Still not enough teeth
The ICO should be able to fine, and jail, for large personal data losses, for breaches of insecure systems, for data mining without the informed consent of the data subject and for failing to notify data subjects that their personal details have been comprimised.
The UK needs to get serious about data protection.
Re : Tom Maddox
Well done agree with every word.
Listen people; it's called parenting. It isn't really hard. But it does involve YOU taking responsibility.
While your rearing (and I agree that 'bringing up’ might have been a better term) children for others might be a good thing for your society, it does absolutely nothing for the gene pool. If you don't believe me do some research on how to make a contribution to the gene pool.
@all Normal & anti normal
Heterosexual relationships are the norm. On this both religion and Darwinism agree.
@Sexuality is a choice / genetic imperative.
I know two 'gays' very well. One, a relation, has been gay since he could walk. He always exhibited feminine characteristics rather than male. He is now in a settled relationship with another man. The other I knew to have had a number of heterosexual relationships, though not more than usual for a woman her age. She liked her partners and enjoyed the sex that they shared. She made the decision that men were off her agenda and then went exclusively to women. So score one for each side of that argument.
I agree that the 'happy ever after' needs a bit more work. Did Disney show Mrs. Shrek in labour, swearing at Shrek and threatening to castrate him for doing 'this' to her? Too many women have the idea that marriage = don't have to try any more + free ride for life. And too many men seem to think that they can screw anything in a skirt and then walk away totally free of any consequences. They are both wrong.
“but it sure does annoy the hell out of me when they suddenly want MORE than equal rights” And this would be more damaging to their cause than just being ignored ever would.

Recommended antidote: a gratuitous beverage of your choice and a rousing chorus of "Kill da wabbit, kill da wabbit..."
I think that this is the most sensible contribution to these comments.

Damn, I can only use them one at a time.
Didn't read it much
Brought the occasional copy as PCW was a bit 'high brow' for me. I subscribed to a rival. However PCW was a respected instituion. I may not have read PCW but I did respect its views on tech matters.
Very sad to see it pass away like this.
