  1. Sorry but this is retarded. Jumping on the anti trump hysteria train isnt going to stop this from happening. It also isnt possible to purchase an individuals data the way these idiots say they will do. Throwing money away on something that is impossible to pull off...

    Is it as bad as people make it to? I hear people taking about their browsing history being sold.. and for me that sounds purely like DNS. So it seems like its only people with no clue about computers getting targeted, everyone else would just change their DNS.

  3. Yes. Because those corporations can then give all of that info to law enforcement agencies. Or a law enforcement agency might set up a dummy corporation just in order to buy data. That's a recipe for disaster. It's the exact opposite of living in a free society.

    The law enforcement agencies will not setup dummy corps for that, as it would be invalid as evidence in court. Also as i understand it, its not individuals. :slight_smile:

    With Law enforcement, what you should be woring about that is very real and used daily, is the fake mobile cellphone masts they use all over the states :slight_smile:

  5. Who said anything about a court? In a police state like the US (and make no mistake it is a fascist police state) it's more than enough for law enforcement agencies to have leverage over someone based on their formerly private data to keep them in check.
