His point, and I have to agree _IF_ you think privacy is a concern here
(I don't happen to agree) is that:

Private Customer
Private Address
San Jose, CA 95121-1520


Private Customer
Private Address
Toronto, ON V5K3W1

_IS_ a privacy concern.  Both of those locations actually narrow things down
to a small enough search area that you have a decent chance of finding 
through relatively simple methods.  (Check the links Michael posted for one
set of possible examples.).  I'll refrain from posting a tutorial on any
of the simpler techniques I know here.

If this message was not signed with gpg key 0FE2AA3D, it's probably
