Not at all. Wyatt is not unique D Wyatt, Dave or David Wyatt are a bit more
unique. And a person's name is one of the many data that are needed to identify a
person. What I have argued all along is that the email address (name+domain) IS
unique, but it does not mean that in itself it is sufficient either to identify a person, it
might or it might not.
But if you go to www.google.co.uk and search in the uk only for the following
terms: (you can try exact searches by enclosing them in inverted commas etc as
See how you find more information about our David. Let alone if you were to try
my more "unique" opolopoulopoulos name. With the more sparcely populated
scotland it will be easier to hit my name through BT teleophone book etc.
