I hoped that when I set my characters on My.lotro to not show any feeds and had my account set to anonymous that folks would not be able to know who my alts are. I suppose on My.lotro you can not look up one character and see who that players other characters are if set to anonymous, correct me if I am wrong, I can't seem to match up player alts here on My.lotro.
Anyhow, I saw someone post a link to this Alt Finder site in glff the other day. I was curious, so I checked it out. Man was I surprised to see a list of my alts when I typed in 1 of my characters name and hit search. I sent Alt Finder a letter, asking how is this possible and how I could have my toons removed from their site. Again I was surprised to get a response, they said they get the info from My.lotro.
I would understand why a troll would want themselves to be anonymous, so that folks can't find out what their other toons are on My.lotro. I would rather not have other folks not know who my alts in some cases. For instance, I have a auction house character that I use to sell stuff there, nothing made from my toons of course, because I don't want players to know that character is mine as well. Also, I would rather a troll not know who my alts are, so that they don't continue to harass me. In fact, I have told no one who this AH character is, and have been really careful not to do anything that would compromise that. Yet there is, listed with my other toons on this Alt Finder site.
What is the purpose of being anonymous on My.lotro if people can just go to another site to get the information that was gathered from My.lotro?
Now I am not saying that the My.lotro site is not working as intended, but where is the option to prevent other sites from gathering information from My.lotro, that I can't even seem to gather because supposedly some accounts are anonymous and that info should not be accessible to others? Gear and stats I could care less for, but knowing who all my alts are is not acceptable.
