    How important is your privacy on the net to you?

    Tiger Shark brought this topic to my attention in the following thead:
    http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=262055

    When you create web pages or post on security related sites, how private are you with information like your real name and work location? Iíve never been that concerned because I did not think anyone would be interested enough to single me out for some kind of physical or digital harassment, but then again maybe Iím naive. Worse case likely scenario I see is some one messes with one of my boxes just to say he hacked the guy on Antionline named Irongeek. Iím not that well know so I donít think many people would find that worth bragging about. Whatyouíre your thoughts on the mater? How private are you with information about yourself?

    Nothing is private on the Internet.

    Just looking at your post, I know your full name, where you live and your phone number. How? PM and I'll tell you!

    Peoples will not hack you to have your private information, you gave and you will gave private information over the Internet.

    And if you look closer you can get my home/work address too, my point is what realistically should I worry about?

    To answere the title of this thread i would have to say,"we are as private as we want to be". Or i should say, as private as our knowledge of personal security dictates.

    It's a small world and the internet has made it even smaller.

    Oh and by the way don't worry to much about Tiger Shark, his eyesight is failing. I bet he couldn't hit you from 6 hundred these days. 3 maybe

    I like my privacy......

    May be different because of my sex.....or I am just plain paranoid.

    I use several email accounts\online identities...depending on who I want to be...also depends on the sites.

    I did have another account with AO originally....but let it lapse (forgot the password)..but I recreated myself.

    Thats what I like about the net.....you can be whoever you want be

    You can sustain some amount of privacy... and as long as you keep your activities legit.
