While this is good advice, someone I have "just met" has actually, well, met me and knows who I am.

Yeah. I tend to worry a little more about what I put on message boards, but I'm sure that if you have an online presence and tell people real things, like where you live, they could find out all sorts of information about you. The thing is, I tend to believe that a great deal of privacy is already gone, just because of the invention of the internet. Even if you don't put your information online, your county clerk has put the house you own, with your full name, house value, etc out there. Your voter data is out there. A TON of other stuff is out there. So, what are you going to do?

Don't put banking info or an SSN or anything obvious but basic information is easy to find.
