Well, I guess since we don't know who you're talking about or who you
are, or what company you work for, I guess we're all safe then, right?

Seriously folks, Anon has a point, and so do others (like me). On one
hand, people are going to monitor mailing lists and google their
applicants to see what they're potentially letting through the door.
If you're afraid of what someone might be able to dig up, then
straighten up and fly right. If you prefer not to hide your
personality and are willing to let the chips fall where they may, have
a blast.
