xpurple Small online footprint ( comments)

I've worked very hard to leave a small online footprint of my personal life with the exception of nicknames that people I work for don't know.

It's confused a few places I've tried to get jobs at "You don't have facebook!?"

I do, but it's not in my real name and I don't share it with places I work. Same as all other things on the internet.

Indonesian Man Faces Five Years For Atheist Facebook Post

xpurple Re:He deserves it (907 comments)

No, but you can lose your job. Not to mention your children in a custody case.

When my daughter asks what people in church do, I tell her "They go there to talk to imaginary friends and think they are helping people."

She respond "That's crazy daddy!"

I nod.

People who believe in imaginary sky gods are insane. Sadly they rule the planet.

How does that work for me? I live on a private drive (which is marked private) that is rather long. Google has pictures of my place showing that they ignored my privacy.
