For a few hours a day, Steven Peisner calls strangers across the U.S. -- sometimes at night -- and reads to them their Social Security numbers and credit card data. Though many recipients immediately suspect he is an ID thief, Peisner's intent is just the opposite: He is a digital whistle-blower. "My motivation is to be a good citizen and put a dent in phishing scams," says Peisner, president of SellitSafe.com, which provides anti-phishing services for online merchants. He works closely with law enforcement and computer-security experts.

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
