Twittering just got a little C-R-E-E-P-Y

I'm cross-posting because I think this is an important thing to mention.

Okay. Today I was innocently googling for a lost blog that I used to share with some female cyclist friends. When I googled the terms I was looking for, I got two top hits that linked to her blogs and a truckload of my own Twitterings right beneath. I scanned the page and was thinking, Huh! I'm surprised but it's fine and dandy--WAIT A MINUTE! I came across one of dubious nature at the w3top.org site. Using MY Twitter information, they have created a FAKE Twitter-Date hook-up site for ... me? ... based out of the Netherlands? Say WHAT?!?

According to them, I'm also seeking a: woman. Uh-uh ... No, I don't think so!

Like I said, Twittering just got a little creepy, if only because other people use my public information for things of dubious and unauthorized use. My next question is, "How do I make them stop?"

Yeah, that site created one for me too. Bastards. If you Google my name (minus the "ro" in Roberta) a ton of fake twitter-esque stuff comes up on the 2nd and 3rd pages. It really upsets me. That is not what I want people to see.
