Internet Suicide
« on: January 19, 2013, 07:06:33 AM »
Here's a decent article on deleting yourself from the interwebs.


With Google cache and the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, it's near impossible to completely wipe yourself out, but there is some that you can do.

Sick of horribly embarrassing things showing up when potential employers Google your name? Tired of everyone knowing you live in a garden level dungeon apartment? Perhaps you just don't like the fact the internet makes you easy to find. Thankfully, it's not that hard to delete yourself entirely. Here's how to do it.

For mildly famous (or infamous) individuals, disappearing is essentially impossible, but for the average person it's surprisingly easy. It just depends on much info is already out there.

Take some of that with a grain of salt. Or have an inflated perception of yourself - either way. ;) :D

... And with this little note I might have to slow down a bit here. Y'all know the issues I promote, and I have to work on a habit of feeling "pulled" to "close out pending threads to reply to" that I think is affecting my ability to concentrate.
