I found me on Google

by bpaolucci / April 11, 2005 9:26 AM PDT

Read a suggestion in a magazine - everyone should Google themselves just to see what's out there. Well I did and was amazed to find some of the emails I've sent along with a ton of other people who have the same name as I do.

How did Google get my emails? Don't they have to ask me for permission before putting my emails up? I consider this an invasion of my privacy and I'd like to know how they end up having my emails.

Anyone out there know what's going on? I suggest each of you google your own name and see what you find. Now I have to try finding me on other browsers.
