Something to think about - in all those times anyone had Google'd for their own name, entered their own home address (or maps, GoogleEarth, Ect), anything with personal data - is there any doubt Google wouldn't link it together? (IE, user-names and accounts linking to your home address).
It's no conspiracy! It's for reals! (no, really, it's real). People should be careful who they 'flame' on msg boards, because it might just lead them right back to their front door.
hythos perhaps it's a good thing if there were actually consequences for flaming on message boards.
That might make people think twice about what they're posting. But as it stands now, nobody's going to care enough to do something about it. If it were otherwise, I'm sure tuan and crashie would've had house visits every few days for some unfounded claim they'd make. That is not so. Tuan published his home address at some point, and I haven't read any death notice in the news.
