Yeah - and we also know that the data is never sold to others, or used for different purposes like determing who gets hired or what your auto insurance rates will be -- NOT.

Sorry for the sarcasm, but I think the credit reporting bureaus/system is an incredible scam, and I think they should be subject to lawsuits.

Actually, it's more closely related to the credit card reporting 
agencies.  Only specific companies get to see, it's not available for 
general viewing.  John and Jane Doe can't look up Joe Blow's rating, 
only the ISPs can.  The same as with the credit card system, and we all 
know that the credit reporting systems are legal.
