    How do they get a 3rd party like me to remove all references (text, video, images, etc) of you on my website? I can find posts I made in the 80s on Google's archive of USENET. Never mind all the archives from newspapers, high schools, colleges, etc. How do they remove those?

    Point being it is near impossible to cleanse yourself, vs starting over with new ID.

There were plenty of East Germans that were happy as larks (not just their ruling class) because they genuinely liked living that way or they just didn't know any better. More .gov control, Democrat and Republican, is what wins votes in this country too unfortunately.

    Whoa.... I can't decide if that was 100% bullshit, or totally brilliant.

    There are no restrictions on owning Ham gear. Listening in on Amateur communications is perfectly legal.

(Digital mode transmissions can be encoded, but the algorithms used are open-source and computer programs are available to decode and read these transmissions.) In fact, the openness of Amateur Radio is often a hindrance when providing emergency or disaster communications, because of privacy laws (especially HIPPA).

    Amateur Radio is self-policed. The FCC does not have the resources to constantly monitor all Ham frequencies all across the country all of the time. There are Hams who sign up to be "Official Observers", who can document misuse of the bands, but it takes weeks or months of monitoring and documenting abuses before they can file a case with the FCC. And then, the FCC may check things out, but always on their own timetable. And this is only if you're illegally transmitting...They can't find you when you're just listening.

    No one cares if you're listening. In fact, it's encouraged! If it sparks your interest enough that you decide to get licensed and join in the fun, so much the better for our hobby!
    Lol at “Official Observers”. Those kind of people....

    Errrrmmmmaaagooddd u got u lizense sun!!? Reminds me of the folks who ask to see peoples stamps and are 922r Nazis.

    You won't be able to disappear from a national level alphabet organization unless you're a homeless drifter, you'll be on the grid in some form.

    There is a book by JJ Luna called "How To Be Invisible" that was a fairly interesting read, would be a pain to live in such a way.

    The best you can hope for is to minimize your digital footprint and make it more difficult for ID thieves, hackers and doxxers. If the govt wants you, they'll get you by hook or by crook.

    A pretty good read.
