    I think /assume that most people who fail to fill this vital profile information do so not out of concern for privacy but out of laziness or ignorance.

    I think some people worry about privacy.

    Did you know that if you know what someone is called and where they live, you can work out their name and address?!!

    Why would anyone care to look up any of the people here?

    They want to get us all sooner or later http://www.apug.org/forums/forum45/9...en-better.html
    This makes me thing of a disco in Brasil I think it was where it is chick to get a chip inplant where your drinks and visits are registered. I am afraid this is all just the beginning. How this all can be used even better and exploited is still coming. Maybe I am a dinosaur or out of touch but I thing we are going to start to lose our human side, or maybe this is showing how we really are.
    1984 was supposed to be warning not an instruction book.

    Andreas, you are not out of touch. 1984, or Brazil, are slowly but surely becoming reality in a few places. I fear that the world will forgo privacy, and liberty, for quite some time. I just hope a future generation will want to get it back.

    All the white pages (residential) are now online only. All we get are yellow pages now. Must be great for older folks who don't have a computer or other gadgets or know how to use one.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
