Personal Privacy

Really is it so hard to understand that e-mail addresses are private things? It isn't like this isn't a discussed topic. But in the past 30 days I had two events where my e-mail address was publicly posted. As this is the internet I must now say that everyone in the world has my address.

The worst part was the first one was about some kid in Burkina Faso who was suffering from some kind of horrible cancer brought on my hanging around too much Einsteinium and was going to die and wanted everyone to know it. The second was about a kid that went missing after his parents took away his X-Box asking everyone to help find him even though he was located and it hit the news stream two hours before hand.
