Congress Votes to Allow IP's to Collect Data Without Your Permission

http://money.cnn.com/2017/03/29/tech...d=hp-stack-dom

This feels pretty gross. I want to be able to opt out of having my browsing history collected and sold.

Perhaps it has been offically legalized, but I suspect it has been actually going on for quite a while.

I believe that if the 'common carrier' classification of ISPs is removed, then the FTC will be able to scrutinize how they handle private data.

If I were an ISP, I'd use this to advertise privacy, unlike other providers.

This is pretty terrible. I expect all net security to be compromised within the decade. It wouldn't surprise me if SOPA/PIPA got passed today.

What's the problem here? As long as you're not doing any illegal activity, you should have nothing to fear. I'm sure nobody in Congress cares what your favorite porn site is.

You are, at times, unbearably naive. C'mon, you're an 80's kid. You're supposed to understand privacy issues.

I have nothing to hide on my computer, in fact, nobody should. Do I care that Congress knows what websites I visit? Does that make a difference?

If you assume they're going to steal personal data like credit cards or stuff like that, you'll know about it and it can't be done. Nobody is going to steal your identity and get away with it. As I said, unless you're engaged in some sort of bizarre illegal activity, in which you SHOULD be caught, most people should have nothing to hide.

This is awful news for pretty much everybody, but I wonder how many 4/8channers who voted Trump (and helped this happen in the process) are sweating buckets right now.

I don't think you people know what illegal activity is. The people who visit porn sites aren't going to jail.

Many, from what I saw.

This was happening no matter who won. Don't be naive.

That aside, that is pretty sucky. Imagine employers checking their employees' net history and finding an excuse to fire them. Recent season of South Park played around with this subject.

You know, thinking about it, concepts in like Minority Report is beginning to sound a little less convoluted...

Did the House not vote on this? I'm surprised it passed either way. There's a few Republicans that I can't believe voted yes. Part of me thinks this is all political theater and just setting up Donnie to be the good guy and veto.

This. Hopefully someone steps up.

I know people like to joke that you're similar to Trump, but jeez... you're more authoritarian than Hillary and Donnie put together.
