Are you freaking kidding me? Checking up on people over the internet is the greatest tool for you to leave your name exactly where you WANT it to be and make yourself look exactly the way you want.
For example, fall out as a charitable, trustworthy person. Sign at such forums, groups and leave your name left and right. Leave comments in your favor. Link to the urls bearing your precious blessed soul posts ensuring they hit top 100 results in google. Create fake FB/twitter, you name it accounts and do you own PR for a few days.
You'll make yourself look like jackpot, like the employer's grand prize of the year, like a candidate for the next Nobel freaking prize.
Just don't overdo it. Go at it gently, just enough to fool them all - if fooling is needed that is.
So don't be afraid of your name being displayed anywhere for your future employers, banks, insurance companies to see. Be happy that someone invented the internet, a tool, to fool navive detective wanna be employers.
