The headline at HuffPo reads: "Abusers using spyware to monitor partners," referring to this article, as if people who monitor what their significant others are doing is automatically abuse. It ignores the fact that there are many cheating spouses out there, and the way that they get caught is through the use of this software. In my mind, it is no different than the spouse who hires a private detective to catch a cheating spouse.
However, that isn't my point. My point here is this: If using software to monitor a spouse's activity is abusive, then why are we allowing our government to do it?
