    I realise this is a bit old, but what was it about Peter's situation that was so inappropriate?

    Was it because he asked why she was in a motel?

    From what he's said, it sounds like he was just mucking about a little, and his coworker seems quick to overreact. What was the point of sending a strange parking lot video to him anyway? "Hey, look at me being dodgy, and don't ask any questions."?

    Happy to hear nothing bad came out of this, but that person sounds like they have issues. I've ignored red flags (ranging from being plain unreliable to seemingly unstable/erratic) from people before just because I was a bit lonely or wanted to "have some fun". Never worth it.

    At any rate, asking because I'm genuinely curious about this.

    Mind your own business. That simple.

    Pretty much this. Peter asked questions he shouldn't have, with someone he had no connection to other than working with, and sharing a friends list with.

    Its social etiquette, which he did not execute well.

    Thanks.

    Okay, I went back and read his post again. I missed the part where he said this happened *after* she sent the parking lot video. Was under the (false) impression that this all happened together, in which case, I would find her reaction odd. That is, don't send the video if you don't want a reaction.

    You're still a bit off. She sent a video with dialogue of questionable nature (don't think details were given but sexual in nature somehow). Afterwards he noticed that she was in a parking lot through the location settings, and then went to a motel. He asked about the locations in such a way that she got the impression he called her a prostitute.

    So all the location stuff was him being nosey, which is why the general response was "mind your own business in the future". If she doesn't bring up where she is and you aren't close enough for it to be normal for you to ask what she's doing in a parking lot for two hours before going to a motel, don't.

    Yeah, read the IRC logs as well just now. Makes sense.
