When I was using CU-SeeMe on a reflector (with my "Nickname"), a man asked
me about my home town area (his typing my address and location). Since I
only used my nickname I know my IP # is there too), how did he get my name
and home address? This can be a little scary. I know my name comes up on
the email portion (as above). Someone told me NOTHING is confidential on
the Internet and I would never give a credit card number, etc. but, I would
like to think my home address is confidential. Any comments on how he did
this?
