    So, did anybody read this from top to bottom?


    Allow me to give my encapsulated version of translation--

    Fvck you. Fvck your privacy. Fvck your private text messages, emails, places you travel, phone contacts, email contacts-- fvck it all. In fact, you won' even gain access to our site soon if you don' agree to let us steal everything in your phone and use it to sell you more sh!t and to sell your info to others so we can make more money.

    If Mark Zuckerberg can stand before our dumb a$$ Congress people, break the law, lie to them, make billions and get away with it, we are going to follow the same model.

    So, in short, fvck you very much.

    Sincerely,


    Rivals 24/7 $port$

    When I logged on this morning, I was prompted by a new "privacy" agreement (I was on my phone) and the agreement was about a 5 minute read. At the bottom of it I was given two choices-- "I agree" and "remind me later".

    Rivals stated that you will be giving them access to all your data--- just like Facebook asks for.

    Try getting on with your phone.

    I just logged in on my phone and it didn't prompt me about the privacy policy.

    I did it from my computer. I was going to search rivals for the policy. It redirected me to the new privacy policy when I wet to rivals.com. Apparently rivals has been bought by something called oath media and that is their terms of use.

    Oath media????
    That's a very patriotic sounding name for a company that plans to go in balls deep, dry. I think I may be seeing my last days on rivals. I think it said the security policy kicks in on may 24.

    I’m on my phone here 80% of the time, nothing changed or happened with me.

    How far does bell live from you? Notice anything out of place on your house or property?

    Verizon's spun their internet media properties into oath media.

    Lol at bell being tech savvy enough to operate anything more complicated than a microwave.

    Chill out, bro. It'll be fine. No need to stop posting here. We'd really miss your humor, candid opinions and football savvy.

    MM, much love for ya, but I'm sorry clob is right. People need to start taking this invasion of privacy crap more seriously. My days may be numbered as well. I haven't seen this new prompt yet, but you can bet your ass I won't agree to it.

    Guys, I'm not saying that its right. I have no control over Rivals implementing something like this, nor do any of the other mods. I still have yet to be prompted for any kind of privacy terms.

    clob, FYI I don't do Twitter.
