    "Objecting" to me is the equivalent of a sternly worded letter. A good start but I would have been happier seeing some executives put in hand cuffs.

    What difference does it make if Radio Shack has it or someone else has ito_O

    Still I'm glad they are trying to sell it. Will shine a lot of light on data brokers etc., and all the ways companies track your actions, behaviors, and preferences.

    Where did I agree that the data I give Radio Shack belongs to it and they can do whatever the f they want with it?

    Probably one of the most outrageous proposals I have heard of in a long time. Where did I agree that Radio Shack could sell my data?? GAWD. It gets worse daily.
