You can, of course, limit the amount of information you provide to lists 
-- such as your real name, etc.  But the internet just makes a little 
easier what's been true since at least the 1960s, and that's that there 
is no true privacy anymore.  The only hope for privacy is that there is 
so MUCH information available that one's individual data becomes 
difficult to sort out from the surrounding "white noise."

We now view old movies and certain TV shows such as *the Fugitive* as 
charming, and remember when one could get a job and rent a home without 
severe background checks.
