It's amazing how quickly one gets labeled a "conspiracy theorist" as a consequence of having a problem with crap like this. Even when you point out a mainline article like this one, there's always going to be some loon saying "Oh you're exaggerating! Oh, you're just being paranoid!"

There's no conspiracy here, just blatant mistreatment of customers if you ask me.

Initially, Cisco updated their privacy policy to give them the right to keep track of things like how much traffic goes through your router and which websites you're looking at:
Quote:
Then the article goes on to state:

You agree not to use or permit the use of the Service: (i) to invade another's privacy; (ii) for obscene, pornographic, or offensive purposes; (iii) to infringe another's rights, including but not limited to any intellectual property rights; (iv) to upload, email or otherwise transmit or make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, spam, junk mail or any other form of solicitation; (v) to transmit or otherwise make available any code or virus, or perform any activity, that could harm or interfere with any device, software, network or service (including this Service); or (vi) to violate, or encourage any conduct that would violate any applicable law or regulation or give rise to civil or criminal liability.
Quote:
As a result of that, Cisco reserves the right, 'without limitation,' to transform your router into a useless brick if they decide you're enjoying your porno just a little too much, or if they catch you browsing the Pirate Bay. God forbid that they catch you browsing the Pirate Bay in search of porn.
There ya go.
