ummm gene...

forgive me.. but what the heck are you talking about! i use linkedin
extensively.. never had a problem with it capturing my web site/travel
information.. of course i ignore the ability to peruse my outlook/email
addresses as i don't want to spam other people...

it's perfectly ok for sites to ask you if they can use the information they
collect on you for other purposes, as long as they spell the purposes out.
it's also perfectly ok for you to not use their services..

and i'm also willing to bet that you're wrong regarding any facebook client
calling home, reporting all your internet travels..

so, enlighten us, what's your real issue??? and yeah, i'm a 47 year old dude
who's been dealing with tech when alot of these guys weren't finished
crawling to their moms!!

One old farts opinion:

Why should we enable these creeps who exist solely for the purpose of
data on its users for sale to the highest bidder, or in some cases as a
cruising site by pedophiles looking to score some underage action?  Doubt
Google for facebook and calling home, facebook's user client ignores your
wishes to keep quiet, and calls home to facebook, reporting all your web

As one lady observed, scroom & the camel that rode in on them.

Ditto for reunion.com, a bro-in-laws winderz box was infected just this past
week.  It bombed everyone in his address database.

All that stuff from linkedin etc that come in here gets fed to
sa-learn -spam.

For everyone who thinks those are neat sites, just remember TANSTAAFL.

Cheers, Gene
