Just out of curiosity, do any of you mind if the whole world knows your home address? You have just handed out 10 reference points and distances for someone to triangulate your postcode.

We know where you live. :ap:

to be honest, i wondered about this so i tried it out for fun on one of the lists - reckon i've managed to narrow it down to about 2 or 3 roads

i'd be concerned the actual site could be used to trace people

edit: i've actually just been challenged by someone to have a go at finding where they live from their list - he/she tells me i've just told them the road they live on

At the same time, it's fifteen or so addresses per postcode by and large. You'll need a big sack, Patrick...

Not always. My parents live in a 2 house postcode.

Besides, I wouldn't want someone to know which street I am on with weirdos like this around: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/n...re/8040178.stm.

mukashi*2 is right, guys - always be cynical on the net and always be careful what you give out

By and large, MM, by and large... I think my postcode currently covers 20 addresses and yet it would be considered quite exclusive. A mid-city terrace would be double that and probably a couple besides.

And as for a block of flats...
