"I read your piece in the Fort Walton Beach, Florida Daily News and immediately shared with my friends and co-workers (I use Yahoo as my desktop news home page at work!)
We use Bluelight as our ISP at home. They're affiliated with K-Mart. After your Yahoo piece I checked the privacy agreement of their user agreement and discovered they too are collecting and reporting all kinds of web data. The trick with them is you can only opt out of the promotional e-mails they offer you at registration. You cannot opt out of them collecting your web page data and sharing it with their "affiliates" and others with whom they have a business relationship.
Guess I'll be reevaluating my ISP provider!
Thanks for the great insight that got me curious."
