- The common Acronym "ID" IIRC is short for "Identity document"
- Many (most) identity documents are not in card form - eg. passport.--snoyes 18:50, 27 Dec 2003 (UTC)
- Done. Merged.
From the article: Portable documentary identifiers may date from the days of the Roman Empire.

Declaring an interest
For clarity's sake, my comment about checking the NPOV of my edits to this article is because I must declare an interest, as a campaigner against the current ID card proposals of the British government. — OwenBlacker 13:01, Jun 26, 2004 (UTC)
"In some countries like Spain, if their identity, age or citizenship cannot be ascertained, laws on foreigners may give them a longer term for pleading or staying, compared to adult nationals of states like Morocco, that have signed fast repatriation agreements."
Too specific and would have to be checked for accuracy. Rephrased. David.Monniaux 22:42, 15 Dec 2004 (UTC)
this page reads like a self-conscious blog
some pov editing is needed: the page is like a two headed man trying to get up the nerve to whup himself
This article is incorrect, it is compulsory in Canada to have ID card on your person. if u are caught by the cops without ID you can be charged for failure to provide ID or something like that.
Countries with non-compulsory cards
Just a few references:
Austria: http://www.help.gv.at/Content.Node/3/Seite.030900.html Canada: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pub/transporters/Appendix2-2.html Netherlands: http://www.bprbzk.nl/echtheidskenmerken/kenmerken_1997_2001/2001/gb/nlreisdocumenten/indexID.htm
Sounds like BS
- law enforcers can discover people who suffer from dissociative identity disorder (e.g. Billy Milligan) when they found people claim their names which is not consistent with the name on their identity cards.
removing. if you wnt to put it back you might reference it first and explain why a policeman who checks ID would want to know this
This page needs more info like which famous people wore pendants, lots of stories and LOTS OF INFO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It also lacks any discussion on non-govermental ID cards, such as ones used by companies and others.-- atuomi 10:10 30.9.2006 (GMT+2)
Phishing is unaffected ?
It is not true to say that Phishing is unaffected by ID cards. If you use a smartcard to authenticate, then there is no password to steal and smartcards can't be stolen by phishing (yes the unlock code could be, but you still need the physical token)
DNA is an identity card ?
It depends how much you spend on the testing. Standard DNA profiling tests don't look at the whole DNA, but pick out 13 "loci" which characterise people. Each locus is common to about 10% of the population with little overlap. This means that if you test all 13 loci, the chances of being wrong are pretty small but this is expensive (although costs are plummeting). A typical test might only cover 3 loci in which case there is a 1/1000 chance of being wrong.
Why is an Identity Document on say "o identify a person"?
Could a o identify Document not also identity "things"?
