This Modern World - First they say they don't collect that data....

I wrote before:

First, they say they don't collect the data. Then they say they don't use it, except for engineering purposes. Then, they say that there are safeguards. Then, they say they don't supply it outside the company. Then, they sell it.

Then, they just make it up. It takes less than 10 years across the full life-cycle from total privacy to total piracy, and telcos have had a decade or two, already. Governments aren't any help.

Click to see today's interpretation!

Why shouldn't we all install an application on our PC that creates messages of random data, of random sizes, and sends them to random IP addresses around the internet at irregular intervals, every few minutes or seconds?

This would hose up their stupid database pretty quick, and provide lots of cover for people who are communicating in encrypted messages, seriously, can't we find a developer for this? The ideal enhancement for Webfunds/IM. F**K those guys. The mass population is always stronger than these power trippers in Wash DC.
