Is anyone else bothered these days that their every click and web page visit is logged?
And not it's not (only) for GCHQ (although tecnically that's not law yet) but it is so your clicks can be turned into money for the big ISP's, to subsidise the cost of providing their platforms (i.e. being an ISP is about generating money from your info. rather than [soley] providing the connection and telco services).
After 8 years I'm leaving virgin to get off the Behaviour Science/Phorm/Webwise databases. I am also considering going for VPN as belt and braces.
It is not paranoia its called wanting my prviacy as a citizen of a free democracy. We are NOT China (in name anyway).
And for all those of the "nothing to hide nothing to fear" brigade you are welcome to post the IP addresses of your webcams. If you have nothing to hide I'll be setting up a streaming website for all those brave souls that dont want privacy. Can you also include your browsing histories, and any personal data in emails also. Google mail does like to know whats going on in your life afterall.
Most people realise that infact and on balance, we have our private lifes to hide.
I'll be paying more for less speed (yeah right - it doesn't feel like 10 or 20 mb when you're wating ages due to contention ut thats another issue, used to be lightning fast), but it's what an ISP costs if they are NOT nicking your [email and browsing] data to sell on.
