Looks like this guy is a classic victim of COINTELPRO. Anyone who calls this guy paranoid schizophrenic or the like is probably in on the action.

Also this should be a lesson not to just piss off banks and financial institutions of America but anyone powerful in government for they can and will ruin you.

I use the Mp3 player for voice recordings/notes when I am out and about. I use the calendar on the wall for appointments, grocery lists, rent amounts, and such. I use facebook notes for info that I don't care about with regards to privacy. I try to follow the engineering principle of KISS or keep it simple stupid when dealing with the volume of information.

You may not be able to purge the data from their systems but you can alter it in such a way to make it unrecognizable. Start by going to Account in the upper right hand corner then go to account settings. Change all that data in there and use an email you create just for this purpose and link to it. Problem solved.

I can imagine a virus or worm that hijacks someone's machine to harvest accounts to post libel. Who is responsible then? What happens when the judge's computer gets hijacked? Same with any speech we find the need to control, who does the law find responsible? Can you imagine a Beowulf cluster of these?

I have activated 4 MagicJacks without issue. I suspect the problem here may be a PEBCAK error here but I am not sure unless I have more info on what you did to include the spec of your machine and connection. I am not sure how your post was rated +5 "informative" because it is anything but. I don't doubt that you had an issue with two of them but from the looks of it you didn't even try to download the update which I suspect would of fixed your issue. Just a guess without knowing more. FYI I do not in any way work for MagicJack.
