    People willingly surrender their liberties for security.

    What security would that be? Whether or not they picked a good song for their myspace profile?

    Honestly, I fail to see how passwords for such sites are necessary. As I said, one can view a person's Myspace page without needing their login info.

    Time to move. That's way overboard and none of their business.

    If this were a private company, I'd say they can ask for any info they want on you. But, this is city government supported by tax dollars, so they have no right to such personal info as this. It's a definite invasion of privacy.

    There is no way I would comply with this request. I wouldn't be opposed to giving them my home page along with my professional references and release to do a criminal background check. However, this request is akin to them asking to sit in your home and observe you, go out with you on your personal time and observe you, and to read your private communications.

    There's no way I would comply and if they forced the issue, I would be more than happy to press a legal complaint.

    Providing some links to these sites is one thing but to ask for login information is too much.

    -Ex Bozeman citizen. I do miss that state but not because of this sort of thing.
    I'm what Willis was talkin' bout.
