If you ever posted your phone number on the internet thatll happen, its actually scary, i can go into the BT website and get any UK phone number for anyone given just a location or even part of the name and the only way to get off the list is to register your number as X-directory which few people bother with. You know it even gives you a map to there house.
Scary isnt it, you have to be careful, if they bother you there is a number you can dial into your phone after someone calls that bans the number, its like #124580 for the UK or something similar cant remember exactly but if you get in touch with the phone company they can tell you.
You could probably piece together my location from the location bar if you knew abit about where i live and my user name lets away my nationality and my name, if youve been around long enough you could even find out where i study. And the staff can look up my email adress, but i decide not to worry about. If you tried to find me you would prbably find some reverand in dakota that scares the [bleep] out of me(complete opposite of me and its safe to say not someone i would enjoy talking to AT ALL). Ah well im rambling, the internet is a big thing full of info its hard to protect just be careful and dont let your phone number be published and youll be fine 90% of the time, i always think its not worth worrying about.
