Hours of fun for the whole family

Actually, definitely not for the whole family. Some of you will have heard recently about a ruckus at AOL that resulted in some high-profile firings. 3 months’ worth of search data was published online, some of which contained social security numbers – making for an embarrassing privacy breach that’s bound to hit the courts sooner or later.

AOL removed the data but, as Pam & Tommy know all too well, you can never really remove something from the Internet. DontDelete.com has a simple interface for searching the data, including a button that will randomly select a user and display all the searches they ran during that period.

Let’s just say those AOL users have some *interesting* predilections. (If you’re a coffee drinker, suggest you put the cup down to keep monitor clean).
