Startup Plans to Solve Online Identity Theft, But Does Anyone Care?

I monkeyed around with similar concepts in the late 90's - and no one gave a rats' ass then, either. But it's still an interesting idea.

A Montreal startup has a plan to make online identity theft a thing of the past. The only problem? No one gives a rat's ass.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
