With governments like ours...who needs criminals to do us injury?

Obama has announced that he will keep the tax cuts for the SUPER rich...And add to it tax cuts for the common man and Spend a trillion bucks to make sure the rich get all that's coming to us...On top of the 850 Billion bail out of the rich in progress...

How many here knew they were electing another Republic Pres? That's because you didn't! Dem and Repub. mean nothing...watch where the money goes no matter whose elected. It goes from you and goes to them....what more do we need to know?

This isn't news. It falls under both the Computer Misuse Act and RIPA, and has been the case for a number of years.

On the other hand, if it makes people realise they need to protect their computers from external sources, so much the better. As far as I can see, if someone falls foul of this, then their machine is probably already riddled with spyware anyhow.

I wonder how the percentages would run on this...?
