Update 8/4: Okay, it’s fixed. But they have no idea where their third-party data comes from.
Update: This company fucking sucks. Two weeks of emails, and no changes. Also, see this new horrible screenshot:
This has been ongoing for awhile, but I keep forgetting to write about it. Spokeo, that delightful tool of stalkers, has me listed as a militant for reasons that I really don’t understand. I’ve checked all the edits to my Wikipedia page, and searched my name with the term, but the only thing that comes up are a handful of articles I’ve written about terrorism and the Internet. A click-through to my Spokeo profile shows that the rest of the info has been pulled directly from Wikipedia. Although I’m unsure where the label of ACTIVIST+JOURNALIST AND TRAVEL WRITER at top comes from, it’s not inaccurate.
In any case, I’ve got a query out to the company and hope to hear back soon.
