Of course it's a comspiracy- Les Nessman

"Les: In the top story of the day, General Wallace Nasami, head of the emerging nation of Nibia, denied his new government was a dictatorship and promised free elections as soon as each citizen of the small country learned to play a musical instrument.

Les: Turning to sports, the winner of this week's Gulf Coast Golf Classic was Chiy-Chiy Rodwigweez. Chiy-Chiy finished with a nine under par score.
Johnny: Chi-Chi Rodrigues.
Les: Hopefully, Mister Rodwigweez will play up to par next competition."

Yes, that is how it was made. If it didn't send information anonymously then both NDS and DirecTV would be in a whole lot of trouble.

It might actually be a good thing if it gives them information on what we do and do not like to watch. This way we could see more of the shows that we like to watch.

That was the idea.
