Removing birthdate...

Are there really only two options for removing a birthdate from IMDb (which is visible through even just a Google search: welcome all creeps!):

1. Pay for Pro subscription, and hope to delete it

2. Delete account all together, and hope for best

Are these really the only way to protect our privacy, especially when I never agreed for that info to go public?

I've already had my identity stolen once. I'd really prefer not to have you help them again with providing my birthdate for all the world to see.

@Bethanny​ Thanks for NOT answering the question I posed, and replying with a blanket statement concocted to be the answer to every one of these types of questions. So, it would be your policy, if you were to get access to my social security number, to go ahead and publish that too. No matter at what price for one's security. And to publish everyone's addresses too?

Your policy is erroneous and dangerous, and my birthdate is none of your or anyone else's business. From where did you get it anyway? And what gave you the right to publish it? Please answer this so I may forward it to my lawyer.
