Yeah, this point deserves a big +1, IMNSHO. I've complained about this on multiple occasions, and it's the only reason why I now hide behind a pseudonym rather than posting under my proper name. And concerns like these are not necessarily unfounded. In the past, I used to post using my real name here. Then, I took part in an OT conversation which veered off toward a couple of mildly racy subjects. Not long after, I was confronted with this by my ex-wife (who had Google-stalked that conversation). She then used that same LD thread to question/threaten my visitation rights with my son. I didn't realize at the time that it was possible to pull up LD posts via a simple Google search. More fool me; I figured that one out the hard way. And, granted, not everybody's got a crazy ex- tracking their movements, but it might be worth keeping in mind that this list is currently open to the whole darn world. >But that's my opinion, as long as you're aware of what youre doing - >fine with me! :-) As Buzap rightly pointed out, it's definitely at the poster's discretion. But one ought to at least stay cognizant of the privacy concerns here. --m. -- _____ "bye-bye empire; empire, bye-bye"
