    Thanks for the heads-up on spokeo. I found out I don't exist! At all! This shows that you can indeed still keep your privacy at this stage of the internet age.

    I'm a vigorous facebook user, but keep my privacy setting moderately high. I've also always been careful and cagey on the internet, never connecting my real email to anything involving shopping or bill paying. I have a series of alternate emails I use for that sort of thing.

    It's really interesting that I'm simply absent from the site. Huh.

      My usual email is associated with the wrong state entirely, perhaps because of IP detection (which is still a good ways off - and the same for all the email accounts I checked, so they MAY have gotten that from my visit to their site).

      And I'm not daring to check for the email and username I use here, not until I've cleared cookies and am somewhere else entirely.

      Hoping and praying that the empty chairs and empty tables in Iran when all is said and done are as few as possible.

        Yes, I just made that word up.

        I wouldn't search spokeo for any email I didn't want sold to spammers. Searching for it tells spokeo it's live. (I didn't search for my main email for just that reason.)

        Your clearing cookies/other location is probably prudent. God knows what that site gathers when you visit it.
