If you enter a multi-word phrase, such as Anthony Chappell, into a search engine, it will return all hits on either word.

Type "Anthony Chappell" (with the quotation marks to denote that it is a phrase) into Yahoo and you will return 12 hits. These include several for Gerald Anthony Chappell, one for Karen and Anthony Chappell, one for Larry Anthony Chappell and such sites as and (a major US bank).

If you post to any Internet message board, or if you post your email on the Internet, you are essentially erecting a bulletin board advertising your existence to the entire world. Anything you post here, or on any other website, is likely to be picked up by many search engines. The owner/organizer of this site, or any other site, can do nothing to prevent that.

Anthony, your complaint is comparable to saying you took out a full page ad in USA Today, including international editions, the London Times, NY Times, Washington Post and thousands of other newspapers and now are distressed that people know your name.

Learn the rules of the road before you drive.
