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

and had my buddys shown on it,

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
