Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Our Internet privacy? Ha ha!
Have you guys seen Snowden and the eye opening lack of any privacy we already don't have?
No matter which country you are posting from?

Granted the CIA won't be hawking our browsing history to purveyors of Fit Bits and diaper rash creams, but really now?

I'm happy to report the only "tracker" TTA uses here is Google Analytics (according to "BLUR" )

They are really going to be bored looking at my search history and what websites I frequent. But I agree... just another step for big brother.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

I'm not thrilled with this.

I'm not too worried about it though.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Is this too good to be true?
"Tit for Tat" never sounded so good.

http://thehill.com/policy/technology/326...-histories

Internet users are fighting back after Congress voted to block Obama-era internet privacy protections.

Two fundraising campaigns have so far raised more than $215,000 to purchase and reveal lawmakers' browsing histories.

Actor Misha Collins, the star of television show “Supernatural,” has raised more than $63,000 on his GoFundMe page. More than 3,000 people have donated to the page, which has a goal of $500 million.

Thanks, Congress, for voting to put all of our private data up for sale! We can’t wait to buy yours.
— Misha Collins (@mishacollins) March 28, 2017

“Great news! The House just voted to pass SJR34. We will finally be able to buy the browser history of all the Congresspeople who voted to sell our data and privacy without our consent!” he wrote on the fundraising page.

Another activist from Tennessee has raised more than $152,000 from more than 9,800 people.

A bill on its way to President Trump’s desk would allow internet service providers (ISPs) to sell users’ data and Web browsing history. It has not taken effect, which means there is no growing history data yet to purchase.

A Washington Post reporter also wrote it would be possible to buy the data “in theory, but probably not in reality.”Huh

fuc'ersAngry
A former enforcement bureau chief at the Federal Communications Commission told the newspaper that most internet service providers would cover up this information, under their privacy policies. If they did sell any individual's personal data in violation of those policies, a state attorney general could take the ISPs to court.

Seems like there should be some way educated consumers could use the knowledge that this information is being collected to their advantage Consider Meanwhile Tor is a prerequisite for doing something stupid on the internet.
