1. An obvious point to make – unless you stole your comp and are stealing access to the net you paid and are paying for both. There’s a very real element of ownership in that.

    Visit the top fifty sites and as the above photo demonstrates 3,000 files are injected into you comp. Did anyone go through them point by point and ask you if they were acceptable, or were you given the intentionally convoluted “user agreement” to sign if you wanted access that by it’s very nature is morally reprehensible and reeks with what amounts to in my opinion criminal intent?

    If not maybe someone will offer an explanation why that’s acceptable
    on your comp?

    Criminal, how so? The reality violates a number of Constitutional protections, specifically the 4th Amendment:

    “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    Would you allow total strangers to take over your yard and begin planting whatever they wanted? If not how is planting files on you comp any different?

    “Secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects”. So how was this circumvented, did Google etal receive a “warrant” from one of those secret courts? Or did they merely rely on the adage that “money talks and bullshit walks” and purchased a blind eye from elected “officials”and judicial watchdogs?

    Better yet want to explain what “probable cause” exists for this warrantless and unprecedented invasion and violation?

    There used to be something known as “party lines” on telephones, it may have been restricted to rural areas but I can’t say for sure.

    The gist of it was a common line was shared by many – that meant anyone with access to that line could listen in on any conversation.

    As I understand it that didn’t go over well – but it’s okay for the contents of your comp, conversations on Skype, your emails,or anything and everything you do to be one big party line for Google, Yahoo, Safari, or others?

    Again, if not, I wouldn’t mind hearing an explanation.

    Bertrand Russell once said that basically as long as modern man is provided adequate food and sexual stimulation he will accept anything ……apparently the “food” and stimulation the net provides is more than adequate enough to instill an abject complacency of acceptance as long as everyone gets to know whose doing who in Hollywood, who wore what or did what at the Grammys, and what the laughable Kardashians are up to.
