While I know that it's a good thing someone reached out to help someone online like this, I can't help but be a bit freaked out that someone could find out enough information about you to do that. I post online specifically because it's separate from my offline self (well, and the silly forum games). I'm always a bit uncomfortable about the fact that I don't really know how much information people can gather about me given just this xkcd-forum account.
My facebook was found/know, and everyone on it was messaged. Someone knew where I lived, and called the police. It REALLY helped. Saved my life several times over, and I am extremely grateful to the people here who did it (they know who they are).
