Yes, just b/c you don't see it or experience it personally doesn't  
mean it's not happening.  And much of it is subtle and subject to  
personal/cultural differences so there are those issues as well.

Here's tip for any worried about blogging.  Since I use Live Journal  
and don't have access to those server logs I often include a 1 pixel  
by 1 pixel blank "test image" or even an incorrect image reference to  
my own domain.  i.e. in the html of the post I'll add  an image link  
to "<img src="http:/mydomain.com/test.jpg" width="1" height="1">".   
This generates an error in my server logs as well as recording the IP  
and machine info.   This is how I discovered my ex-boyfriend was  
reading my LJ and so I quickly started locking more posts to friends- 
only. . . or in some cases sent out some misinformation just to mess  
with his head.  ;-)
