I never minded the obvious fact that they likely troll this site to get info on driver trends, but knowing that they actually might have access to our email addresses and other info kind of gives me the heebies!

It wouldn't surprise me that if they didn't own it from the beginning, they very well may have offered the moderator a big chunk of change to buy it out.
There have been a few drivers that were deactivated directly after saying something about Uber on this website. Uber said it was something they posted online when they asked why they were deactivated.

How could Uber find out that fast unless they have access?

You need to change your name, e-mail, location, birthday, and type of car you drive so it does not reflect what Uber has on your driver account.

If they do not own this site - they may of hacked it or even found a back door that has a blind eye turned to it.

This will probably get deleted. - In the past, when I spoke about Uberpeople being in cahoots with Uber, I have been warned by the admins and posts have been deleted. I thought it was a forum where we can speak the truth?

Anyways, Its not about being crazy or paranoid. Its about protecting yourself online. Its very easy to steal someones identity using the internet. Its not hard for Uber to find out who you are - even if they are not in cahoots - they are a technology company after all.

Although I have not read even a fraction of the posts on this website, I have seen where a person related on this site that he had bad mouthed Uber in an inappropriate way on their Facebook page in a manner where he was specifically identified. They did not like it and pulled his plug. My recollection was "what was he thinking?". As to this site, surely Uber peruses it. And, there is a lot of content and disclosures on this site where I just shake my head. If a person is going to be dumb enough to disparage the company here in a "pull the plug/deactivation kind of way", expect that they might be smart enough to figure out who that same dumb person is. For instance, for a lot of people, you can look back and see disclosures on what kind of car they drive and where, and sometimes particulars of the dates and times that they drove and the amount they were paid, etc. A big data driven company and the very smart programmers could easily search on some of that criteria and figure out who the person is. They don't need to secretly own the site to do that.
