So lets get this straight: this is another creepy bloke in a dirty mac following me around
He is supposed to give me "highly efficient and personalized shopping" - would that be the same as the bollocks with which I am currently presented online: I buy an $Article and am almost immediately presented with ads for more $Articles. Hullo creepy, I am all $Articled out.
At customers'r'us, we believe that increasingly retailers will be separated by those who treat us like human beings and those who slurp data and use it to grow and optimise (or optimize) the shopping experience. TFTFY
me: "Hullo. Microsoft security. How may I direct your call"

Re: Comming between an american and his gun
Maybe make gun ownership only possible for those willing to adhere to the Second Amendment and who are prepared to actually be be part of, quote: "A well regulated Militia" and not a ragtag of individuals who want to wave guns around
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
A disgruntled redneck wanting to take potshots, a grumpy granny intent on "self defence" and all the other sundry wannabe bang bang owners are NOT a "A well regulated Militia"
OK, you got there first.

Perhaps but, if one has a question one would expect a way to get it answered without being (effectively) told to piss off.

Back in September
Europol's acting head of strategy for cybercrime whinged to The Register that the Europe will “certainly cut themselves off from the full intelligence picture” by marginalising the UK through yet another fit of Europique.
