If you're on Etsy, you may want to check your privacy settings. Short version: they rolled out a new function to make Etsy work more like a social network, which includes letting YOUR REAL NAME, if you've put it in, and ALL YOUR PURCHASES, if you haven't opted out of that, show up if someone searches for you.

I've only ever bought catnip eyeballs and a vintage toast rack on Etsy but I'll be damned if THEY get to make the decision to let that be public. (Luckily, I hadn't ever bothered to fill out my profile, so they didn't have my real name. I'm "telophase" on there also, and haven't really tried to hide the connection between my online presence and my real name but IT'S THE PRINCIPLE OF THE THING, DAMMIT)
