As ironic as it is, I'd think about deleting this post.

i think that with so many people doing identity theft and bots scouring the internet looking for public posted emails and such, this could invite someone to just "mess" with the original poster...
im sure we all agree that keeping as little personal info on public websites about ones self is more preferred...

Michael, I can't think of what damage could be done if you had someone's license plate number and knew their name...? Is it that they would figure out the address and then go look for that vehicle on the street to try to break in to steal the equipment...? Trying to follow your thought process on this.
That being one of the reasons. I've SEEN a steadicam package left on the street in a vehicle before. I didn't know another Steadicam owner lived around me, but while walking my dog one morning (about 7:30 am, so it was obviously there overnight) I saw it, and it was still there later that afternoon. It like he was hoping to get it stolen for the insurance claim. The sled was in the front seat with the seat belt around it???????
But one can obtain: Name, address, insurance information, driver's license information (number), possibly social security number, and other things from it.
The chances are slim and obviously anybody following you could get the license plate number anyway, but hackers are another story.
Should someone hack into this website, they have one piece of private information about him that can pretty much allow them to get all the rest should he/she choose.
There's a reason they fuzz the license plates of people on live/reality TV shows. You can obtain an awful lot of information about someone from them.
Of course the chances are very slim anyone would want to with the original poster, but still, would you give out your driver's license number or social security number on the internet too? You can't find out personal information about people from telephone numbers and email addresses, but with other things yes, and therefore I just suggested it to take the "better safe than sorry" route.
His choice though.

Depends where you are living. In Holland this SOA means "Sexual transmittable deseases" (spelling?) and I´m not sure you would be happy with that
just noticed my plate number was "428 SOA" A sign maybe?
Go see a doctor!
