RE: Mozilla has launched StopWatching.Us petition website

<quote user="evilfantasy"> Do you really believe that someone can be anonymous on the Internet? Everything you do while connected to the WWW is logged by some server, somewhere. You can add extra steps and hoops to jump through to slow someone down finding out what you are doing or have done but you...

RE: Mozilla has launched StopWatching.Us petition website

I'm sorry but I have no faith in this government listening to the will of the people. Rather than sign petitions that only serve to give the government a list of people to monitor all the more I would rather assume I'm being monitored and take steps to reduce the effectiveness of the monitoring. Use...

RE: Invasion of Privacy.

I consider any information that is not public to be private. Public information includes phone numbers, addresses, property ownership records, etc. Who I call with my phone or who calls me is private. The contains of my emails or the websites I visit are private. I know that the phone company or my ...

RE: Stop The Massive Government Spying Program !

Signing petitions (on-line or hardcopy) will not stop programs like PRISM. The only way to stop this is to elect better people to public office. This is not a republican / democrat issue - both parties are guilty. We need to elect people who respect and believe the Constitution. This needs to happen...

Will PRISM cause you to change your on-line behavior?

Now that we have proof that the US government is monitoring phone calls and on-line activities as part of the PRISM project, will you change your on-line behavior? Will you be more carefully about what you post on Facebook / Twitter / or your blog? Even if you are not concerned about the government ...

RE: Finland - The Least Corrupt Country

The headline from the posted link reads "Governments must prioritise the fight against corruption". Unfortunately in most cases it is the government that is the source of the corruption. Government cannot protect you from itself; that is why the government that governs the least is the best. That is...

RE: the story how you found WOT

I was getting a lot of spam, mostly pornographic in nature, so I started researching better spam filters. I found SpamBayes and WOT about the same time. They do different things but they both came up in the Google results. If you have not tried SpamBayes give it a shot. It works very well. As for WO...

RE: Vigilant Video and the National Vehicle Location Service

<quote user="Sheepdog079"> Privacy? Why is everyone fighting it? Reality is nothing is private anymore. Between social media, marketing data and the like. Two fundamental questions: 1.

RE: Large-Scale Behavioral Targeting

What should worry everyone is that if a company, or group of companies, can do this imagine what certain three letter government agencies could do. Given the current scandals involving the IRS and DOJ protecting our privacy - online and offline - is more important than ever.

RE: Do you click the WOT scorecard link on bit.ly links before c

I think the question is valid and appropriate for the WOT forum as it relates to how people use WOT to have a better Internet experience. My answer is it depends on where and how I found the bit.ly link. If it from a site I know and trust, then I'm likely to just click the link. If it is from a site...
