Key takeaways from this incident are:
1/ Use unique email addresses with each organisation you share data with
2/ Don't share accurate information unless absolutely necessary
3/ Although my password was not breached, unique passwords are vital
4/ If you need to share a phone number, consider a second SIM and dual SIM phone or consider a service like mysudo
5/ Sign up to Troy Hunt's HIBP
6/ Exercise your rights under privacy legislation and complain when they are not upheld
Oops, I haven't been keeping up on my game tracking here. #94: Tokyo Mirage Sessions, #95 Golden Axe II, #96 Streets of Rage, #97 Flicky, #98 Golden Axe III, #99, Suikoden 5. My second highest number of finished games in a year, only 1 short of last year. Probably blame Suikoden for that, took 82 hours to finish.
@zaitcev BTW, I think that Conception TV show was originally a (pretty lousy) game series.

Of course, maybe you could defeat it by sending two connection packets from every client...
Was going to share the spotify wrapped thing, but unfortunately their link doesn't seem to work properly to show my data.
