The Digital Disappearing Act: Happy Birthday!
I have steadily been making headway on purging unneeded accounts across the web over the past few months.
However, to my surprise, my birthday illustrated just how far I have to go. Why? Because that’s the day that many websites and forums like to send you a ‘happy birthday’ alert e-mail.
In just one day, I found over a half-dozen new accounts that I didn’t even know existed, including:
- nV News
- Gamingforce Interactive
- Ultimate RC Forums
- Free Web Hosting Talk
All of these accounts are dead — some never lived in the first place. However, they all link back to me in some way. Again, none of this is anything I’d be personally concerned about but why have it out there unless its serving a purpose?
