Yes it is scary, but I rarely stop to think about that, even though I should.

In the article Marshal says: “93 percent of respondents believe internet companies should ask for permission before using personal information.” I wonder who are the other 7 percent that doesn’t believe.

I remember about 8 years ago a website where you would sign up to stop receiving telemarketing, and if anyone called you after you had signed up they could be sued.

That really worked. I never received another call after that. Why can they do the same thing now?

Sparapani from facebook says: “Our users are really quite savvy as a group”.  (LOL) Really?
