Regulators don't give a fuck. No one does. I've been getting robodialers to my cell phone endlessly. They all come out of blocks of phone numbers provided by one datacenter (they own blocks around the country). They won't do anything. The regulatory bodies in states the numbers call from won't do anything. FCC won't do anything. FTC won't do anything. I've contacted my state AG. I've contacted my senators and congressmen.

No one gives a flying shit about this kind of thing. It is infuriating.

There's just one problem:responses. If I send data to B and B never sends data back, then that's clearly junk data. If I send data to B and B immediately sends data back then that's clearly junk data unless B is a hidden service. Apply this to every node B talks to (and the nodes they talk to) and it's readily apparent which ones are actually having a conversation.

We'll just have to see. The Republicans are in charge of congress now, so we'll see if they're actually going to shrink the size of government or spend the next two years repeatedly trying to repeal obamacare another 40 times.

I doubt they're going to try and end the war on [insert everything here] or roll back IRS harassment powers or end civil forfeiture or rein in the NSA or anything else that I'd really like the government to stop doing.

While cumbersome, you'd login to your account, magically find the tab and you could generate a 1 time credit card number. You could set a one time balance, set a monthly balance for recurring charges, etc.

Fantastic for any online purchases you make. But, in reality - how many times are CC #'s getting stolen online vs in real life?

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
