    And yet time and time again, we hear "if it's providing a service, that's okay" and other nutty reasons. Too many people underestimate greed. Anyway, this is when you rip OnStar out of your car and tell the company to go jump in a very deep lake.

    Good to know. I wonder exactly what kind of a reaction they were expecting though when they thought this up?

    :D You're probably spot on. I have to say, lately the pro privacy crowd has been winning a few more skirmishes. The war rages on, however.
