not that i mind but i dont want to write it here. it wont do any good and may even be detrimental. get what im trying to say? And im sure im not the only one. I know that others have also found it in uncanny manners.

Why not? That's actually the coolest! We've had a few people post on the forum that they found us by Googling inappropriate stuff... It's like finding Hashem down in the mud! Yup, He's there too. (Especially on Chanukah!)

You don't have to post exactly what words you Googled (although I'd be interested to hear by e-mail). After all, we all know what you were doing BEFORE you found GYE

a chaburah with three friends getting together for 45 minutes once a week to discuss and learn to give ourselves chizzuk on different areas and challenges.

and last year the topic of shmiras eynayim and those issues came up.

and one Yid there brings in the handbook.

and I give him my email adress for the daily chizzuk

and the rest is history

if the meetings or the topic would not have come up,I wouldn't have known

I actually saw it on a different forum. A real sick one too. A guy was asking for help in these areas. Who knows why in hell he was asking on that forum? But i saw the request and i saw someone answer with a couple of sites. Well guardyoureyes was one of them. Sometimes i think that maybe the guy asked just so that I should see it. Who knows?? Oh and im from Yerushalayim.

Also Yeshiva World. I don't think  others should mention bad sites where they saw your ad? We don't need more exposure to those sites!

I believe that I first found out about GYE on Yeshiva World.

And, you know where I'm from.
