Aside from begging your congressman, I'm not sure what we can do to counteract it. Things have been subtly moving this way for a while in the interest of increased online advertising revenue etc. Heck even going in for a haircut today, they ask for your phone # etc. It's hard to keep information private these days.

And I should add the yahoo's and google's are trying to link your every online where about's. Yahoo keeps asking me for my cell phone # in the event I forget my password so they can then contact me. Right, I'll get right on that!

I get the same message from yahoo frequently. I refuse to give my phone number out, even when a business askes for it.

Well at this point we can simply talk about it, make people aware, so they can make an informed decision on their own. Reference all the gun legislation, when people are vested, diligent in truly understanding and being involved even as crooked as politicians are sometimes the common folk can get a win.
