Privacy Invaded Internet Style
While discussing the internet and the information we're able to access I became concerned when i realized that if you put your name in a search engine more information populates than I am comfortable. I have a specific qualm regarding this issue. I have a permanent restraining order against a person who turned my life and that of my families into a living hell. With this in mind I believe there needs to be some kind of law in effect that limits the information a web search can provide. When entering my name there are quite a few young ladies who share the same name but if you were to put in a name and state it populates showing the name and city or town that they are living. No, it doesn't give address though just that little tidbit of information it provides could be dangerous. Not just for myself but anyone else out there in the same situation.
Does anyone out there have any ideas or suggestions? Could getting a local state representative involved in creating some sort of bill that limits what search engines can provide? What if there's someone who has been stalked and life may depend on this information being kept hidden? I love the internet for accessing information though I think that some of the information could be considered an invasion of privacy. What is your take on that?
