That's right I came acrossed it on my yahoo news. They think it's the only way to deal with the security issues I guess hackers and such and they think "a clean slate" would do the trick. How would they do this? I mean nowadays everything is web related. I'm tring to do more research on it but it's kinda hard to understand some of the stuff. What would you do if you had to start all over? It's kinda like a computer crashing all over the world. Any thoughts????

I do not think that a "clean slate" will ever be possible...I just do not see how it would be possible...of course, I have been wring before...but there are so many things connected to the internet..too many people depend on satellite systems that provide this internet highway. I am concerned as anyone else and therefore, security is important to me .....I just do not see this being an obtainable goal. Please keep us updated as you learn more...I found it to be an interesting thought, my friend. Have a blessed day!

I will try to find out more over the next couple of days. I agree with you I just can't see how they could do it,but you never know. I guess they have asked for the federal goverments approval to do this. I am just a little worried about what that would do to bank accounts,or people to need internet stuff for medical reasons or something like that. Thank you,you are so nice and I am honored to know you.

Oh, Babyangie, thanks so much! I am really enjoying getting to know you, as well, my friend. Almost everything is kept on computers any more...paper records are not even kept for many business transactions... I can not say it would be impossible...new technology is discovered everyday....but it would be extremely difficult to imagine.....
