It's very disturbing. I try to keep a pretty small footprint. Don't use Facebook or Twitter. This is only social media I use.
Last night I type my name into Google and there is all my info. Even my home address. Type in my wife and same thing. It's from when we registered to vote.
It also shows other people on my street, their age, and their address.
I think it's bull#.
I'm pretty sure I didn't consent to that info being made public when I registered.
I wonder if it is just some strange rule in my state that when you register it goes up.
You ever search yourself?

The answer is to have the same name as somebody better known (I share my name with a fairly prominent sculptor).
Then the entries relating to the other person will drown out all the entries relating to you, and not even your friends will be able to find you.

You all miss the point. You may use anon names. But not every one does. You can use a name from 1995, with information about you on some comment section. Then 1998, that same name with a new email address linked somewhere. Then 2001 with that email address linked to different information. then 2005 with some of those details linked to a new net name, then 2007 with that net name linked to a new email, and that email then links to yet more information. that information then leads to a name, a place. from there, in 2013 you still use it, but all of the information behind it with google as it is now, leads to google street view. your dog, your siblings, your first car, your hobbies, your likes/dislikes, you are easy to find.
2017, you claim the NSA is onto you, but you gave it all out yourselves... crazy..
Damn, I made more than one idiot run off usenet back in the day, today it's much easier.
