    Re: Personal details of others on the net

    I have a Premiership footballer named after me, so no chance of anyone finding me under all those headlines.

    Also I'm a photographer and a researcher of Biodiversity and Ecological Entomology.

    I once asked a website owner to remove my data too as I didn't want my details on-line, less than co-operative. It never surprises me how indifferent they are to peoples personal data.

    I bet these are the people who throw out their bank statements, straight in the bin, not even read.

    I'm pretty high up on the list when you google my name, but first place goes to the fact that I have the same name as a comic book character...apparently (I think the artist was having an off day when he thought up that name).

    I'm number 4 on the list when my name's googled. No personal details, just a forum profile from a forum I'd long since forgotten about!

    I'm also;
    A singer in america
    Former mayor and current CEO for hamilton city council in NZ
    A deacon for St Paul and St Marylebone
    A postgraduate student at Cambridge researching Russia and Eastern Europe.

    Diverse range of career paths there!

    Mike.

    Re: Personal details of others on the net

    I have a rediculous italian surname so you would have thought that the hits would be related to me. But no...there are a supprising number of doctors with my name

    One of the first few hits that comes up shows the registration info for one of my domain names and the registration address!

    I'm always very careful not to put the house number in the addresses, but it's not the address i live at so i'm not too fussed. It's the address that my web server USED to be located at.

    Re: Personal details of others on the net

    I Googled and....

    I'm an actress (on playschool - sadly now dead)
    A model who was Miss United Kingdom
    An author (which really annoys me as I won't be able to write 'that book' under my own name)
    The daughter of a Lord
    Development manager of a meat company

    The only thing there under my married name is a reference to a letter I wrote to the Independent once. So I really should use my married name as I am apparently unique then (foreign name y'see, which is why I don't use it!)

    Re: Personal details of others on the net

    I too am an author

    I am also a Jazz musician, a bit part actor, an 18th Century son of an Irish colonel, a telecommunications director and a professor of Law in the states.

    My nick is a biochemical researcher (strange as this was the area I wanted to go into up until I was 18 and realised that sport was more fun!), a rather lame 'h4><0r' from Holland (I think), an amateur poker player and some strange bloke with a fixation about computers.

    By all accounts I'm the fisheries minister for New South Wales which is a little ironic as I hate fish... Must have been a bad oyster :P
