Y'know, we always knew that phone companies could listen in to what we were saying, during calls, but it wasn't a bother, let alone menacing, because they had no real interest (nosiness and giggles at the coffee machine aside) in doing so.

Today is so different.

A vast number of companies exist solely and only to snoop on everything we do and say on the net.

Even I was flabbergasted, after the EU privacy laws came into power, on the sheer number of companies involved (the average site has between 120 and 400 "partner companies") (yes, 400!), who reap data from every click we make.

Oh, and the workaround that they have for being legally blocked from collecting data is that they change domain names, every five minutes, so once you've gone to all the trouble of blocking them, it makes precious little difference, because they're back, a few days later, under a different name.

Are they malicious?

Probably not, mostly.

Avaricious, certainly.

But it's just such a f***ing intrusion!

It's like having hundreds of people standing outside your window, watching every move you make, and you can't close the curtains or tell them (politely or impolitely) to go away.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
