don't forget about the copy/paste gremlins

That Brazen Careerist guy needs to learn English grammar -- or proofreading! The other article, on branding, was far better and they both do discuss branding yourself but my marketing mind keeps thinking they mean actual branding, in the marketing sense. I don't think they do.

Regardless of any misuse of the term/concept "branding oneself" it should be noted neither article nor any of your prior commentators has pointed out that all it takes is someone from Privacy List A to copy/paste a remark you made to them thinking it was secure to Privacy List B personnel and *poof* all privacy is gone. Some of your readers (Barflies) have done this to me--copied things I said to them in private, one-on-one conversations and pasted them into messages or IMs to others with whom I would specifically have never shared that information.

In case anyone thinks they are safe because regular Googling of themselves does not turn up any incriminating results on cached web pages--think again. Unless you are wiping the memories and copy/paste abilities of everyone with whom you have contact, you never can tell when something you say--or the person to whom you say it--will come back to bite or stab you in the ass.
