I Have Posted Two Threads Now

asking DPers to please read the PRIVACY POLICY for Google. Not the whole user policy JUST the privacy policy and tell me what they think it means. I have had ONE response saying they would read it and get back to me. I think this is an important issue but I can't get ANYONE on DP to even acknowledge it. I shut down my youtube account over this but get nadda interest from dp. It's aggravating to me because you guys are my sounding board! Oh, and if I have to make it personal to you all, if you have a youtube account then YOU agreed to that privacy policy! You have to have a google account to have a youtube account since they took it over.


Your a good man

Evil has NO chance to win on this planet!
It can ONLY pretend it CAN win -- that's all.
