Privacy For The Paranoid....And Would-Be Stalkers
I can't recall if I highlighted this website before or not - Radaris.com.
Go punch your name up and you might be, as I was, very surprised how *public* your info is.
What to do about this?
Well here's a blog post that tells you how to get your info pulled from some of at least the bigger data scrapers.
You write a blog post saying, "We're going into Manhattan today to see..." and you come home and find yourself robbed.
You become famous all of a sudden from winning the lottery and your family is kidnapped...
Or, you become infamous all of a sudden and your family is harassed. For example, Steve Bartman!
Personally I really don't like how easy it is to see *relatives* on these websites too. I mean, WTF? Many of my relatives are downright embarrassing...
