Even organizations that promise "privacy for their customers" rarely
if ever promise "continued privacy for their former customers..."
Once you cancel your account with any business, their promises of
keeping the information about their customers private no longer
apply... you're not a customer any longer.
This is in the large category of business behaviors that individuals
would consider immoral and deceptive -- and businesses know are not

Hail subscribers to the TBTF mailing list. Some 2,000  of you
have signed up since the last issue  was mailed on 2000-07-20.

If you need to stay more immediately on top of breaking stories,
pick up the TBTF Log's syndication file  or read an aggregator
that does. Examples are Slashdot's Cheesy Portal , Userland ,
and Sitescooper . If your news obsession runs even deeper and you
own an SMS-capable cell phone or PDA, sign up on TBTF's WebWire-
lessNow portal . A free call will bring you the latest TBTF Log
headline, Jargon Scout  find, or Siliconium .
Two new columnists have bloomed on TBTF since last summer: Ted By-
field's roving_reporter  and Gary Stock's UnBlinking . Late-

technology and culture. Stock's UnBlinking latches onto topical sub-
jects and pursues them to the ends of the Net. These writers' voices
are compelling and utterly distinctive.
