No they don't. You continue to perpetuate this Internet myth. How many times do
I have to
tell you.

1) There is no requirement in the UK for ISP's to keep logs.
2) My ISP states they only keep what logs are in memory for troubleshooting.
3) My ISP does not keep records of DNS queries.

Show me the legislation that requires keeping a record of every single thing you
do.

Explain to me why they would want to. The data storage costs would be
astronomical. The
legal costs as well. The retrieval costs as well. My wallet is already having a
seizure
just thinking about it.

My ISP is Cox. Cox has no business reason to log data beyond what is
required for network administration. Google on the other hand is a data
miner. They, as their principal business activity collect aggregate
and sell data to advertising clients. That frankly is the business they
are in, day in and day out.

I recommend that Google users log into their accounts and turn off
their search history. Otherwise it will be sold to advertisers wishing
to customize your search advertising experience to their advantage.
Also it would be wise to enter into your HOSTS file the following
entries.

# [Google.com]
127.0.0.1  ajax.googleapis.com
127.0.0.1  apis.google.com
127.0.0.1  id.google.ca
127.0.0.1  clients1.google.ca
127.0.0.1  ssl.google-analytics.com

One can use Google, but is would be wise not to be used by Google.

Doesn't matter. At some point, you had to enter the CC information,
billing address, etc. I think you meant to say you don't store sensitive
material on your computers, not that they've never seen any. Right?

No, the service is via my Bank. I've never entered a fully functional
Credit Card in the last several years. I did so for many years without
any problems, but times have changed enough to the point where I think
it is a bad idea to use any form of financial transaction on the net
that could lead to theft. It was a bad idea ever, but I liked shopping
online more than shopping in stores...research is better, selection is
better, find better prices and products and all that good stuff. You go
into a store and only have available what they stock in most cases.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecommunications_data_retention
there is no
mandatory requirement for your ISP to keep anything in the US.

The UK only has a voluntary agreement, also detailed in the above link. I have
already
posted my ISP's policy,


Has Bear Bottoms cited /any evidence/ to back his statement "Are you so foolish
as not to
understand that your ISP is more of a danger to you than Google. They have a
record of
every single thing you do on the web."

No, and he won't either. He's full of shit.

Damn, Cox's servers are closer than Symantec's to my location yet the
DNSBenchmark shows Symantec's DNS servers to be faster. In fact, it is
fastest of the performance of 4,849 resolvers.

http://bearware.info/screenshots/DNSBenchmark000.png

Must be something going on other than the speed of electricity. :)

Ya just can't always listen to the so called (self-claimed) "Experts." Ya
need to do your own research.

So yes, Symantec can genuinely claim to be faster (Norton ConnectSafe) and
I can forward that claim in a post with legitimacy.

Packet switching, fiber and routing all play a part. As well as server
load. IE: If the Cox DNS server is busy, symantec might outrun it's
replies from YOUR physical location. That does NOT mean it'll be the
same for everyone else using Cox.
 
Speaking of electricity, I spoke with a master electrician last night;
You should have no trouble answering my question of your
rank/certification level as it won't tell us anything about your
personal life. I'm an apprentice level 2, going on level 3.

I don't have my journeymans license yet as I don't have enough time on
the jobsite. In TN, I have to document 3 years under the supervision of
a licensed electrician in order to take the test. TN has gotten tired of
college educated electricians who don't actually know wtf they're doing
and damage property or harm themselves. Now, you actually MUST be doing
electrical work outside of a classroom for 3 years to take the test.

Who's self proclaimed here? Does the fact some of us are experts in
malware offend you Bear? Do you hold ANY certs for IT, networking or
anything else? Some of us here do. Hence, experts.

I don't think Symantec would be as willing as you to misstate facts.

Not at all. Considering you claim yourself to be an expert, mouthed off
a lot here in a dinigrating manner, and were wrong...indicates expert
advices is of limited value many times...depending on who it is coming
from. Experts always have a tendency to over rate themselves and go too
far....it almost becomes a religion to them and they want people to take
their words on blind faith...especially when they have other agendas
involved. You were wrong here.
