Man it must take 2 hours to load the front page and get to the forums, let alone post!
Hope there is no one sniffing exit node traffic on you! It's all unencrypted from the exit node to your secure proxy.
Wow, you just lost me there. Care to spiral orbit until you land back on this thread?

All these and more are just "out of context" language ideas that show the comedian was mostly out of original ideas that day and was desperate for new material.
The Tor network itself is quite secure, the traffic within it is encrypted however when the traffic leaves the Tor network and re-enters the public internet, any data being transmitted is visible to whoever runs the Tor exit node.
Which means unless you use your own encryption, any plain text data sent can be captured.

So your telling me that ATS isn't a social networking site. If your posting on this site you have an account with a username and pw. You have a profile, you can post pics, likes & dislikes, you can send messages and you can chat. I say hmmmmm....and you think your off the grid? lol

My "friends" and I use facebook to network and save the lives of thousands of death row dogs throughout the US that would otherwise be unseen, and killed. Photos amd videos are taken of death row "shelter" dogs, and cats. Then the photos/videos are circulated/tagged all over our walls and rescue group sources, via our "friends". So very many lives are saved this way.
It's amazing and wonderful for the ones we can and do save! Heartbreaking for the many we cannot.
Did you know that over 6 to 7 million dogs and cats are killed in the US in so called "shelters" , every year?
Not all facebook use is frivolous waste of time.

If I want to communicate then I either use the phone or meet someone and occasionally I use an e-mail .............
You lot want to be Sheeple then you go ahead and be sheeple.............ba ba ba ba
Phone bills get expensive when calling interstate all the time, and it's not so easy 'just meeting up' when your family lives far away.

Well, then I guess you could create a new e-mail account using a different name. No? And this is a genuine question. Not me being a smartalec: I said I deleted information from my profile. When I log on my FB account, I, the one whos account it belongs to, can no longer see that info. It is blank. I have yet to see it somehow magically appear filled back in. So, if I'm not seeing it, where did it go? Other than someone seeing the info and copying it before I deleted it, how can someone extract what has been deleted? I am very curious how this works.

Google takes a snapshot of each page it examines and caches (stores) that version as a back-up. The cached version is what Google uses to judge if a page is a good match for your query.
Practically every search result includes a Cached link. Clicking on that link takes you to the Google cached version of that web page, instead of the current version of the page. This is useful if the original page is unavailable because of:
A down, overloaded, or just slow website
The owner’s recently removing the page from the Web
Sometimes you can access the cached version from a site that otherwise require registration or a subscription.

I wonder if there is really going to be an opera about this?
Secondly, it is very easy to compile a dossier on someone from googling them. I don't even need your FB account or your twitter, go ahead and lock them down. I can glean enough nuggets from what other people post to or about you, to have no problem in developing a good file you. (I am talking about avid social network users for the most part, but really anyone anymore.) If I have your name, I have half the work done. If I have a name and approximate age, or location, I can find out a lot about you online. You can lock your pages down, but unless all of your friends do, then it is fair game. And for people who live with a phone in their hand, glued to technology 24/7, I have seen very internet ignorant people using these services/social networks. They twit their every move, they FB their every mood, they tag every photo, they geotag their locations, then want to complain about privacy or being stalked. Ha! I say if you put it out there you want people to know about it. It is good to be cautious, because you never know who is watching you online.
