    Or LadyEagle or Revmitchell or billwald? This software lets the company read our email? The software doesn't know if billwald is 7 or 70.

    Not all software works like that. I had software that captured keystrokes (without reporting it to the company). I eventualy deleted the software when my kids turned 18. Plus, I found out from the software that they led boring lives :)

    I have a 13yo son who occaisionally uses the computer, but Vista security doesn't allow him to install software or visit unautorized websites. So I no longer need spy software.
