Re: if you search for my real name online

But there's one thing that bugs the shit out of me... I do not consent to my private info being shared by anyone else.

I have taken the additional step of not keeping in touch with family, don't have close friends (other than my wife, who also follows data privacy rules and has no social media accounts etc. she doesn't even have a mobile phone).

One day all that might actually pay off, and it looks like it's starting to do so already. Only time will tell. The only things I avoid doing to stay off the radar are the kind of things that would make me pop up on certain 'lists' etc. I'm very close to dumping the internet entirely - I certainly don't engage with anything that's essential and that relies on the internet, so if the days comes to switch off, I won't be totally screwed over.
