Re: They DO spy on us I am not schizophrenic
I wonder how many here know that even the powers-that-be behind MTF know when you have opened their webpage, even if you haven't logged on with your id.
Lurkmode lists out the IP addresses on their servers and they have a list connecting IP addresses to usernames (even if you aren't logged on). They use this information to tabulate the actual number of hours spent by a lurkoholic on MTF.
When they subtract the hours from the logged on mode (Gross), from the lurkoholic + logged on mode (Net total hours), the resulting number is used to judge their sanity levels of their userbase. Remember, children: more power means more control.
I've always known this. But now that you've opened a can of worms....
