  •  I just got a piece of mail addressed to (7+ / 0-)

    my first name, the initial of my last name as my middle initial, and my partner's last name as my last name.  That means, somewhere out there, there is a file on a computer with that name and address...and some other computer is going to ask me something like "which one of these people has never lived at your address..."

    A few months ago, I got a notice from the California State Franchise Tax Board infroming my ex- wife (who was divorced before I owned that address in California), owed x amount in back taxes, penalties, and interest (who has never worked, nor owed taxes in California), and that they were placing a lien on her property (mine?)

    That means, that somewhere out there, there is another computer that doesn't have a €%^cking clue, and another computer that will rely on it for verification information....
