Don't Spy On Us
A Webring Home Page
This is the "home page" of the webring. The home page servers several functions. This page:
The Purpose of This Webring
The DontSpyOnUs.com site opposes efforts of the Department of Homeland Security to create a dossier about everyone who flies in the United States.
The Membership Rules
1. Because this is an "advocacy" webring, it is critical that member sites display the navbar for this webring to all visitors. Please arrange to display the navbar for this webring, (1) by placing it at the top of a stack, or (2) by placing it in a separate stack or, (3) by arranging to show the entire stack. I can assist with all of these, just ask.
2. When you fill out the description of your site, be sure to describe how it relates to the topic of this webring. The casual visitor should quickly and easily see the relationship.
4. No "adult" or commercial sites. Also no hate, animal cruelty or links to "adult" sites.
5. Place the webring code onto the registered page. You must register the page that will contain the code for the webring controls. "Pass_L" is not permitted for this webring.
6. From time to time, I email members of this webring to provide news related to the WebRing.com system, other webring systems or webrings in general, to announce new webrings, and for similar purposes. I frequently write suspended members to offer help in reactivating their sites.
7. I've posted other membership rules on a page on my site at www.JamesSHuggins.com/h/rng1/wdc_tos.htm and I incorporate them here by reference. I encourage you to read them. I also encourage you to read the WebRing.com terms of service at dir.webring.com/h?terms. Your submission constitutes explicit acceptance of these terms.
How Long Will Approval Take?
I work diligently to process applications within 3 weeks. Sometimes, however, because of an increased volume and my travel schedule, it can take as much as 6 weeks.
You can find out the progress at any time by checking my Ringmaster Profile Page. Just click on my User ID (JLIILJ) that appears at the top of all the webring list pages for the webrings I own. Click here to see how far behind I am right now.
If you have any questions or if your special and unusual circumstances somehow require special handling, please click here to email me.
NB: The WebRing.com system loads the navbar on this page.
To join this webring, click here or on the link below the webring graphic at the top of this page.

Comments for the Don't Spy On US
After you check out these particular topics, you might like to explore the rest of my site (and get to know me better). I recommend that you start with my "Home" Page. From there the "Front Door" will provide some highlights of the site, information on my navigation scheme and a bevy of graphics for the organizations I belong to and support. Then "Stuff About Me" will provide more info about me than you could possibly want. (I've included all these links in the link list below.)
From there, I'd suggest just exploring the various parts of the site as suits your interests.

Other Webring Information
Webring FAQ: What is a webring? Is it webring (one word) or web ring (two words)? Is it webring (no caps), Webring (initial cap) or WebRing (double caps)? How many webring systems are there? How do webrings work? Why would someone want to join a webring? How does someone join a webring? How does someone create a webring?
WebRing.com Changes Big Time --- It was October 2001 that WebRing.com came into existence following the end of Yahoo! Webring. Now, 5 years later, WebRing.com is changing again. Moving from primarily a free service to primarily a paid service, the system is undergoing massive change. Stay tuned.
Ringlink Activity --- While Ringlink has not released a new version since Version 3.2 on 21.Feb.2005, the system seems to be getting a lot of activity. Many people are discovering this great webring system and moving their webrings here. If you don't know about Ringlink, definitely check out this great webring system. I personally recommend it.
WoW --- The World of Webrings features the World of Webrings discussion list. It offers a forum for both webring owners (ringmasters) and webring members to discuss the latest hot topics about all webrings, including WebRing.com, Ringlink, Alt-Webring, RingSurf, Bravenet and others. If you belong to any webring in any webring service, you should join this list.
RingSurf Passes 3 Year Anniversary --- It was 3 years ago, on 16.Aug.2003 when the WoW list list noted that RingSurf's domain name registration had changed. Then the new owner came forward. A RingSurf Feature List was developed and debated. Then, on Thanksgiving day, 27.Nov.2003 the new owner posted on the WoW list that the new RingSurf is up! If you haven't checked it out lately, see what has happened in the last three years.
Article About Webrings --- Check out this excellent Salon.com article about the history of Yahoo! and WebRing.com: The Strange Saga of Yahoo and Webring . For some, it will bring back memories. For others, it will explain the history. Now, I wonder if they will update it to talk about the latest WebRing.com changes.
Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
Webrings: General Information
This subsection includes general information about webrings. Webrings can be hosted by a variety of different services. This section deals with the overall concepts and issues, not with any one particular "brand" of webring.
The WebRing.com System
This subsection includes specific information about the WebRing.com system.
While not the only webring system on the net, it is the best known and the most used. I own many webrings in this system and belong to many webrings in this system. (I also own and belong to many webrings in other systems as well.) Click here or on the graphic.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
