Subject: Investors Supporting Spyware

I thought you might get a kick out of a page I just posted.  I've made a 
list of major US companies in the spyware business as I define it 
(tracking and/or collecting sensitive information, either without notice 
and consent or without meaningful notice and informed consent), along with 
the investors who have provided these companies with, by my count, at 
least $139 million of venture funding.
