Wow, where do I start? For one, their op-out information is almost impossible to find. I had to go back and forth with their customer support via email to find out that, if you want to delete yourself from being listed, you have to send them an email containing the following:

Dear Been Verified Customer Support:

As per your privacy policy, please remove my listing from your databases:

a. First name:
b. Last name:
c. Middle initial:
d. Aliases & AKA's:
e. Current address:
f. Age:
g. DOB:

Second, even if you take the time to do the above, *they put your information back up on the site in 3 months.* It's absurd.

I'm not going to comment on their paid services because I've never gotten them, but I'd be wary based on others' complaints alleging credit card fraud and big, deceptive charges.

Why are these people search sites even legal?

Twitlonger.com

Twitlonger

The original tool for when 140 characters isn't enough. It was originally developed by twitter fans unaffiliated with twitter itself. Purists will tell you that 140 characters HAS to be enough, but Twitlonger definitely has its uses. I withheld a 4-star rating because it's a bit slow and weird at times, but it gets the job done.

Foodler.com

Great if you want to avoid as much social interaction as possible when ordering food. That, or if you're just lazy. I also like that it gives you a clear set of all the restaurants within delivery distance of where you live.

FitDay

FitDay

Incredibly valuable diet management system for free. Weight loss comes down to calories in, calories out, and FitDay helps you manage all of it in an easy-to-use interface. You can even input your workouts, although my one complaint about the site is that they don't include some common exercises, like the elliptical. You often have to input your own custom foods by using the nutritional labels, but they're all saved on your account so it's a one-time deal.

Etsy

Etsy

I can't believe there are only 37 reviews for Etsy when it's become such an integral part of online shopping. It's an amazing online marketplace for custom, unique goods; things you can't get anywhere else. It's especially cool for geeks who have really specialized interests. All my experiences with vendors have been quality. Highly recommend checking out Etsy.

Found this site after a friend told me that they deleted her name and address from spokeo for free, which was cool. I had a live chat with someone from deleteme, their site that deletes accounts and pages and things, to see if they'd be able to remove my name from mylife.com. I have no idea how they had my info, but it's one of the top google results for my name. They were able to do it no problem. It's a good concept for a service and I can see a lot of people needing to use it in the future.

Ninwiki.com

Man, what can I even say about this site that will do it justice? If you're a NIN fan, this is the ultimate resource. Lyrics, discography, photos, tons of info on Trent, trivia for the hardcore fans...it's all here. It's also an awesome source for NIN news.
