You've never been spammed then? Or visited a special-interest site that
has targeted advertising all over it?

While I generally agree that those who have nothing to hide have nothing
to fear from the likes of anti-terrorism government monitoring, in this
case I think it has the potential to give spammers and hackers more ways
to annoy and intrude on law-abiding internet users.

Welcome to a nightmare.

Study some recent history, Hilter. The Jews, needed removing to make the
world better, in the same way that anti-terror folk want us to believe.

Question, Why do these people want to go to the effort to attack, and kill?

Bye.

It doesn't bother me. Over the 15 or so years I've been connected spam has
reduced. It has got to the point where I almost subconsciously recognise it and
bin it without noticing what it is.

It isn't so bad having targeted advertising on it, i'st the random adverts like
Viagra on sites about say abstinence that are very stupid.

I guess we will both have to agree to differ in the topic until something major
makes us change our minds.

might? Seems only you thus far, just using big words, loses an
audience who can speak plain english, people dont need to brighten up,
you need to dumb down, on second thoughts I doubty you need to dumn
down, anyone can read a dictionary.
