Does the cable box spy on you?
When Alex Jones says Time Warner (and Comcast, etc), are watching you through a camera in your cable box, I shrug it off (because AJ is full of it).

But I've met a lot of characters who claimed the same thing. The meme is definitely out there.

I became more perplexed when my cryptography professor made the same claim. He never been one to spout completely unfounded BS.

My question is... why hasn't anyone taken their cable box apart to confirm or disprove the rumor? (I would, but I don't have cable).

Any GLP'ers willing for a science experiment?

Re: Does the cable box spy on you?
and what exactly are they going to see you doing? picking your nose, yelling at your wife and kids, drinking beer, snacking on junk food, sleeping on the couch or in your recliner?

WHY? why would they be interested in doing that? And who would be watching that monitor, thousands of employees sitting watching, What? nothing interesting.

I don't have a cable box. And if I did and if they spied on me, it'd just be like if they got the spice channel or something. No biggie. I have no state secrets to hide. :KawaiiHitl:

If they're spying on me they must be really bored.

Well, I'm sure they can't watch all of you poor bastards... They have to pay people to monitor, and I'll bet it only gets used in pursuit of criminals or else they would have hauled my ass away a long time ago.

Re: Does the cable box spy on you?
Hmm...I have seen the insides of a cable box once and saw nothing identifiable as a video camera, but if you are afraid why not put a little square of duck tape over the silly little red light? Problem solved, I think. Just don't cover the infrared port or your remote will stop working properly.

If that port is actually a small full-fledged infrared camera, well, read a book instead and test the TV for sustained flight capability. Sage advice regardless.
Rarrgh!

My wife called Jones -

MAYDAY!!!! MAYDAY!!!!

Better question - Why isn't Jones DEAD???

REAL Researchers like Webb and Casolaro were SUICIDED.

But Jones gets the "Scoop" on Bohemian Grove.

I used adaware, but it is too mainstream. Tried ad/subtract for a good proxy. But etrust seemed to get rid of the pesky heavy.com sh!t that none other seemed to get rid of.
