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. *jeep! --Chet "Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /// ZION LIST CHARTER: Please read it at /// /// http://www.zionsbest.com/charter.html /// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ==^================================================================ This email was sent to: email@example.com EASY UNSUBSCRIBE click here: http://topica.com/u/?aaP9AU.bWix1n.YXJjaGl2 Or send an email to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] T O P I C A -- Register now to manage your mail! http://www.topica.com/partner/tag02/register ==^================================================================
