Internet Privacy and Stalking

Raising funds to fight breast cancer, a woman blogged about her charity activities. Using this online information, it appears that someone tracked her down and raped her.
Let’s face it…there are some sick and twisted people on the Internet. For example, the guy who murdered all those people at the Batman movie was recently trolling for dates online.
What’s the point?
Never ever give out information online that lets some stranger track you down. In your website legal documents, don’t use your home address as contact information.
Same issue when registering your website domain names. You wouldn’t believe how many website owners will register a domain name so that a simple WHOIS search reveals where they live.
