Yeah, just think about how easy it is really to hack into computer to get personal data. On the top of it volunteering in providing info like date of birth and name of parents???? it is all some people need to really get to you.

Besides, even if it is not that serious, who is really asking those questions and why? they are really personal. It almost look like a personal profile that could be really used to " customize" junk email towards you at best. After all your emails are already available for most of the time right? so if somebody is collecting info about what kind of products you might be being pushed to than what is easier than make you to admit.. food, cars... other habbits.. lifestyle, credit... it all can be really guessed from this profile that that person is pushing.

I am not saying this has to be used against you even through the author of that post, but than again there is a lot of bad guys and automated internet spy programs that browse sites like this and collect - harvest if you will - data that can be used to market advantage or worse.

So beware! and watch what you post. Who else will protect you?
