You gotta check this out! Just when you thought you were safe....

BLOCK YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
This is upsetting, thought I should pass it along. Check your drivers license... Now you can see anyone's Driver's License on the Internet, including your own! I just searched for mine and there it was...picture and all!

Thanks Homeland Security! Privacy, where Is our right to it? I definitely removed mine, I suggest you all do the same.....

Go to the website and check it out. Just enter your name, City and state to see if yours is on file.

After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove". This will remove it from public viewing, but not from law enforcement.

Cute. But god only knows what kind of information mining the site is *really* doing, since a participant will type in his or her first and last name, city, and state, and the website gets other identifying information from the user's browser... This kind of spoof website is often used as a seemingly-harmless joke cover for spyware installation and other nasy stuff. But I'm too busy to check any further right now...
