Another reason to NEVER post personal information anywhere online.

Dating site creates profiles from public records

Non-registered individuals get dating profiles in the US.

Online dating company Gotham Dating Partners has announced plans to create profiles for non-registered individuals based on publicly available information on social networking sites.

Jordan said the site would soon host some 340 million profiles after scraping information from social networking sites, e-mail registries, mailing lists, marketing surveys, government census records, real estate listings and business websites to create new dating profiles.

wtf
Without truth, history will certainly repeat the same wars in time of universal deceit.

Telling the truth has become a revolutionary act, so let us salute those who disclose the necessary facts

ah ffs! shows you how damn prehistoric australia is with privacy laws

from OPs link:
"...Best check your privacy settings

Australian Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgram warned that the automatic creation of identifiable profiles of individuals without their knowledge was "not good privacy practice".

"Organisations covered under the Privacy Act 1988 are generally required to provide individuals with notice that their information is being collected," he told iTnews.

"These organisations should also only use the information for the purpose for which it was collected, must store the information securely, and must delete it when it is no longer needed for that purpose.

"These obligations apply even when the personal information is publicly available."

Pilgrim advised individuals to read websites' privacy policies to ensure they are aware of how their personal information would be used..."

In other words there's major loopholes for aussie ISPs that ALL those social sites have utilised
OR he's a coplete dill that's going to get his arse raked through the coals
OR reverse psy to gain media attention/publicity for dating company.

bah!

Even if what they did, what would that bring? I am not free for dating and any idiot would notice at some time of inconsistencies if some want to base their relationships on the fantasies of somebody else.
