Dear El! Reg

Please refrain from using the adjective "Smart" in future related stories about these devices.

Honestly nothing about these listening devices is smart. The people that are installing them in their households certainly aren't, or at best, horribly ignorant of the invasive nature of these things.

Might I suggest

Voyeuristic

prying

invasive

snooping

probing

Fuckingwasteofmoney ( my personal preference )

I know these don't roll off the tongue like, smart. But then when has anyone here concerned themselves with appeasing the crayon brigade.
