    THIS IS A BAD THING???!!!!???

    Most everyone on this site complains how much is being collected. A company decides not to collect information from unwilling and unsuspecting people and all the comments are negative. Maybe the US Government is right in collecting all they can. People don't seem to know what they want anyway.
