Funny how that just info leeches over.


I've been trying to draw you guys a picture for years. It doesn't just 'leech over', there are companies whose income is 100% derived from logging and recording your personal information, then sharing it! Google and Android are some of the biggest collectors of your data.

I went to the CBC radio player page, and uOrigin showed me 394 websites trying to track my personal information! That's how Facebook got so large, not because anyone cares what you had for lunch, but because it sells you in more ways that we can enumerate. You are the product!

And the FCC in the US when it rescinds net neutrality, will make it far, far worse.

Not only that, anyone can get that information for a few hundred bucks. Want to know everything about someone? Pretty easy to do.

Had a customer with a mail order bride from South America. He'd often go on holidays, always without her. Always to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Burma.
He was a regular, in at least every 2 weeks to get viruses removed. Worked night guard at a mill. Went there at least every 2 weeks to clean their infected computer in the office he sat in. Until they fired him, then they never got infected again.
How stupid was he? He called once long distance from Manila. Took his DSL modem with him and plugged it into his hotel phone line, why didn't our % useless Internet work? His wife called in same day why didn't our useless Internet work at her house (with no modem...)
One employee got so pissed he told the guy WTF is wrong with you, just go to youporn or redtube like everyone else. A week later the guy's back again. Same employee calls me in the backroom and points out kiddie porn on the guy's system.
Looked at the guy and told him - you're registered to be an RCMP trainee, you do the ride alongs. You got my 100% permission to call so and so at the station and earn brownie points or I will call myself.
The guy got his computer back with nothing said and a 2nd hand hard drive and fresh Windows. The other was at the cop shop.
About a month later a junior employee who rented the townhouse next to the perv came to work all freaked out. He and his friend went to the backyard to smoke a joint and found the perv with a belt around his neck hanging from the clothesline. He'd also shot himself in the head....
to this day others who knew him but didn't know his secrets say he did it because he discovered incurable cancer. Real sad his insurance was voided and his wife went back to South America penniless.
Just one of the stories I could tell about how prevalent that shit is.


If this was around the summer of last year then this guy might have been caught in the Peter Scully investigation. A whole big boatload of sick bastards went down on that one and law enforcement did an outstanding job of it! [B-o]
