Also, most of you probably already know about startingpage.com. But if you don't, use it in place of Google or any other search engine. They claim to be completely private and do not record your IP address or your searches and there is an option to view a site through a proxy if you would prefer that the site does not see your IP address. Google is Big Brother and they are collecting files on everyone. As far as I know, startingpage is the solution for now. If anyone knows otherwise, please say so.
And if you are looking for private email, use hushmail.com.
I learned about these from a reporter at The Genesis Communications Network and I trust her as she is fighting for internet privacy and has made privacy her mission in the Truth Movement.
