TR's Hot Topic: Big brother is watching you watch Star Trek

TR'S HOT TOPIC: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU WATCH STAR TREK

With all the pervasive fears of online surveillance that were on
display in the TR forums this, it may come as a surprise that at least
one TR member is willing to fudge facts on a resume. Of course, given
the sad state of online grammar-- according to TR users, anyway--it
would be surprising if Web snoops could find anything useful, let alone
track down your admin password. In all likelihood, e-spies probably
don't know anything more than our favorite Star Trek episodes, and if
that counts as incriminating evidence, most of TR is in deep trouble.

Bring forth the TechRepublic Dancing Girls!

Jay what do you mean we don't have any dancing girls? I thought that was what points were for!

Alas...

by Jay Garmon Contributor In reply to Big Brother Watches Orion ...

...we have no Orion women hereabouts, nor could we in good conscience let you redeem TechPoints for their services. This is a family IT site, not some version of Brannon Braga's id.
