@RE Vernon 1. Id grab your IP address and trace it back to its licotaon. You'd fail at the first hurdle, Bob, since many people connect through offshore proxies, just as I'm doing now (nl.gigabit.perfect-privacy.com). Hint: I'm nowhere near the Netherlands.Since my name is also a pseudonym, running credit checks etc. won't help you either, and thus won't lead you to any of my other personally identifiable information.My phone number is an anonymous PAYG mobile, topped up in cash over the counter.My domain is privacy protected.My postal address is an anonymous forwarding address, that forwards to somewhere I don't even live, but just visit occasionally.My credit card is an anonymous pre-paid card, topped up in cash over the counter.I've never had a driving license.I've never had a prear endport.I've never had any sort of ID card.I've never voted, and therefore I'm not on any electoral register.I've never completed a census questionnaire.I don't have a criminal record. I've never been been arrested, or been fingerprinted, or had a mugshot taken, or had a DNA sample taken.I've never been in the armed forces, or worked for any government agency.I've always been self-employed, working strictly off the books.I've never applied for or collected welfare payments.I've changed my real name since leaving school, so educational records won't help you either.I have no living relative you could use to track me.I have no neighbors who could identify me.About the only real identifying dofoament I own is my birth certificate, and if Google asked for a copy of that, I'd just send them a Photoshopped forgery. If they didn't like it, I'd walk away rather than reveal myself.For all intents and purposes, I simply don't exist.
