    I was having a dialogue with a friend about the trust factor of the internet and for the fun of it, I did a Google search on my given name and my forum name.

    I discovered that someone else with my name is a reknowned book writer. I also found another laboratory person with my forum name and a yet another, on a different discusion forum, who is a Christian with a JW girlfriend, asking whether it was okay to marry her. Weird!

    I also found my TF profile page, complete with name, address, and IM names. I don't mind being a bit more open with ya'll, because I thought only forum people were the only ones who could see this info. But EVERYBODY can see it!

Is there a way of having that link in particular from the internet?

    Whaddya think? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Scott you would be surprized what you can find on the internet. Place your phone number with area code in a Google search. It will give your name, address, and a map to your house. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    You can find all kinds of info like this.
    I forget the link, but there is one out there you can have your info removed from a phone number search. I did that some time ago.

    I searched a members TF username to see what I would find and it took me to their profile! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    I did this around 2 months ago but I never told anybody because I didnt think it was important.

    It is scary, and the kids are most at risk because of all the evil people out there.

    If you go to Yahoo, and run a search on "scam wars" it has a couple of my friends that have changed since the pics were taken(about 2 years ago). It's kinda cool.

    Nothing is secret on the internet. Do not post anything you do not want people to see. Like this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_r_32.gif[/img]

    And where you can enter name and it will give you there full adress\phone number but can be very useful when you lose a phone number!

    I did a search on my forum name and I got a long list of websites of devoted fans. I didn't know I was that popular.
