Online Anonymity
So I found this website and, call me paranoid, but I've decided I'm going to block out as much Google pervasiveness as possible. I always knew ad sites kind of tracked you but I never figured it was as bad as it is so I figured I'd share this site with you:

Don't Track Us

So if you're as concerned with your privacy as I am I figure you'll be equally interested. Take care out there my internet surfing comrades!

It's the internet. Who DOESNT track you?

RE: Online Anonymity
I did a rant on facebook about the church and pedophilia a while back... and recently I googled my name just to see if I still held my high school track sprint medley record (vanity? you betcha) and like the 8th google search result was just labeled "Pedophilia" and my name was highlighted in bold in the description... it was just a link to my rant, but c'mon google, you're gonna land me a spot on To Catch A Predator.

And now that I've posted this, there are probably now 2 such search results.

And Firefox + AdBlock is the way to go. I haven't seen an ad on youtube for years.

I love adblock plus. The internet is a better place while it's working.

Does anyone know how to go about connecting to Tor? The only place I've heard much about it was Encyclopedia Dramatica, and I don't entirely trust them. ;>.>

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

Interestingly, the spouse and I were discussing this just yesterday. Thanks Green!

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

RE: Online Anonymity
For searches I tend to use inPrivate browsing, but for my common sites I use regular (because it memorizes my passwords and I never need to sign in). Now I see this is a good habit lol.

Tor is good - it offers anonimity by passing you through multiple proxy servers so you original IP is impossible to track.
It's easy just download the application and the plug-in.
Just 2 problems :
1)It's VERY slow as your signal bounces through tens of machines
2)It only works with Mozilla (last I checked)

And people ask me why I don't use Facebook - ha. The main problem with Google is that their CEO is an utter ass. Look up interviews of him on YouTube.He's stance is basically "if you don't have anything to hide , you don't need privacy".

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!
