Kazrath: If I want to put up pictures of myself wearing a thong while ball gagged with a large woman in leather spanking me
4tehsnowflakes: Tigger: JohnnyC: People that complain about privacy while voluntarily posting their information on the internet are farking idiots (and/or assholes).How to avoid having your private information from the public (or government).1. Don't broadcast your private information via telephone, cellphone, text, email or other form of the internet, telegraph, or any other method of transmission.2. Don't tell anyone your private information.That's it. You don't really have to do anything else. You don't need encryption. You just have to keep your private information to yourself.What an absolutely absurd position. Is it satire or something?In a weak sense. Domestic surveillance advocates argue "You already put yourself out there online, what are you worried about?" This is a trollish variant. You choose what to publish and what not to publish. This post is a publication. A phone call or non-blast email isn't.[i1277.photobucket.com image 748x350]
tinyarena: You are correct. An article two weeks ago put the loss to American businesses overseas at $35B annually. The invisible hand has already commenced biatch slapping American companies who are in bed with the NSA. All that a global competitor have to say is, "We're not American. We don't give all your data to the spooks." And they'll get the deal done.
Weatherkiss: Not that bad, considering Facebook is voluntary and noone is being forced to use its service -- unlike the government which we elect into office and trust to enforce our right to privacy.
badhatharry: J. Frank Parnell: Sounds like he's just saying they didn't paint a nice happy face on it all to make the public more comfortable with it.Yep. And it's hurting his business. Things were going great until the government started weirding out people.
Arkanaut: He just doesn't want the NSA to blow his chances at increasing FB's presence in emerging markets.
