I know I give out a lot of personal information such as phone numbers, addresses, paypal emails to websites that I really do not trust...Some of the websites happen to be pay to click websites which seem to be a huge scam anyway..I don't know why I keep doing this, I guess I didn't realize the consequesnces...Do you give out personal information? Are you concerned now that oyu actually think about it? Giving all this information to non trusted sites without thinking?!!?!?

Hey you are right,sometimes I do wonder a lot about that, afterall it is a pc and we cannot have full trust on internet as there are also hackers so I prefer to do not include much info on myself on sites I do sign up.

Yes thats another thing we have to worry about. Hackers. WHo knows, we could have been submitting some of our information to hackers. That's not good...Than they can get in our emails, paypal, and any other information we give them.

I'm not bothered about giving out information but i'm concerned about misuse of information i put out.I've also suffered the consequences in the sense that my e.mail has been flooded with useless mail or spam.Initially i would give out personal information on net but now i am selective and give out information only when i'm sure it will not be misused.

Yes, the spam is so annoying. I get at least 50 junk emails every single day...I guess those are the consequences i deserved for being careless...Also all the emails go to my blackberry so I have my blackberry ringing like crazy, it's so annoying!
