City asks applicants for Internet passwords

By MATT GOURAS, Associated Press Writer

HELENA, Mont. – Job applicants with the city of Bozeman are finding that their private Internet discussions and pictures may not be so private after all.

The city is asking job seekers for the user names and passwords to Internet social networking or Web groups to which they belong. The decision is sparking an outcry from those who say the policy goes way too far.

The issue has spawned hundreds of comments on Web forums and sharp criticism from legislators and the ACLU.

“I liken it to them saying they want to look at your love letters and your family photos,” said Amy Cannata, with the American Civil Liberties Union of Montana. “I think this policy certainly crosses the privacy line.”

You don’t need someones passwords. Period, end of fucking discussion.

And their user names? Fuck you on that one too, you worthless  parasites.
