Just another typical abuse of the DMCA. I'm just surprised that the MPAA wasn't banging their pots & pans behind HBO at the time.....

One of the politicians probably saw something on one of the computers that looked like a hanging chad and freaked.....-Tinman57 (July 15, 2013, 08:45 PM)
Oh FFS Seriously?? I can't stop laughing long enough to get mad ... But can we let that go?-Stoic Joker (July 15, 2013, 10:32 PM)
Of course the Russians know how typewriters can be compromised, since they were the ones that made the first keyloggers (for use on IBM Selectrics)...for spying on the US.

Do you have any idea how much chocolate fudge cake one had to eat to get 6 of these mugs for "free"? (they are worth about $15.00 each, today)

Chilled, peel the frosting off, eat the cake first and save the frosting for last.-app103 (July 12, 2013, 07:01 PM)
I saw a similar video a while back - I *think* it was posted here on dc, and I *think* it used the same principles, but not sure.
Anyone else remember?-tomos (July 12, 2013, 02:37 PM)
Well it doesn't affect anyone who are just making "normal" websites, does it? Personally I don't care about what the media industry does for I hardly buy any of their products anyway.

There are ways to get around all this invasive silliness. My guess is that most people here already know, but, just for the sake of it, I'll run down through a few ways to help.
- Get a VPN subscription from a service that doesn't keep logs (see Torrent Freak for reviews)
- Use TOR & the TOR browser
- Get multiple email accounts
- Get Keepass to store all your email accounts & passwords (or a similar program)
You can aggregate some email addresses into 1 with forwarding, but make certain to keep them mostly isolated or grouped by purpose. Do not tie any of them to your main email account and do not put in any real information. Use all fake info. It's easier to use fake info if you choose a historical figure and enter their birth dates, etc. That just makes it easier to keep track of. Also, you can keep that as a note in Keepass.
It can be a PITA, but depending upon what you want, it may be worth it.-Renegade (July 10, 2013, 10:31 PM)

I've experienced what cyberdiva has and am now back to Google. As for TaoPhoenix's advanced search, I'm glad I'm a "computer novice" because "regular search" has worked perfectly for me. I have no need to spend my time going to the advanced search options. Thank goodness for being a novice. Between Google and Facebook (those who use Google and Facebook) there's not such thing as privacy. It's going to be interesting where we end up as a society.-wrbird (July 10, 2013, 09:08 AM)
I would also call for a bit of respect from the other side. The post was written with pejoratives (hopeless churl) in it also, which could have prompted the response, even if two wrongs don't make a right
fair enough -- i stand guilty of skimming Cobble's post and should have called him to task as well for not being respectful and arguably starting the insults.
on this forum we expect everyone to be treated with respect.-mouser (July 09, 2013, 05:46 PM)
