Zaba on ZabaSearch and Privacy

I was looking for ZabaSearch the other day and accidentally typed in http://www.zaba.com, instead of http://www.zabasearch.com.

What I found was an interesting site by Stefak Zaba, who works for Hewlitt-Packard in the UK in privacy and security, of all things. He has some comments about the people search site that shares his name.

A similar site, PublicRecordsNow, also allows displays basic information about people, but to get more requires a fee. But what's unsettling about ZabaSearch is that it displays addresses of people even if they're unlisted in the telephone directory. And, according to Stefak, there's no way to opt out.
