Thundercloud & Eightball's Rant
Educating Corporate America
With all the lawsuits and cease and desist orders being thrown at the anti-spyware community by spyware and adware developers, we've come up with an idea that will hit the spyware/adware people right where it counts - the wallet. But, we cannot do it alone. We really need all of you to read this Rant (it's not that long) and help us; the two of us cannot change anything, but the thousands of you can.
Today, with your help, we are going to educate Dell Computer Corporation. We have used Dell desktops for the last 7 years. We've purchased many computers from Dell, including computers for our children, but we will never purchase another Dell as long as their advertising dollars are funneled to spyware and adware companies whose products clog millions of computers, some of them Dells'.
On Dell's Web site (in several locations including this one) http://tinyurl.com/5k7d2
they warn you about installing spyware. In fact, Dell says that a great percentage of its tech calls are spyware related. It would appear on the surface that Dell is committed to protecting your computer from spyware. But, Dell's public and private personas, however, seem to be vastly different.

It takes more then just a few voices.. please send the above rant to as many friends and family, post on other forums, spread the word. Everyone keeps wanting someone to make a first step.. lets try this one.
