If it reaches the point where pattern recognition becomes necessary, it’s pretty much beyond repair.

The FTC and a bunch of state attorneys general said it is a con. Perfect advertiser, it seems.

Somebody in my building gets literature from Hillsdale too big to fit in the mail boxes, which sits there on the lobby furniture giving off a kind of a vague right-wing glow. One hesitates to wonder what “LifeLock” is all about. Anyway, HA-ha!
