I just posted the article Skype hands personal details of 16 year old to private firm.

A police file on the arrest of Dutch hackers, in possession of the Dutch media, reveals that Skype voluntarily handed over personal information about an alleged 16 year old Dutch hacker.

Hasn’t Microsoft spent enough time making jerks of themselves? Windows 8 is nothing more than an embarrassment, now this.

however, perhaps this is just a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing?

Dutch officials handing over a 16-year-old’s details. Well, in some cultures today, arranged marriages are done among small children - of course, not for THEIR benefit but for the families’ benefits.

And some cultures have had 10-11-12 year olds getting married. Gee - “16” sounds ancient in that regard. Some of the Mormon-esque cults in Utah (one that moved into Eldorado, Texas a few years ago) has their cult-leader convicted of these ‘arrangements’.

Personal Details doesn’t seem like much when compared to handing over girls to men. “But we’re good Republicans” they kept crying as they passed along all those campaign donations! Good aggies, too.
