Bloggers! Don't Post Your Passwords!

Bernie Online has some excellent posts but this one really opened my eyes to the chance of posting too much info.

Quote: Have you seen any of those lists that circulate on blogs and other websites that ask a series of questions about you? Some of them may contain questions such as "What city were you born in?" or "What was the model of your first car?" Often these lists come with a mandate to pass them on to others, so they can answer the questions too.

You may want to be careful about which questions you answer. I'm not necessarily referring to the questions that you may readily recognize as too personal (e.g. your sex life). It's the simple questions, like those mentioned above, that could present more of a privacy (security) problem for you.

I'd suggest going to Bernie's blog and learn a bit more on this important subject!
