I think it's a good reminder for people to know that information on the internet is NOT private. If you have a user ID that identifies you with a 2 second google search, then you are knowingly putting your information out there. Also, AKC's records are a matter of public record. Anyone can go on there and look up a dog. In addition, many of us have Facebook and in addition to your real name (if you choose to put it on there), there is a ton of personal information that people can look up if you don't have it set to private.
Sites such as spokeo.com have all kinds of information on people here in the US. If you look up your name and state, it even has a picture of your house! (Because the google street map site is public). Also, people in your family, and even what your house appraised for. This is all free and public information. I found it rather shocking!
If there is information that you don't want people to know, you need to guard your privacy yourself. Otherwise people can look up pretty much anything they want.
OH, on the spokeo site, if you want your info removed - just copy the URL with your info on it and go to privacy and put it in there. They will then send a link to your email to have it removed. I did it with mine!
