Once again avoiding geek talk here, there are steps you can take to see what information you are giving away. www.grc.com is a pretty good site that will test your connection and let you know what you need to do to close any security holes. You want the "Shields Up!" section of his site. It is kind of up-and-down sometimes, so if its not up at the moment, try a bit later.
All in all though, getting detailed information about someone through message board postings is a genius-hacker type of activity, so I would say that your exposure here is extremely low.
