hmmm yet another Microsoft screwup....

By Jaqui ·
This one in the PRIVACY DEPARTMENT!!!!!
They admitted, publicly, that they took data from your msn searches and handed it to us government, to allow the us government to illegally tap your phones and monitor your internet activities.
That is SPYWARE in action..oh, it's Microsoft in action, the largest spyware company in the world.
Use Microsoft?
Not when they have just proven beyond all doubt that their sole intention is to screw you over, by denying you the rights of existing privacy legislation at thier whim.

You can if you want, just don't expect to be getting any respect from people that Respect Privacy laws.

Another Whiny-baby Liberal Weinie

by Bob B. In reply to hmmm yet another Microsof ...

Oh, Oh, here come the black helicoptors. everybody run to the bunkers! Big Brother is coming! What are you talking about? If you want to whine about invasion of privacy, that's one thing; you may have a valid point there, but to tie it in to the recent NSA wiretaps. Shame on you Chicken Little. Stop trying to scare the sheeple. And if you're using the Internet to contact Al Qaeda or you're searching for kiddie porn, you deserve to be investigated.

get a life!

What federal agency might you work for in Washington DC? The current Administration is taking away peoples rights daily. So are you one of Bushie's minions or just an *** kisser?

Nope and Neither

by Bob B. In reply to Whiny-baby

I don't work for any federal agencies and I'm not one of those dopey Rush Limbaugh ditto heads who thinks Bush can do no wrong and definitely not an a$$ kisser. George W. Bush has made plenty of mistakes along the way, but in general I support most of his actions and policies. I'm just a little tired of liberals always attacking the guy. I'd be fine with that if maye just once they'd have a solution rather than just complaining like little 1st graders and spouting off rhetoric without ever researching to see if what they are saying is actually true. I love to debate politics and foreign policy with people who actually have an opinion based on facts. I lived in the Middle East for 9 years and consider myself to be pretty well informed on how the people of that region think and believe me, they don't think at all like Westerners. Unfortunately I've not found a liberal yet who can hold a decent intellligent conversation on these topics. They always fall back on, "Well so and so says this or that." When confronted with verifiable facts, they always wilt under the pressure. They like to think of themselves as the elite, educated class of people while portraying all conservatives as a buch of dim-witted, toothless hillbiliies but they quickly expose themselves as ignorant, no-class phonies after only a few minutes of rapport. Tune in to www.michaelsavage.com to get a clue. Have a nice day! =;&lt

And the latter is not an example of the former? Or does the former just not apply to you?

Whose responsible...

by esa_batm In reply to hmmm yet another Microsof ...

...for links to this being on every main page. If not you, who is and why and how do we get them to stop throwing up blogs from all and sundry?

Interesting...

This post went from one subject and shot into a whole other arena. LOL... At any rate, I'm simple. If you want to snoop through my dirty laundry, email, wife's diary, etc. just come by and ask (no problemo). If you want to try to be slick and slip your hand into my pocket; be careful, you may loose your hand. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. As for govn's spying (any/all) I'm sure they all do it. The ways and means may be subject to change, but I'm sure all govn's due it to some degree or another. Jaqui, well done. Your post has kept me giggling all night... hehhehehe... if I were still in Seattle I might ask about some of that ole' BC brocolli I've heard so much about. Now let's get back to the "real" debate (I know this already has a thread. In other words, let's get back to tech talk/type). Linux or Vista? how about TRS-80? Peace all...

Microsoft handing it over for it to become newsworthy.

aol and yahoo were expected to hand it over, after all they have done exactly that in the past.
[ yahoo put someone into a Chinese prison by doing so ]

wouldn't matter

I only ever discuss building weapons of mass destruction in person. ]:)

even discussing building delivery systems is only ever done face to face.

and we meet in a "white" room, where they can't use surveillance tech to eavesdrop.

you do know that everything required to build a "cruise" missle is available retail?

you can even buy the materials needed to make a fusion warhead. [ yes, fusion, not fission ]
