Yes, I believe I was aware of the site (came across it before or
something similar that was very dynamic in creating a cloud - more of
a six degree association concept. It would blow you away.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the site).
I apologize to J.D. I did not wish to insinuate lack of trust. I
found the irony in the post because not even minutes earlier, I had
just finished reading legal news briefs with there were two reports of
"how terrible the world is" with massive hacker penetrations into the
user PC world using subtle tricks - like an innocent carrot that
requires installation (download) but its automated these days with
current browsers - hackers are exploiting this terrible trend.
For example, the current (negative) trend with browsers is to not
even have the option in its setup/options. Have you noticed the
growing # of WEB 2.0 websites who will not function at all and will
tell ya you need it on before continuing? I have a custom copy of
Chrome that disable its "Call Home" logic and I use this whenever I
want to see a web 2.0 site.
MS IE, as well as Mozilla is following freaking Google who has
strategically change the industry mindset in relaxing the browser
security - by not even offering the option to turn it off.
If you use FF, I recommend using the NoScript plugin to protect yourself.
I'm actually writing a bill proposal for my state senator Bill Nelson
who involved in such matters to address the issue.
