...and I can't believe this thread is still going strong (even if it has taken a turn for the better...)

I have totally been thinking about this lately! There are so many threads that pop up asking for all this information on people and if someone answers every one of them all this personal information is out there for everyone to see.

Yeah but people can get that ANYWHERE now a days. There was a site that (don't remember the name) if you typed in a name gave the person's address, income, household type, marital status etc... a lot of it was also incorrect like it said on mine I made WAY more money than I do so that is scary it's says "come to my house rob me and kidnap my children" It was just a basic people search too. I removed my name but who knows what other sites like that are out there?
