The question posed at Epoch was this, Why isn’t data mining considered stalking or HIPPA violations?
I found this,
I would guess they own your ass based on TOS but that is because the laws favor them.

It Is Finished
Thanks, caller! BBL
HUGS, Gramma! Well done!
I’m unplugging and getting an old rotary phone.
This thing in my hand? Oh… just a prop.
That is real smart.
If you skip down to Andrew Pole was Hired in bold and count down 13 paragraphs there is the most disturbing thing you read today.
Hi folks, I will thank HP by NEVER going over to their site ever again, they are a lying sack of chitbags, and I hope Arianna’s teeth fall out!
Jack, what about a strongly worded letter to the Wash Post?
Just finished watching the BBC’s Sport person of the year, it was Andy Murray (Boo, hiss, fecking tennis), at the end of the prog they always show the sports folk who have passed away in the last year, at the end of the segment, they flashed a pic of some trainers left in a pile, and it was in memory of those who died at the Boston marathon, it was a nice gesture I think!
I read a story today suggesting that the Marathon bomber that was killed was schizophrenic.
Mmmm, certainly he may have had some “wiring issues”.
Yeah, it was in the Boston Globe today. http://www.bostonglobe.com/Page/Boston/2011-2020/WebGraphics/Metro/BostonGlobe.com/2013/12/15tsarnaev/tsarnaev.html
Yeah, page one, above the fold
The warning signs were there with this guy. “He felt like he had two people inside him..”
Vestiges of the Bicameral mechanism still at work (sorry, but Jaynes is strongly framing these things for me these days) – voices inside a person’s head, commanding them. Such people are powerless, in cases like this the voice directs them towards destructive behavior and they cannot help but to obey…
Many, many more out there. Who knows what the trigger mechanism is, or how to spot it and take action before another Boston Marathon happens?
But, the fascinating thing. He was very charismatic and controlled the family.
That’s true of a lot of schizophrenics, they can be incredibly persuasive and charismatic.
I’m voting sociopath;
Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.
Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
Incapacity for Love
Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
Sounds like a guy we used to know from HP long ago …
Several of those.
That is my stalker ex. Exactly.
You tell em’, girlfriend.
Hi TG, howz you?
No complaints, fi.
Feeling a little guilty that I’m not doing anything constructive today, but I feel like I need to recoup before the work week starts.
I will get the Christmas gifts wrapped. I always do.
What I have in mind will be for every news source by all here.
Will you E mail it out to other news sources?
Great. I will take this very seriously.
Can I have my say on it completely anonymously, not even with my moniker?
Hi, Gramma. I’ll bet, if you email Jack, he’d be happy to post it for you so your moniker wasn’t involved.
Hi Classy. I’ll talk to him about that. This situation has affected me more than I realized, and I had a very tough time today. In addition to the HP tension, I spent 3 hours this a.m. scanning my computer & repairing very unusual problems. AND, my daughter & Little Man will be heading back tomorrow, to arrive Tuesday. They’ll be temporarily moving in with me in my 1-bdrm apt. She’s afraid to live where she was. My stress level hit maximum and I had a bit of a meltdown (again). sigh
I could tell . . . you feeling a bit better now? It might help having the kids around for company and help, no?
I hope so. I keep aggravating this darned shoulder. My arm just needs to stay completely still for any healing. But that’s impossible. Hopefully the joy of my kids with me, her helping with stuff, and him entertaining me, while I help them through this transition will be good for all of us.
Thanks for your compassionate understanding Classy–it means a lot to me!
RIP, Peter O’Toole.
Gawd, my puter is on a go-slow tonight!
Q’Plah! Most Honourable, Fi!
Q’Plah, my warrior friend, how are you and your fearless feline today?
We are both doing well. I hope Angus is doing OK? I saw that nasty comment Jack wrote about trying to take him away, which will never happen. He will have to go through me first, and that wouldn’t last long.
Angus is in bed, all wrapped up in his blankie………the fearless tiger!
Good for him! The King of Cats deserves the best.
Remember the Elf Code, there’s room for everyone on the Nice List
Is that like Pirate Code?
“Well, it’s more of a guideline than a code…”
Neb, my man!!!! All the gifts wrapped and under the tree?
Not yet, but they soon will be. It is good to see you. How goes your day?
We need a new page—I’m working on the projects mentioned earlier.
Um, IDK. Winter theme?
Something with some midget porn , albino or not…..
Billy Jack died today, too.
Who is that?

Not only is the LOTR filmed in New Zealand, but so was the Hobbit and now … Avatar 2, 3 and 4 will be filmed in New Zealand. James Cameron is moving to New Zealand full-time.
It would be nice a nice place to visit.
