You can't do business online, period, without some degree of privacy. Anyone who has access to your bank information and enough PII can spend your money. It is really that simple. Therefore, you cannot do business with someone that is not taking precautions with your information.
Someone that decides making your information available to the public is worth it because it makes it easier to advertise more effectively worthless service is definitely someone that is not seeing a dime of my money.
To put it another way, every time another business is willing to go the extra mile to protect their customers, guess which direction the money is going to go.
Hint: away from the spam.

I do not have privacy represents a risk, I do so I agree because I have no danger of my personal data stolen

I think Thomas is quite right in his statement on the privacy of individuals in the era of the internet. Quires more privacy if you lose a lot of useful information

I recently was working with transparent paper, and I was trying to attach it to a type of paper similar to construction paper. I used Yes Paste, but the transparent paper did not stick. Does anyone know what kind of adhesive would work best to attach transparent paper to other paper? Also, if not adhesive, does anyone know any other effective method I could use to attach the transparent paper? Thanks!

Social Apocalypse

I recently received an email (as I often do) from the mortgage broker who sold me two toxic predatory mortgages. He was spamming me for new business by sharing the great news about "Refinance now! Rates are low!" He said he was contacting all of his former clients to tell them the news... Problem is, he "CC'd" EVERY email address in his list clearly and conspicuously in the email. I am now in possession of a LARGE number of email addresses of his former customers, and they, presumably are in possession of mine. I GREATLY do not appreciate this, and I am sure they wouldn't either, and I may contact each of them to point out that their privacy was violated as a fellow victim. Clearly a violation of their privacy policy. I'll just add it to my long list with these people-Paramount Equity Mortgage.


Where does the idea come from that targeted advertising is a benefit to consumers? I've yet to see a solid defense. I love the 'misguided' argument as well: You don't like the fact that we're invading your privacy? That's only because you're too ignorant to know better.
