    Re: Not sure where to post this.... News

    The Internet ID is the Mark of the Beast.

    Discuss.
    The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
    In the ranks of death ye will find him;
    His father's sword he hath girded on,
    And his wild harp slung behind him;
    "Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
    "Tho' all the world betray thee,
    One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
    One faithful harp shall praise thee!

      That's as reasonable a theory as credit cards, Social Security numbers, infrared tattoos, RFID chip implants, income tax refund checks, driver's licenses, and passports...OH, an cell phone identifiers, computer ISPs, and security threads in $100 bills.

            What really is there to discuss?
            Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.

              Harbinger of Math? Minkowski Space? A guy, definitely a guy. I've only met about 2 women interested in high end mathematics, and I dated both of them.

              So unless you're my ex, got to be a guy.

              And if you are my ex, well, I'm really really sorry about, well you know.

                Facebook Connect is probably a bigger threat to online privacy than this is. The convenience of logging in with one account is not worth trading every little bit of demographic data they have about you. Every silly little application demands an obscene level of access to your personal information, and we are not far shy of them offering unlimited access to their advertisers—they pay the bills, after all.
                They are also shockingly bad, in most cases, of actually verifying the information. If a site wants my date of birth and I see no reason for them to have it, I give a false date. I only give an address if it offers me a tangible benefit. It's not hard to do.

                Your online habits are tracked by cookies which provide networks with shockingly rich, detailed information on your personal browsing habits. Governments have tried, and so far as we know failed, to subpoena unimaginable volumes of data on the flimsiest of pretexts.
                Cookies are easy to delete, all you have to do is configure your browser to only allow session cookies. Or use one of a few cookie managers that lets them stick around long enough for the site to register that you "accept cookies" and then deletes them.

                If you are worried about your privacy, close your Facebook account, get a decent ad-blocker, be careful about sharing too much and start fragmenting your online identity. And most importantly, never give out real demographic information if you can help it.
                All good tips.

                You're a boy. No, wait, a girl. Maybe a bit of both? No idea, but then I'm not the kind of person you're probably hiding from
                24 August 2013 - I've decided to take a break from a number of internet forums, including this one, for my own reasons.
                I expect to be back at some time in the future, although at present don't know when that will be.
                I've been here just a few days shy of six years, and those six years have been greatly blessed.

                    Yes, and I prefer going door-to-door saying 'trick or treat' with my mask on.

                        I think the biggest threat would be identify theft and fraud. If you had only one universal ID, you would be really hooped if someone hacked it.
