we have to cheer up or start worrying a little bit more about our
privacy. In fact, as of today, very few people are really aware about
what exactly does a "cookie" you receive, when you visit a Web site.
Having already experienced the wonders of "spam" (unsollicited garbage
commercial e-mail ) through my Compuserve account, I am very much
afraid about all the software manufacturers tell us and also what they
fail to tell us. The fact is, we are giving away gradually - without
even noticing it - bits of our privacy for - God knows only what kind
of - development of e-commerce on the Net.
I have already some nostalgia about the old days when I was acccessing
the Internet through terminal commands. At that time it was more
cumbersome, but I am sure, more respectful about the individual.
Many thanks again for the info.
