Web sites you visit can retrieve data from your clipboard depending on
your security settings. Go to this page (www.clipboard.googlemyway.com)
and see if anything shows up in the box. If you are using Firefox or
Opera you probably won't see anything. However, if you are using
Internet Explorer then chances are that whatever you last copied into
your clipboard will be displayed.

You have posted this in numerous newsgroups and have ignored all the
responses you've gotten to those posts. Either you are overly excited
about this or you are a troll. In any case, enough already - stop
posting this.
