the author of that firewall article is one paranoid fool. he seems terrified that programs on his pc can access the internet. the programs on YOUR pc are YOUR responsibility. if you're worried about spyware accessing the internet theres a simple solution, dont install spyware. the firewall does its job of keeping the nasties out just fine, if you're stupid enough to bring them in yourself then you deserve to be kicked from your ISP
