It's all mixed up

I spent about five years scaring horrible people by releasing parts of their address, not doxing them, just enough to scare them. I convinced one nasty guy he had to delete his index.dat file, knowing he couldn't and he'd freak. He freaked, but luckily didn't kill anyone.

I spent another five years warning really nice people how and why to hide their details. Because, people like me. I mean many bad people are like me, nobody likes me.

We should also ban telephone directories
