    This is one reason why my computer is custom built. They have no right to log whatever I have on my pc. This should really be reported to the media. Let's all write MSNBC.

    It must be true. It's on the Internets - pipes and trucks and all that

    MSNBC would probably get a gag order if somebody tried to get them to report on it.

    Because the letter is part of the hoax.
    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    Since a lot of posts have missed it: this is a hoax.

    You can buy hardware keyloggers, but they're meant for 'desktop' keyboards, and just sit inline on the PS/2 cable. At least, that's how the ones I've seen do it.

    It doesn't seem to matter how often this is stated, some people want to buy into the hoax. Scary.
