Bring attention from law enforcement – yes, maybe.. depends on what you write. Can it affect a job interview – in theory, if someone knows who you are and for some reason is stalking you all over the Internet, although very improbable. Is someone trying to predict your credit risk – no, why would they use anonymous forum data for that.There is a lot of data proliferating out there, marketers use even trivial information for their research. Could it affect a job interview, or even bring attention from law enforcement agencies? The labeling part I projected onto this information superhighway topic would be labels along the lines of "likely to vote liberal" or "bad credit risk" or something like that. I wondered if somone's ranting on the internet could be a red flag to the politically motivated, like US Homeland Security, or foreign terrorists. How does the internet view INTP forum?

Before I lost my facebook account password I encountered a company called "nametest". They are a data analysis company in Europe. I did some tests and some were interesting. I had a lot of my preferences on my profile and Facebook collects all your cookies, even by licensing through popular websites. Data statistically can be pinpointed to one computer, generally. Servers record the "surface web". The deep web activity is harder to correlate. Correlations are how most intelligence work is done. So correlations and pinpointing combine with psychological analysis to understand and predict what you will do by what you are into. You are a hub in a network that follows stochastic path walking. Networks following correlation maths achieve a mapping of almost everything, most notably people. This is how everything is connected to everything else, minus what they are not connected to.All the data we put on the internet, however unconsequential it may seem, might be of importance to someone- and you wouldn't know it.
that's true. That's why I don't use google (I use duckduckgo) and never used facebook or anything like that. Also in the process of switching from gmail to encrypted mail at protonmail.All the data we put on the internet, however unconsequential it may seem, might be of importance to someone- and you wouldn't know it.
