I'm glad you brought this up because I've been laughing at exactly the same thing. I don't give two craps about privacy, but if you're going to use my information for your purposes at least do a good job of it. I laugh hysterically every time I see all the ads for something I just purchased showing up over and over on every Web page for days after I already made the purchase. It's not a very smart system of snooping. Show me something meaningful if you're going to go to all this trouble to try to figure out who I am and what I'm into. So far you're just not doing a very good job. And the people who pay the ad rates to these geniuses should be aware of this.

LOL! Don't bust on Dr. Who (cares) on \. or you'll get modded into the hospital boiler room. My post was neither overrated nor troll-ish. I was just pointing out that the story is a non-story about someone who is obviously out of touch with what social media is to a lot of people that aren't him.

Thank you Captain Obvious. Of course people use it as a type of alter ego. It's a way for me to write opinion and commentary. Does the columnist say the things he writes out loud in polite conversation? He clearly doesn't understand the point of it all.

It's just poor form and doesn't instill confidence that any decent people are in charge of anything any more. It should be obvious that the right move would to not only give the guy his bounty, but to make sure they publicized that even though he's only 17 they are grateful that he came forward with the bug and are happy to show their appreciation. Why is this just not obvious anymore?

We think you're foolish because you believe that if we don't believe what you do then we'll go to a very bad place (get a lump of coal). What you leave out of your argument is all the foolishness other than just your own personal spirituality that is a very unfortunate part of your whole agenda. It's selfish of you to think that just because you believe in pink unicorns that they are perfectly harmless. Those pink unicorns have very nasty ideas (rules and consequences) about how the rest of us should behave and treat each other. There is nothing divine about the Bible and it's bigotry and misogynistic slant. You are a fool if you believe in superstition and the supernatural. Simply. Just because you refuse to accept it doesn't make it any less true.
