What's the first thing I do when meeting someone new, whether it's a business acquaintance, my child's classmates parents, new co-worker, boss or even neighbor?
Check them out online.
Hell, I check out people on eBay from whom I'm either buying or selling. I check out parents, potential clients, etc. All it takes is a few clicks to find out if someone is legitimate or a phony.
In the past, when I've hired nannies or housekeepers, I'll pay $45 dollars for a full background check.
EVERYONE'S life revolves around the internet. We've had people on Chiefsplanet OUT people, for ****'s sake, for nothing more than being a true douchebag.

Sorry, I'm not buying it for one single second.
