Anyone with a good knowledge of computers and the interent could probly find out anything about you with your initials so i dont think its too big of a deal.

Not to mention... You already have the city and state you live in. Plus personal contact information. Anyone can use your Yahoo AIM or MSN screenname you got posted and talk to you, veiw your IM profiles, visit your links, and find out plenty about you that way.

Oh and... License plates in your pics

So honestly, get over the birthday thing, it should be the least of your concerns compared to some of the other stuff you got posted.


Every time I find out that I have public information out there, I do what I can to privatize it. My city in my profile is not my ACTUAL address and I black out my license in pictures...

And just because my information MIGHT be able to be found by people who can do bad stuff, doesn't mean I need to make it easy for them.

So seriously, Dave... No option to hide it?

Again, it may be information that can be found out, but there's no reason to advertise.

I don't understand the license plate deal. What is the difference if someone sees your ride on the street or the net?

The chances of someone writing down your license plate and tracking you down while driving are slim, although possible...

Someone sitting at their computer looking at pictures has to put MUCH less effort into it...

Alright, so you guys come out and say you can pull credit reports, then I ask you to do mine, give you my b-day and name, and you won't pull it for me? That's weak


He got me my loan for my house so yes I will vouch for him being able to pull credit considering he's done it for me like 3 times now. I now live 3 blocks from his house and we work less than 1 mile apart I know the guy pretty well considering he's the best man at my wedding.

It's not that. It's the simple fact that a license plate is used to identify a vehicle (in a state). That option alone is why people blank it out. Yes it is true that you can get a person's address, etc. from their license plate, and some people would rather not want to reveal that information, simple as that.

If people were given a choice to blank out their license plate in public so other people couldn't see it, they would do it, but for the mere fact that by law they are required to show it, they can't do anything.
