It's not entrapment if they just ask you to do it and you do it without any resistance. If they went to the guy and then begged and pleaded with him telling him some sad story about why they need it and convinced him to do it after he said no, then that would be entrapment.

Really good guide to what entrapment is

Ugh I should not try posting on mobile, the above was supposed to say. I disagree it's usually organizations who don't care who never find out they've been hacked. If they do what you are proposing most companies will attempt to just sweep it under the rug. That's when it really becomes bad for the customer.

Comment What do they consider a take down request? (Score 2) 155

What do they consider a take down request though? For the website I administer for my job I just submitted 60 take down requests using the Google webmaster tools this morning as our Chat Form Page got incorrectly indexed (robots.txt error on our part) and we want our customers to go through the contact reason page first.

These are legal requests but are they counting these in that number?

Better yet, just logged into my ebay acct. and there's NOTHING in the communications there either.

Slashdot, now with less actual news and information, but nearly 100% sensational!

I understand reading is hard so I highlighted the important parts for you.

eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) said beginning later today it will be asking eBay users to change their passwords because of a cyberattack that compromised a database containing encrypted passwords and other non-financial data.

Because, when it comes to car commercials, ad agencies are bound by so many rules and regulations regarding depictions of reckless driving and such things that it becomes almost impossible tp create a cool car commercial without running the risk of going to court over it (both the ad agency AND car manufacturer).

What the hell are you talking about.... I just watched a car commercial where a woman jumped on top of a moving train with a car.

What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
