This old coot has pretty good advice for how to protect your online identity.
Brings new meaning to hacker.
Mr. Forthright tells it like it is, even when he doesn't say much at all. Being forthright is, after all, kind of his thing. We all want to protect our online identity, but there's one major flaw in all of our plans: we have online identities. In fact, if you stopped using Facebook and took out enough cash to not use credit cards for a few months, I'm pretty sure most major websites' algorithms will declare you dead, and then you can start over as anyone. Like, for example, a crotchety old man who dispenses sage but cranky advice (like about how to get the best Halloween candy). Whoah.
