I only mention this here because it seems like specifically here in Los Angeles some people might have a bit of a problem with a new site called Zabasearch. Basically you can look up anyone, and buy background checks on them for $40. Very detailed background checks. But forget that, for free they give you their address and phone number. Combine that with the info you can get off of IMDB (or google maps)and you can find anyone in this town you want. Need some producers phone number so you can try to pitch your screenplay? They are all on there. Want some actor’s autograph? Just look up their home address and swing by. Want to go yell at a local politician about a stupid bill they are pushing? Everything you need is on this site. For free.
Yes, this makes me very uncomfortable.
