You Want To Opt Out Of This Right Now

Go here and opt out of this thinly-veiled free “doxx” site right now. Really. Stop reading this, go and do it, then come back. I’ll wait.  The term “doxx” (or “dox”) means “search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.” The site in question was written up by The Washington Post, otherwise it would be blessedly consigned to Internet anonymity.  Yet, for no apparent reason other than to spill some ink, they chose to headline an article “You’ve probably never heard of this creepy genealogy site. But it knows a lot about you.” Well, duh, now everyone’s heard of it.
