just a tip for users of this site, it installs spyware called 'avenue a inc' and unless one has 'spy bot' installed users will have it on board, while on the site for ten minutes there were 11 attempts to install this spyware on my pc. be warned.

cheers,

Mad, they get enough out of me. £10 for registration. Why do they need Av. A?

At least spybot gets rid of it, thanks for letting me know.

All the ridiculously named 'spyware' does is to anonymously track your visits to sites, it really is not a problem. Look on it as market research.

Fingers off the panic buttons, bit similar to credit and debit cards and no one seems to wory about the HUGE amount of information that they supply to the world and his wife. (esp. store loyalty cards and HM Tax Inspectors) ;-))

Spybot etc are a small victory for privacy in a very nosey world.

The Internet is an open resource so privacy is going to be zilch, as the spooks at GCHQ will testify.

"All the ridiculously named 'spyware' does is to anonymously track your visits to sites, it really is not a problem. Look on it as market research" and then you receive a load of unwanted bumph through the post.

Similarly when the spyware identifies your preferences you get a load of unwanted e-mails (so we know where the viagra complainers have been lol).
