I'm even more of a [secular] iconoclast than Roland. Don't get into 
Twitter or Facebook at all, refuse the requests to 'Connect' on 
LinkedIn. But still got something nasty into my system this week, 
Kaspersky didn't block it but later found it and got rid of it. However, 
back on topic: yes, I expect that traffic data will be collected on the 
mobile phone network, and that content may be monitored on the net. But 
I suspect that sometimes the more progressive of the watchers are happy 
for us to be combative (e.g. 2007 File on 4 on BBC R4 that helped kill 
off the ID Card project).
