ACCESS TO INFORMATION IN DATABASES - Presently only two people have access to databases, Andy Graham the CEO, and Andrew Suares the chief coder who has worked for 10 years with, and is now a partner. The edit system was devised on the site to allow staff to work on the site, yet not have access to the server, again to compartmentalize information away from general public access.

 E-MAIL PRIVACY (Ugly and mis-leading tactics... Examples of we DO NOT DO)
I, Andy Graham the Hobo subscribe to lots of newsletters. I am always trying to limit the number of extra emails in my box. This is especially important, because I am a traveler, and work out of Internet Cafes. Extra emails take up time and can be annoying. I am not a big proponent of the crazy anti-spam attackers. I think hitting the delete button is pretty easy, and some folks out there are going overboard in their McCarthyism or Gestapo Techniques. I think this needs to end. But.... the problem has become more complicated, and LARGE WEBSITES  are now becoming a BIG PROBLEM. The large websites learn ways around the rules and are becoming the biggest spammers of them all. Knowledge is power in a sense, and the misuse of this knowledge and power is misguide and sometimes dangerous. So I am going to explain some ways that unethical sites collect your email, and then send advertisements to you
