So if you've ever made it possible to connect your real you to all the cr@p that you're involved with on the interwebs, people can see the connections?

Hardly big news.

Try finding out about me, personally.

Markie realised, right back when the interwebs first came into being, that all manner of sh1thead people and organisations would do everything they could to profit from knowledge of personal information, so Markie put a tiny little bit of effort into preventing that.

To know about the real me, you would now have to hack more than one database, and have the ability to correlate the data.

Anyone who has done differently will -- as in WILL -- suffer, because of it.

This was obvious decades ago. Those who don't even realise it decades later have made serious mistakes.

I'm not saying that people deserve what they get, but that a little forethought of pretty obvious consequences might have been a good thing.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
