I just read on The Register that British Telecom will begin their third trial of the despicable Phorm data pimping service. For reasons why this is so appalling, visit the nodpi and badphorm websites.
Alex Hanff over at nodpi reckons that the opt in/out system it seems that the BT data pimps will use still falls foul of legal requirements. For my part, I believe that the whole system is vile, immoral and underhand. There are a variety of aspects to the antics that the BT Data Pimps have conducted over the last few year that leave a particularly sour taste.
After several years of (mostly) excellent service from BT, I have decided to part company. This evening I phoned to request a MAC code.
