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.
