Post How much, do you think the Net knows about you?

Our profiles have little information. Most of us are aware of possibilities and incredible information capacity of the Net. Yet, how much information, do you think, can be gotten about you, if, say, very knowledgeable and skillful Web searcher would try ones best to collect all possible information about you starting from your WtaWorld profile only?

tons of personal information for me, it's extremely easy to find personal information on others just by knowing a few small details about a person. i guess it just depends how much that sort of thing concerns you. for myself personally, it doesn't bother probably should, and you hear bad stories from time to time about crazy people online etc. but i honestly don't really care who knows my phone number, who knows where i live, or whatever. i'm just not paranoid about it.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

you are probably talking about content of a website, but you have no idea how many information you are sharing when you are online..

I realise full well that it's easy to find lots of info about me online. But unless someone starts messing with my credit card, or comes knocking on my door in the middle of the night, I don't really care. I know full well what I bought online and what I didn't. So if I see something on my credit card bill that I didn't buy, I'm not going to pay for it! It's the shop owner who's taking risks, not me. If I say I didn't buy it, and the shop owner can't prove it was me who bought it, I don't have to pay.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Im like whatever. Id probably be scared shitless though if someone did come to my house or what not and asked for me. It would be totally weird.
