One city in USA, I wouldn’t like to move to.

Found this crazy article, about a small town laying like 900 kilometres from Washington, not Washington DC, the regular one on the west side of USA. Well basicly all people that get a job for the state there, need to fill in a form. Which asks the following.

Please list any and all, current personal or business Web sites, Web pages or memberships on any Internet-based chat rooms, social clubs or forums, to include, but not limited to: Facebook, Google, Yahoo,, MySpace, etc.,

Who in the world would want to start working there? You got some right to private life, as long as you can do your job. I don’t even think that it is ok for companies/states to search threw public stuff on Facebook and other socialing networks. Since it is the private life, not the work life, two big diffrent things.
I know it is happening here in Sweden to, companies search all kind of sites just to find information about that person about why to hire or not to hire.
Think it is taking things a bit to long. how can it help to see what kinda of pictures, how many friends, read blogposts. How does that help the hiring part?

Well i find it quite discusting, to ask for the LOGIN and PASSWORD, ok if you do it behind the applicants back and spy on them. But asking for it, that is like asking to not have any people that wan’t to work for you. But then they maybe just want to hire people 80+, maybe thats what they doing?
