According to recent reports the developers of Digsby have introduced some nefarious and dangerous practices into their popular I.M. software....this from Lifehacker:

[i:an8cok1r]"The popular Digsby instant messenger client not only bundles half a dozen "optional" crapware applications, it's also using your computer to crawl the web, do stock market research, and more. It's time to uninstall."[/i:an8cok1r]

I strongly recommend all Digsby users read through the full article here: http://lifehacker.com/5336382/digsby-jo ... make-money

The respected CNET editor Seth Rosenblatt confirms Lifehacker's conclusions in a recent article here: http://download.cnet.com/8301-2007_4-10 ... ncol;title

No fear, Ziggy. I didn't know either - but then I don't use IM software. They cleaned up their act - a little.
