That's nothing. Just wait until you get Win10 installed.

"What's up with that" is that we have no constitutional commandment (amendment) about privacy. Privacy laws are a hodge-podge mess scattered over all 50 states and broken up to be scattered into the strangest places. Meaning, there is no real danger of a class action suite. That is done by design. Startup Businesses especially and newer applications and new platforms have developers and programmers who like taking things out for a spin. It's a marketing tool and we are the product that is being sold. But I suspect that you already know this.

I'm not completely sure what flash cookies are doing there. I suspect it has to do with advertising, although there are no ads currently on the site, the scripts will still run. I wouldn't worry about it.

Its all about surveillance, not just this web site but websites around the world. Something that's been in place here in the states since 9/11 is coming to Australia in October..

The digital privacy of Australians ends from Tuesday, October 13..On that day this country's entire communications industry will be turned into a surveillance and monitoring arm of at least 21 agencies of executive government.

The electronically logged data of mobile, landline voice (including missed and failed) calls and text messages, all emails, download volumes and location information will be mandatorily retained by Australian telcos and ISPs.

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies will have immediate, warrantless and accumulating access to all telephone and internet metadata required by law, with a $2 million penalty for telcos and ISPs that don't comply.

In this war that we're in what does the devil hate above all things, what better way to weed out genuine born again believers than a world wide surveillance system..
