When was the last time any of you put your names into a popular search engine to see what comes back?

Since the last time I looked, the amount of information available online with just my name used here was surprisingly a lot! After some searching around with other keywords, I was able to remove a good hunk of sensitive information about myself online!

This came to mind when I noticed another poster here's name on another site I was frequenting and thought "hmm" I wonder, 7,210 Google results later and I was convinced to track down and remove my own information.

All I can say is I'm going to be using much more popular words and phrases as a username in the future to make tracking me down a heck of a lot harder. :eek:

*shrug* as soon as you put any name on the net, it will be picked up by a search engine.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
