Honestly, after I'm gone if y'all want to dig through my files and jack it to the sex tapes I made with my exes, I don't suppose I will know the difference, let alone mind.

/Oh, who am I kidding? It would kind of turn me on today O_o

I wonder if you can get it to email out some generic emails after around a year after you have died (well the account is dormant anyway) just to freak people out.

I think this is a really good idea. Though I'd hate to just be gone for 3 months for some weird reason and have it automatically start sending these notices. I don't know.

Dear Dad,

I am thy son' spirit,
Doom'd for a certain term to walk the night,
And for the day confined to fast in fires,
Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature
Are burnt and purged away. But that I am forbid
To tell the secrets of my prison-house,
I could a tale unfold whose lightest word
Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres,
Thy knotted and combined locks to part
And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porpentine:
But this eternal blazon must not be
To ears of flesh and blood. List, list, O, list!
If thou didst ever thy dear son love--
Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.

Love,

dv-ous

It's actually pretty easy as long as you adhere to a simple set of guidelines, including but not limited to changing usernames and emails often.

I can't wait until some elected asshat in the gubmint decides to use this data as a legitimate source, and pensioners start dropping off the social security roles. (just the Democrats, of course)

"Sir, our records show you are deceased, therefore your continuing benefits have been terminated. You'll need to apply for your benefits again, and appeal the decision, which can take up to three years due to our backlog."

Need more coffee - the paranoia and misdirected rage is not strong enough yet.

Set this up to send to anyone a few years after you think you're going to be dead. It's creepy no matter what, I sent myself an email in 2007 to be deliver in 2010 and it truly creeped me out when I got it. I'd forgotten about it and wondered WTF kind of spam it was for a second.

Hi This is Majick

I am either away from my desk or I have died. If you don't receive a reply within a reasonable time frame I guess you'll know which one.

Thx

The Internet has been around for over a decade, and Google is the first one to take this issue seriously for items other than just e-mail. It's amazing that the state of the Internet is really still in its infancy for how much it is used in the everyday lives of so many people.

This will never take the place of having a good friend who knows how to, upon your death or indefinitely unknowable whereabouts, get into your house and delete all your "sensitive" data before your parents, wife, or whoever else gets hold of it.

I pay a ninja to be on constant alert for this type of operation. It practically pays for itself.

Shame about Facebook. I don't use it, but knowing my full name will find you my birthday, where I went to college, my wife's name and where she works, despite her having the highest 'privacy' settings, all thanks to the innocent actions of our friends. That requires nothing more than Google. Dig further and, perhaps with a willingness to undertake acts which are illegal in the UK (though both incredibly unlikely to be prosecuted and legal in the US), you can find out my address history, credit rating, and numerous other personal details.
