I don't really know much about this but whoever started spreading them should be buried alive. Judging from its engineering I'll have to say M*croshit!!!

I know some programmer's software can only be supported by incorporating spyware along with the program. But isn't there any other way?

Tell me what you think!!!! Burn spyware!!!! Die Adware!!! Go to hell Mailware!!! Damn you M*croshit and your damn ActiveX control!!!

From a Firefox's member's standpoint:

Bill Gates = Microsoft
Microsoft = IE
IE = Spyware
Spyware = Useless
Useless = Bill Gates O_o

The cycle never ends. lol - Just kidding.
I voted that they shoulld burn its creators. Useless spyware is not something I ever want lurking in my PC or any site for the matter. It's terrible, I tell ya!

If it wasn't for every idiot who thinks creating spyware/adware/malware is clever, funny, productive, or otherwise positive, the internet would be a fairly safe environment (in terms of the OS and pc, pedophiles and such are another issue entirely). Of course,Microsoft could help by... Y'know, creating something that works the first time around, maybe?

If spyware creators earned a penny for every computer they crashed, they would be rich. Just like what Bill Gates did.

How many M*croshit programmer does it take to screw in a lghtbulb?
None. They've declared "darkness" a standard. - Annoyances.org

Well you're kinda on the right track. It's all about money. They aren't out to annoy you, that's just the end result. Pop-ups, spyware, banner ads, and Google text-ads are all about money. Even if you don't buy the product by clicking on the ad, it's the impression it makes on you. Here's an easy example that most people should know...

I want to buy a little webcam to spy on somebody. What's the first thing that comes into your mind when you read that? For me, it's X10. I would never buy anything from them in a million years, but the point is it's the first thing I thought of, and it's all thanks to the ads they plaster all over the internet and pop-ups, etc. That's the goal of the whole insane, annoying business.

That's pretty much how it works and how they want it TO work, but they are just going to far by installing crap in your PC that your not even aware of. One example of this is when you're not even surfing the net and you're just waiting for a download to finish, after a while you see all sorts of shortcut icons popping out of your desktop. The usual reaction is to delete them, but this just triggers other events to happen, and before you know it, you've just formatted your hard drive.

I've read somewhere that there's a lawyer somewhere that filed a motion to ban spyware. I think he wants the creators, sponsors, and all related parties to get arrested or something because they are violating the law, like Vandalism, Invasion of Privacy, Destruction of Properties, etc... I'm still looking for the details, I'll fill you all in on this when I do. The first one they should arrest is Bill Gates because he started this whole ActiveX bullshit that allowed programmers/designers to allow some actions to be executed through HTML or whatever.

Anyone here remeber the guy that crashed M*croshit's website and got busted and was fined $500,000 and was later sentenced 200+ hours of community service. That guy should be a hero for trying to stop the E-Bill Gates himself and his path of digital destruction.

That's like asking "who likes terrorists?". Of course no one likes spyware (unless they themselves are profiting from it).

Spyware is like an itch that you just can't scratch.

"How many M*croshit programmers does it take to remove spyware?

None. They've declared spyware as a standard."

Well, f**k that thought along with M*croshit.

3. Windows X.P down by 11%

5. MS-created Spyware, Adware, Mailware up by 3000% plus that other guy we've just infected. That makes a total 8,289,747,342,219 victims so far!!!

Bill Gates: "Thanks for the report, Steve!!!"
Steve Ballmer: "We've just made a new record, sir!!!"
Bill Gates: "What?"

Bill Gates: "What virus?"

That's because spyware gets blown away by your arrogance before it can even latch itself onto your PC.

Maybe you should try Adaware, just to really make yourself sure of what you're saying, 'cause.. I'm not convinced.

AdAware, hijack This,spyware blaster,spyware remover,etc... are just useable when you're on IE, other browsers (Firefox, Opera...) ensure you peace of mind because the chances of catching spyware is null.
