Re: The basic idea may be sound

It's actually a pretty good idea.

No, it's not. It's YAN portal into the Surveillance State (or perhaps more accurately, at least at present, is the Surveillance Co. Inc.) Any thingie that monitors you, and reports what it's monitoring to another entity for unstated or unclear purposes, is Not A Good Thing, Period.

Yeah, call me paranoid, or a Conspiracy Theorist, or whatever you will. I'm old enough to remember Anonymity -- and relished it then, and relish it even more now that it is under a full frontal attack.
