  1. So your real name is shipra? That's all I see.

    1. Your profile page shows:

      Real Name:
      San Francisco

        The Internet is a bit on the scary side when it comes to taking a little bit of information and starts coming up with web pages that fill in the blanks. If Shipra has a Golden Retriever name Bella then I am officially going to guard my anonymity with even more fervor than I do now...and that's all I'm going to say on this subject.

        ADD: If you haven't seen this youtube video then it is more than frightening if you think about identity theft and the criminal element watching us:

      2. Hi, shipra,
