THIS SHOULD SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU

The problem with people putting information online is that people are stupid and don’t understand what they’re doing or how to do it properly.

As an information professional, a librarian, and a citizen of the Internet; this Google search scares me. What is it? Well, if you typed it out, this is what you would type:

filetype:rtf | filetype:ppt | filetype:pptx | filetype:csv | filetype:xls | filetype:xlsx | filetype:docx | filetype:doc | filetype:pdf “this document is confidential” site:gov

And in essence what it’s doing is searching governmental sites for any and all document types with the word “This document is confidential” in it.

So much for confidentiality.
