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?

      Interesting you should ask. I agree with you that it is awfully strange that people can access your info via the internet. There is actually a website that provides a service for a fee that will let you find someone and dig into their info/life history. This is similar to the credit agencies that for a fee allow you to look up a total stranger's credit! How is this legal while identity theft is at an all time high?

      This is just an example of big brother turning the other cheek because of the favors they do big businesses and the payoff they recieve in return. They are focused on the concerns of the wealthy sector, not the private, everyday citizen sector. It is a joke!

      Great Hub!

      Thank you for your comments. I've seen that and don't agree with that either. This reflects on how our society has the " we need to know everything " mentality.
