    Wink

    It certainly looks like WAYN.com is not a very popular site with the security gurus here.

    Well, It Seems WAYN.com ( Where Are You Now ) is at it again.

    WAYN.com ( Where Are You Now )is now whoring its members by sending e-mails to everyone telling them when new people register and what area they are from.

    I also notice thay WAYN.com ( Where Are You Now ) is using out of date mapping as they have me listed in the wrong location. (despite having my town and street)

    WAYN.com ( Where Are You Now ) states it has over 7 million members. I just wonder if WAYN.com means its actually spamming 7 million people.

    WAYN.com (Where Are You Now) illegal or just unethical?

    So is this passing on of details illegal or just unethical.

    What do you think folks?

    the legallity depends on what you agreed to when you signed up....

    Personally....I never sign up to these types of site...if I do need to I give my fluff email account to track the shite they send me.

    I do however believe it is unethical....as I am sure it is buried deep in the EULA.......in reality...how many user read it....and they are preying on this

    I wonder if it's possible to challenge an EULA for maliciously hiding of it's terms and conditions?

    I guess that would depend on where you reside....and the local\federal laws.

    I believe it falls into that gray area of internet law.

    User is in one jurisdiction ...site owner is in another....server is hosted in yet another
