this has no "wow" factor for me, as the only contact is from the local
greens groups contact list which is *intended* to be public, so that
people with queries can contact the secretaries of their local groups,
in this case me (see alternate signature below).
i do have footprints all over the net from my infestation of the last 20
years, in fact i was in the original White Pages under "tal", so it
seems odd that they didn't catch me at a number of places i currently
have interests, from north america to norway, and i even provide some
friends who need privacy with a crude anonymizing service through the
domain name i own, which i thought would have cross-referenced through
to this account, which is where a traceroute would get chopped off at
the bounce/remail point.
however, i am a little miffed that i have been put into a database with
asking my permission, and as it would be relatively easy to cross
reference other emails and links, the implications for the future are a
thank you for bring this to my attention.
