They have moved from looking at your profile to actually demanding you login and let them look through your profiles. Happening at the MD Dept of Corrections.
While they are at it, why don't they demand all your banking info and your records going back to your childhood. This is what people get for accepting a world with the Patriot act and NDAA. You let one of them go, and the floodgates open. Pretty soon you will have to take an ID with you everywhere.
Time to move to Canada.
Gov agencies already have that with tax info
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
They'll probably demand your POF password soon.

For the most part you already do.
Damnit, beat me to the joke.
But yeah, if they can demand your facebook password what is stopping them from demanding access to private e-mail, text messages, etc?
Why not ask for a camera in your bedroom to make sure you adhere to the morals of the company.
Everyone wants 100% certainty and security in their lives, whether it's hiring the right employee or avoiding a terrorist attack. Rather than deal with the fact there's no such thing and accept it, some would prefer to erode every right we have, and invade any and all privacy we possess. All to keep the fear of the unknown away. Stop living in fear.
Civil liberties declining even faster there
I'm not a real paranoid Big Brother type of guy but this is really over the top. I'm thinking 286 may have some 'splaining to do in his next job interview.
It's amazing to me how accepting most people have become about letting their civil liberties being taken away.
IMO the way to go is to create 2 accounts. One for real and another one for this purpose only. Like a fake resume you could really make yourself look sweet in the bogus account. Just get folks like Henry Kissenger to friend you, throw in a couple of National Press Club dinner invites and you look like money.
Can't you just say that you don't have a profile?
I mean I guess they could always search for you later, but there's ways around that too. I just can't believe people actually typed in their passwords and let potential employers look through their profiles.
Mark Steyn, a conservative writer, has many fans who followed this case with interest:
In December 2007, the Canadian Islamic Congress filed a complaint about hate speech against Maclean's Magazine. The substance of the complaint was that Maclean's was publishing articles (a column by Mark Steyn) that insulted Muslims. The Congress filed its complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and the Ontario Human Rights Commission. The Ontario Human Rights Commission ruled that it did not have the jurisdiction to hear the complaint. The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal dismissed the complaint 10 October 2008. The Canadian Human Rights Commission dismissed the complaint on 26 June 2008.
And that fellow Warman filing complaints in many Canadian Human Rights Cases turned out to be an execrable, repulsive baiter of people minding their own business, but brought up before these Canadian Star Chambers.
As long as they don't ask me about the Suque.
That's after you get hired and they're monintoring your internet usage at work.
When I got hired at a place, they give you some social media paper to sign saying you won't talk about your job or the company online or something to that effect
Good. Things. Do. Not. Happen. For. D.C./MD. Sports.
Sound like someone has a lengthy juvy history.
Ironically I was one of the real good kids when I was young so I didn't have a record. Plus none of the bad crowd actually wanted to hang out with me so I never really been in trouble.
