[PLUG] Amazon.Com

I remember a year or so ago Amazon.Com got itself into a bit _trouble_ 
with it's privacy policy.  I don't remember all the details but it seemed 
Amazon took the position it could do what it wanted with customers 
information that didn't violate any actual laws.

So here I am looking for some books and there is a brand new Borders book 
store a couple of miles from my house (heck everything is a couple of 
miles from my house) but when I look on-line I see Borders and Amazon have 
some kind of deal.

Does Amazon still take the stand it can do as it pleases with my e-mail 

    "Open Source Software - You usually get more than you pay for..."
     "Build A Brighter Lamp :: Linux Apache {middleware} PostgreSQL"
