I'm liking all these stories so far :,) makes me feel like it's a small world. That's what i'm saying how some users put abit personal information when helping others move and describing their neighborhood. Some even get as personal as leaking their amount of childern and income earnings.

I almost said something to the guy who lived on my dog-walking route because he'd posted so much personal info that if a burglar or robber were reading his posts, he'd know exactly when to strike. The poster had linked himself to a blog via C-D and on that blog he posted his vacation itineraries in great detail. Combined with the photos, which included his street address, he was a sitting duck. As far as I know, nothing ever happened - at least it never showed up on our neighborhood's police report. But I was afraid that if I did say something about how much personal info he'd published on the internet, he'd become upset at me for interfering so I never did.

I'm usually way too focused on the beauty of my surroundings when I hike up Mt. Lee to notice anyone.

Plus you have to watch out for the poop.

Was that the guy with the bumper sticker on his BMW that said , "I don't break for peasants" ?
Thought that was him.

Are you suggesting we should meet up at bars and act like City Data yuppies?

...
Yes.

With that said, my brother told me one his friends saw me at a porno joint (this was before internet porn became common). His friend was there browsing the video section. I told my brother he should have walked over and said, "Hello!" We could have exchanged movie reviews.
