Joe,

        Would one be able to use the hostfile to block 'em?  Also how do they
work?  I'm presuming that in order to do some of their "functions" that
they've gotta install some kind of software on the recipients computer,
right?

        IF so isn't that a violation of the computer use and abuse (or however
it's phrased) act?  And IF so why hasn't anyone done anything about 'em?

        I mean in order for 'em to do some of the things that they claim that they
can do, they'd have to install software on another person's computer
WITHOUT that person's knowledge, or permission.

        What steps can the average computer user do from home to block 'em?

Herman
Live Long and Prosper
