From time to time I wonder about what and how much data someone could pirate off me through my presence on the Web: notably the big “social networking” sites, such as Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn, Twitter. What could a thief get that could be used against me, or used in a way that would piss me off?

I don’t lose a lot of sleep over it; if a bad person wants to do harm, he’ll find a way whether through the Net or other means.

What about you? Do you take Internet steps to prevent damage to your identity, your bank account, your reputation?
