I'm less concerned with people - even those with nefarious intentions - trying to do a DMV (motor vehicle) records search for my address for two reasons:
1) California state law classifies driver's home addresses as private information and requires a court order for disclosure; and,
2) because of what my wife's occupation, all of our vehicles' associated information are statutorily shielded - even LEOs who punch in our plates while on the road will show my wife's work address (of course, a court order can pierce that veil).
I do believe, however, in prudence because I do not believe that it is possible to maintain any semblance of privacy or anonymity on the ’net and what seems like “random” ramblings, stream of consciousness, or pontifications can be culled into data points that can paint a mosaic of an identity, presence, or profile.
I worry less about license plates, which are publicly displayed in "real life" - after giving it some further thought amidst the existence of the layers of protection mechanisms we have in place - and more about carelessly announcing the specifics of WHEN I will be out-of-town, for example, in the "virtual life."
Bottom line for me is using discretion about "TMI" - things that should remain private should remain just that ...
