First, though it's contrary to the /. groupthink, because Google actually cares quite a lot about user privacy.

Lol, are you joking. YouTube, trying very hard to force users to use their real name, then trying to ram Google-Plus down everyone's throat. These services give out masses of information and you have to turn off the annoyances of things like gmails 'available' for chat. I can't even comment on my own videos because of where I told them to shove google-pus.

Comment Fraud (Score 4, Insightful) 181

To be clear, the ISP has committed a criminal act (fraud), it is obtaining financial gain by deception - the concealment of the fact that no person willingly used an affiliate link.

I think that if they weren't prosecuted then they committed a crime and got away with it. The victims being the retailers and any legitimate affiliates who lost out (if that is the case).

'They became violent.'

According to the story 1 person became violent and attacked property, and with 'they became violent' you unfairly called them all violent, a word which is most often used to describe actions which physically harm people.

Gov't agents have a history of infiltrating organisations and promoting or committing violence in their name in order to discredit them, you should remember that before blaming the action of 1 person on the whole group that they claim to represent. /they're still all idiots though, the supply and demand of housing is down to the gov't and property developers, not a few of Google's minions.

All I want is a program that combines Autoruns with StartupMonitor. and steps in when any Dll or executable is about to be modified, hell, the OS should do that anyway.

Over 5 years I have enjoyed running my PC virus free. and without the annoyance of anti-virus software's constant nagging. VirusTotal for when I'm in doubt and a scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for when I get a tinge of paranoia.
