I wonder if Big Brother is watching my computer for expressing opinions on Cruisemates site?
I have a feeling my computer is being shadowed and I don't think it's a hacker: computer junkies who should be drawn and quartered.
Oh, oh there goes my compute.........
Note: I moved this thread because of my last post where I note that Google has really close ties to the current administration. So the concept of "Big Brother" watching you goes beyond Google, it goes to the Federal Government as well.

Big Brother is watching. The Big Brother I'm referring to are the search engines. They are the friend of the web and websites but also somewhat of the enemy.
Whatever you post, on the open forums, can be accessed by search engines. Law enforcement, lawyers, credit companies and insurance companies use Social Media to gain information on people. Facebook is a very good example of this. Many a cheater has been busted by their wife's lawyer because of Facebook postings or message board flirting.
You need to remember that you are on a forum that is accessible to the public and what you say can be found. It's been that way since the start of the Internet and it's on almost all sites not just Cruisemates.
Laker's Fan: In regard to the "CM Hierarchy" being able to read your Private Messages: That is completely untrue. If a "moderator" was able to recite verbatim one of your PM's then someone sent it to them.
The ONLY way we can read a PM is to change your password, log in and read your stuff. We can't change it back to the old password because we have NO IDEA OR ABILITY to find out what the old password was. You would know someone was in their because suddenly your password was invalid. The system stores the password in encrypted format that no one, even the board developers, can decrypt.
Your ideas are completely off base.

I learned the hard way on how much is on the net. When Joe died I saw not only his stuff, but a direct link to us. One site said, The Russo's live ***** the address, would you like to pay to see their police record? Scary stuff.
