The question is never "Will they?". The question is always, "Can they?" And more to the point.. "Can they and still get away with it profitably?" So when you are puzzling over some abhorrent possibility, run it through that filter and you will invariably find your answer.
I quit working for "The Man" 5 years ago and now work for myself. I find that I work twice the hours, at least, but I also take regular learning tangents and am free to follow them wherever I wish, and often times they add to my general knowledge and allow me to offer different, new services and such. I find that I do a lot of "me" learning in-between projects and it not only helps me grow but also allows me to clear my head for the next project.
I think it was Stalin who erased people from existence. paintings, books, tax roles, every mention in every place. Very thorough, and very very paranoid.
So apart from the blatant Constitutional shredding, which in and of itself should be plenty to call BS on the whole thing, how about the simple ROI of the whole damn thing? How much money, resources and man-hours have we shit away for practically no public good or protection? I would guess in the billions and growing. This whole ordeal is nothing but a power grab for control. It has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with pure unadulterated power.
Aaaand there goes your search ranking
While I do appreciate the ongoing releases of how we are tracked, mostly for the less technical crowd to come up to speed, I think it's time to realize that if you are connected to any network with any device, regardless of what "security" measures you take, you will be tracked.
The next level of "Spyware" has arrived. Enjoy.
While the student debt machine pumps out a great amount of money, the icing is in Grants, and Universities who can and do research work with associated patents get crazy grant money for important things..you know..like golden bulls and stuff..
Sure send your notification emails and cya.. once that's done it's more a game of wait for the overtime, because when, and I mean when, it goes down it will be like Oprah came by with.. And overtime for you, and for you, and for you.. overtime for everyone until we fix this!!
Ive been doing the 4 tiered password thing for over 10 years now. There is NOTHING like hitting an old website you havent been to in years and logging in first try.
Jurors and judges don't get to invalidate patent claims because of some flaky idea of who is trolling who.
Actually jurors can and more should..

I am a little on the strange side. I dont expect anyone to like or appreciate this, but I try and stay below poverty for income if I can for a few reasons. The overall business plan is to build sites and such for low down and small monthlys, get enough of that and hosting to make a residual income and then just pick up checks and do whatever jobs roll along. Almost at the $1k residual mark, and with new and fixit jobs wandering in as well as my wife has an online shop it is slowly growing and working. Not that there isnt squeeky tight times, but for 5 years now we have kept the lights on and food on the plate and it is getting easier.
Having owned and run my own little web biz for 5 years now, I have run estimates on my real hourly income.. and its a little depressing. It usually does end up below minimum wage, but then a big job (feast cycle) hits and we start over. On the other hand..I have managed to pay bills for 5 years now in my PJ's..so I go tthat goin for me...
Just when I think.. wow.. you couldnt screw this up any worse... they step up and prove me wrong.
I am wondering why my correct and hopefully imformative post gets modded down... Sometimes I just dont get this place..
