    I had my suspicions all along that, that's what was going on... Seemed funny that my buddy list would show up on some web pages... I figured it was a plug-in but was surprised that I couldn't find it when I looked at my installed active x and browser plug-in’s VIA Norton clean sweep.... I like privacy but in this day and age, I think it’s about as impossible as finding the final equation to Pie... LOL yes I am another cynic…

    it wont be long before this gets exploited by websites and email lists get sold to SPAM mail companies

    Yeah when i first went to that site i have poasted about, i did wounder why it was showing my on line contacts but that was about a mounth ago.

    cant wate to here what mr Geeks has to say about it all
    he will proberly say " dont wory we have a new O/s that will fix that problem " lolol

    i could understand if that messenger site was a .NET site
    and had my buddys shown on it,

    looks like we will just have to wate and see, :D
