    I happen to have an ex-neighbor who turned stalker. He stalked me for 4 years, and I finally lost him when I moved. I don’t have an online presence because of him. If my potential employers want to imagine all kinds of crazy stuff, that’s their problem. It just means I wouldn’t want to work for them anyway….paranoid jerks.

      And about congruence, don’t they realize that people can easily say whatever they want on their LinkedIn, as well as on their resume??? What idiots. Thanks for the video. 😉
