A little paranoid, aren't we? I don't think that being an Amiga fan and related info is something abusable, I would rather be worried about other places that require you to enter your name...


You must be excessively naive. Who is minimig.net? You don't know, anonymous registrar (below). Why do they need your name and email to locate you on a map? They don't, so why are they collecting that information - you don't know. How is the data being stored? Who has access to it? You don't know.

You might as well print out flyers with your name, address and email on them and toss them about town.

@ Boot_WB: :D

@ jorkany: I've never really understood what use is when you know somebody's name and address. I mean you could go around town writing down names you see on doorbells - what's the difference? Now if you know something about the people who live there, that's different. But I don't know how can anyone use the fact that you're an Amiga fan against you. I'd be happy if they put my name and address into some contextual advertising campaign list and sent me ads for new Amiga HW :)
Yes, you also fill in your email address, but I have one for exactly this type of thing so what...
Maybe I really am too naive...

I'll second that sentiment.  Good concept, bad delivery.

I can't really see what's stopping the paranoid people from just making up the information they  don't wish anyone else to know?

If there's more information required than you think is necessary, just type some random street name, phone number or whatever it is. Or am I missing something here?

I'm still not on the Google Amiga Map and it's not going to happen. Nothing to do with paranoia just common sense. Why the need for all the personal info?

I'm on the map. I also dislike the fact of giving away my email. But considering the scope of people possible to be put out there' I suppose it's not a big deal.

But if it wasn't about Amiga... never
Was: Mac Mini PPC running MorphOS 2.4
Now: Amiga Forever 2010 with AmiKit and AmigaSYS
Not used: Icaros Desktop 1.2 (reason: no wifi)
Planned soon: an OS4 system
Shortly then: a MOS notebook (wifi is a must-have)

I got as far as placing my chip on the map, but then it wanted too much info so I gave up.

Clearly you've never heard of Anonymous. With that amount of detail they could literally ruin your life.
