22. I can agree with you somewhat. A year or so ago, my Mom asked
me to go online and try to locate a former SIL of mine. She did a nasty thing to my brother, and my mother was still getting phone calls from collection agencies, etc. THREE years after the incident!!

So, for $9.99, I purchased a temporary membership in one of those "net detective" type places. I was able to locate my ex-SIL, and at the same time I could not resist looking up the records of practically everyone I know. I felt really funny about doing it, too. It was just really gratuitous nosiness. Fortunately, everyone came up clean, but if there had been something there, it wouldn't have been anything I needed to know.

So, even though it's legal, without a good reason it does seem like it's just "being nebby", as we call it here in W. PA.
