PS If you want to discuss the purple flare issue I suggest you go to the appropriate thread. It has nothing to do with this subject as explained there.


It was to prove a point. Companies screw up and either they make good, or they will pay a price some how. This is nothing really new to whats been happening for a long time.

PS I dont need you to tell me where to post or what to post. If you have a problem with what I say, I suggest you PM a Admin/Moderator.

Personally I haven't seen anyone act surprised. Have you? I think it's good the media picks up on these things and legislation is put in place to protect consumer rights. Keeps companies on their toes.

Luckily I don't tailor the content of my posts to suit your needs.

Genius idea for if you don't like your lack of privacy: Don't use Google's services.

If you ask me, this is like making laws that say you shouldn't be able to take photos of people in a public space. Which you can. Where I live anyways.

And when that day comes, please spend a little time considering 'why' so much of our media wants us to leave the EU. Many of the rights you take for granted - consumer protection laws, workers rights - are EU laws.


Many UK laws, including those you mentioned, already existed in the UK beforehand and are actually much more stringent than many of the EU versions.
