Methods of ensuring legal compliance

I have a request pending under the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and have reason to believe it will likely not be complied with. If I seek redress via Kali Linux and Python scripts in order to access the required information, do people think this a reasonable action?

Re: Disparate Impact and Fair Housing Act (1968)

Also regarding enforceability of arrangements like this, isn't that supposed to be the role of the police... and of the secret service.

Re: Disparate Impact and Fair Housing Act (1968)

Could someone explain to a non-American what the rationale is behind these two... whatever you call them. Laws? I got pointed to these elsewhere and read their Wikipedia pages.

Re: Banned from Stack Exchange

Which amazing stories? True ones or the part-fiction? Do you feel there was a story behind the post, or a genuine question, or a bit of both?

Freelance coding: what should I expect?

It's difficult to know exactly how to phrase what I'm asking, in some ways, but as someone new to the freelancing world I'm finding it all a bit bizarre. One minute I'll have someone offering me $120 for some fairly simple Systems Admin work, will overlook any errors or problems, and be extremely gr...

Re: 1772: "Startup Opportunity"

As a reseller for Wandering Shop items, I'm not sure how he can't be found, although if he acts in the capacity of an eBay site, merely representing itself as a C2C enabler, then maybe that's how it gets away with many bad reviews on most of its 'sellers'.
