    Thumbs up Bill imposes prison time over 'spyware'

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/interne....ap/index.html

    Offenders under his bill would be sentenced for up to five years for secretly installing spyware to break into someone's computer and commiting another federal crime

    Nothing will change really. Kids will still agree to anything to get to a web site. It's a beginning though.

    Cheers!

    Fixed it for you.

    This bill won't change anything. Most of the companies that are associated with spyware and spamming probably aren't even located in the US.

    Don't be correcting my posts. I pick my words specifically. I installed Internet for Shaw in B.C. and Monarch in Alberta. Most of what I did was conversions. 90% of the computers that were spyware and virus infested were mainly operated by the kids in the house. The parents confessed that if a pop-up appeared wanting a yes or a no they usually shut the page down out of fear.

    What I found was kids could use a computer like a hot damn but not know the consequences of their actions.

    Cheers!

    Oh. Sorry, Beemer. In my experience, it's always just stupid people in general clicking yes to everything. That includes both kids and adults.
    I've actually blocked my computers from accessing the computers that belong to my room mates because they're both idiots.
