Can we please add tidbits from their browsing history to the billboards? If I recall correctly, somebody was crowdsourcing to purchase the browser history of all the lawmakers who voted for this monstrosity. Seems like the two efforts should merge.

Sorry. It was never actually possible.

Damn! Color me both embarrassed, for falling into a profound misunderstanding of the situation, and disappointed that we can’t do this. :cry:

Can it be stolen?

I get that the current model is to sell that sort of targeting, but is there actually anything to prevent and ISP from selling the activity associated with an IP address?
