Who really thinks that "spyware" is going to bring any harm to them?
All it does is identify your server and give adverts depending on your location. It may be possible to trace people who are using such programs for getting really dodgy stuff (child porn etc) but if you're not then what's the big plastic hassle?
I knew where just about every person who came to my site was from, what their system was etc, what they downloaded etc.
Maybe I'll keep all this info and give it to Big Brother and see if we can't catch a few people trading archaic software.
Pardon my sarcasm? I hope not.
