Re: Cannabis and the Gov't.

Re: Pestered by Facebook!

seahermit, This is the latest link I have found that deals with the myriad ways in which FB can pester you.

Re: European Data Protection Regulation

I remember hearing about careless incidents where government ministers lost a DVD of vital data on a train or bus and the consequences may have been enormous if information fell into the wrong hands.
