that site doesn't update immediately.

let's look closer to home:

who be the leader of the pack???

I'm tracking you

hey guess what: mannchoo is under my porch again. what amazes me is he doesn't have a clue. appears more than one idea at a time creates sensory overload in the poor creature. it confuses his conclusions. my GF thinks he's cute and laughs at his behavior. oh well, to each his own.

OT: does your outbox link to SE like mine does?

Is it safe?
by JP Bill / February 9, 2008 9:10 PM PST

As safe as any post you/we make?

The fact someone/some company is keeping track should be no surprise.

They track me.....I remove tracking cookies

I'm not surprised we're being tracked

it's the amount of detail that seams odd. User names, posts submitted, summations, etcetera.

I agree.

Numbers of posts and perhaps hours of the day (peak periods) would be most important info.

Might have copyright problems as well

You can tally the data but you can't show the posts without alerting them considerable. Basically only use the forums as reference materially, not copy them word for word. Might be a Cnet affiliate or partner, however.

"I have been tracking you for years"

Watch that the hunted doesn't become the hunter. My guess is I might have to make this clearer for you.

I'm going to drop this for now.

I'm not really sure why that went bad so quickly but I do take the fact that someone might have been stalking me for years and has shown up here, VERY SERIOUSLY.

"I have been tracking you for years. suggestion: look over right shoulder now and then."

From post 9

For all concerned I'd like to see most of this thread deleted.

by jonah jones / February 10, 2008 5:55 PM PST

the owner of post #9 has been a cnet member since Feb 2006

you have been a member since Feb 2007, so who exactly "turned up here".....

but not to worry, inhale the good, exhale the bad.....
