    This scared the hell out of me. I just learned of this "search engine".
    There is a lot more information about me and my family on there than I thought possible.

    Pretty easy to remove oneself from the results.

    Like Big Brother

    (Or is this old news?)

    The info they have on me is mostly innacurate.

    It's grossly inaccurate so that it's completely useless. If I was looking for info on somebody, this wouldn't be something I'd rely on.

    It has my gender and age right. That's about all I can say for it though.

    I'm in it, but almost all of the info is inaccurate.

    It had my address, phone number, my kids' names, etc.
    Too accurate and too intrusive for my liking.

    Spokeo has me pegged as a late 50's Gemini with 4 children. I enjoy shopping, and am not interested in politics. I have moderate credit and high wealth. I am married and have lived in my house for 15 years.

    Sounds like I am a pretty cool fucking guy. Shit, it sounds like I'm Dakota Rube.
    BTW, the picture also shows someone younger than me, as a guy in his late 50s.
