Major invasion of your privacy, sure. But at least they didn't freak out and were totally fine about it. Plus, they waited until you were ready to tell them rather than confront you when they figured it out through snooping...gotta give them credit for that!

If either parent knows what he's doing, the OP could have been tracked on the router instead of the PC, and he wouldn't have been able to get to the history to erase it.

Why not? Accessing a network from the inside is very easy. It's not like it's impossible for him to copy another device's name and MAC address on the network or encrypt his traffic. I suppose it wouldn't matter (doesn't now anyway) if the OP is computer illiterate.

#154 what people are trying to say is that the computer is not being monitored. it's like with texting you can delete the texts off your phone but they're still stored by the phone company. Using this example his parents are monitoring his history through the router (the information from the phone company in my example) instead of through his computer (or phone in my example)

Hear, hear!,#4! Everyone who is upset about "ruined" privacy is probably a disgruntled youth. If you can't take three seconds to delete your history, you might has well just leave your pr0n on the bed too.

Even if he did delete the history on the computer, it would still be saved on the router (the part that connects all te computers in the house with the Internet). and unless he knows the password to that which is very unlikely he wouldn't be able to delete that history

At least they didn't flip out. How is it an FML? Your parents still love and care for you, if they had kicked you out or something, THEN, it would've been an FML. It's only a YDI cause you didn't clear your history.

Which websites? The OP never said porn, he may have just gone on gay dating sites or whatever. Lots of things can give your sexuality on the internet. Although I do love that Avenue Q song...

I wonder how long it'll be before someone comments that the OP deserves it for being gay? Won't be long... Er anyway, it's not exactly a problem. It made it A LOT easier for you to come out, didn't it? It's still an annoying breach of privacy. I really hate it when my parents are all nosey about my internet activity. Still, it worked out better for you!
