I've always hated both MSN and Comcast with a passion. Serves them right. I hope more people will stand up to these corrupt companies.

MSN is the worst I have seen for infringing upon people's privacy rights. I even have reason to believe that they have a personal mission of their own that requires spying on people. Their methods of infringing upon people's privacy rights goes far beyond: "Doing what the feds say" and so called protection of users.

Sometimes, I think that MSN must be on a power trip. Not only do they make it mandatory to give up private information to use their products, but they even try to control the products WITHOUT your control even after you have them. It's like: "If you want to buy and use our products, then you have to do as we wish."

It's as if they completely lost touch with reality. Sort of like one particular Romanian politician who was removed from power back in 1989 by something called a WASR-10.

I avoid MSN products as much as I can. Got no use for them. Same with Comcast.
