Default Virgin Media Ad deal with Phorm causes a Storm

http://www.cableforum.co.uk/article/...causes-a-storm

95% of those who took part in the poll, do not want their every move on the
web tracked and then this data sent to a third party.

(The other 5% who voted for were VM Employee`s Namely Fuggly, Alex and Mark)

Given those stats then only 100 people voted in this "poll". Of the 3
MILLION VM customers, exactly what %age is 100?

Hardly representative is it?

Perhaps not, but the HUGE amount of protest in the VM newsgroups is
pretty indicative of thelevel of concern that's felt.
