WHY , AND HOW, CAN PRIVATE CITIZENS BE FORCED TO PURCHASE A PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT INCLUDES ACCESSSES TO THEIR PROPERTY AGAINST THEIR WILL AND WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE? WHY DO SOFTWARE PROVIDERS BELIEVE THEY ARE ENTITLED TO CONTRAVENE THE 4TH AMENDMENT? WHERE IS THE CPU OWNER'S RIGHT TO PRIVACY? DO YOU FIND REFRIGERATOR TECHNICIANS IN YOUR KITCHENS, UNINVITED AND UNNANNOUNCED, ROOTING AROUND AMONGST YOUR EGGS AND JUICES AT 3:00AM ON THE PRESUPPOSITION THAT YOU HAVE BOOTLEG BEER IN THERE? I'LL JUST HAVE ANOTHER SMALL CLAIMS CLASS ACTION SUIT TO PURSUE HERE I GUESS. THAT'S 4 SO FAR THIS MONTH. AT THIS RATE I'LL FIND ENOUGH OF THESE "KING GEORGE"LIKE 'STAMP ACT' ABROGATIONS OF ENGLISH COMMON LAW TO RIVAL MY OLD FRIEND WHO HAS MADE A LIVING SUING BUSINESSES THAT DON"T PROVIDE HIM, A DISABLED AMERICAN CITIZEN, WITH LEGAL ACCESS TO THEIR PUBLIC FACILITIES. SO BE IT>

The dirty little secret that "software developers" and I.P. engineers don't want bandied about is that they depend on the amount of unused bandwidth from people not totally utilizing their upload/download capabilities for free media access. Some 'developers' use other people's capabilities to run businesses, place long distance phone calls, transfer files and send messages ALL WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OR PERMISSION OF THE OWNERS OF THE COMPUTERS SO UTILIZED AND ACCESSED. Even big media firms design their software so as to allow them to move data freely, ON OTHER PEOPLE'S NETWORKS AND COMPUTERS, and they hate "bandwidth hogs" - that is, anyone BESIDES THEM that uses most or all of the bandwidth they pay for. Open your 'Task Manager' and watch all the 'threads' and 'handles' that flow through your CPU and try and convince yourself that it is all pertinent to YOUR computing -I assure you it isn't! Check it out. Then call your Senator or Congressman and see if your privacy concerns outweigh all the donations politicians get from software firms.
