The rule is skin or grin. Never both. Plausible deniability.

Me either.

But I don't care if others do it.

But leaking them was a real asshat move.  Wow.

Don't take naked photos of yourself and if you do for God's sake don't do it with your farking phone.

Personal or gov't issued phone? Using a gov't phone to make pornography vs making your gov't employee aide handle your personal business? Why isn't she under an ethics investigation?

I don't get the taboo on nudity, like at all.

If we accepted nudity and shuned people puritanical values, the world would be a LOT better, full capslock.

Step one is watermarking naked people onto the money. Who should be on each bill?

PreMortem: Using a gov't phone


I see nothing in TFA that it was a government phone. Since it was taken to an Apple store instead of handed over to government IT to deal with, it was likely personal. You're never supposed to have government issued electronics serviced by a third party.

I don't know about elected officials, but this is in mandatory cybersecurity 101 that employees are required to complete before being allowed to use government computer networks.

Bea Arthur is an obvious choice.

I don't understand the fascination people have about having nude pictures of themselves.

My goal is not to blame the victim here, but why take the chance of having your nude pics/videos appearing online? Was it really necessary to take these pics and videos of your private moments?

If there was no chance that these images could ever end up in the wrong hands, then go ahead and take as many intimate pics of you and your loved one as you want, but with all of the hacking, stolen phones, etc. you are risking putting yourself in these awkward situations.

How are people so stupid in this day and age?

Unless you copy the pics to a flash drive that you never let out of your sight and destroy the original recording device and I mean completely destroy on the molecular level, nothing is truly securely erased.

Politicians are narcissistic morons. Almost exclusively. The smart people are making millions, if not billions, in industry.

It's not the nudity that reasonable people are up in arms against, it's the loss of control over that nudity. She took/had those photos because she wanted someone, or knew she may potentially want someone to see her naked. Nothing wrong with that. Now she doesn't get to select who sees what she considers a special gift.

Anyone who has a daughter should give her this sage advice: never, NEVER get naked on front of a camera, especially now that with a push of a button those pictures will be on the screens of all the truckers at the Flying J Truck Stop on I-90. Cripes, anyone who remembers Dr Laura knows that someone leaked nude photos of her that someone found in a shoebox

The guy should not have done it.

But you also do not hand over your phone with the passcode to someone and give them instructions to have it looked at by strangers.

Yes.
  Im serious.  Every.  One.  Does. It.

These threads are always annoying because they never get beyond "Don't take pics of yourself naked, stupid."

It will never stop. Not ever.  Let's start there, instead of maintaining a death grip on the absurd and obnoxious idea that snapping a pic of your own body makes you stupid and deserving of career loss, unending public shame, and possible prison time (im speaking of normal bodies, not the bodies of the average farker, which it goes without saying fall far outside the bounds of any conceivable definition of attractive or even acceptable and furthermore photography of said bodies is sick and wrong and most certainly deservering of hideous  and ghastly tourtures to match the abominable bodies photographed.

I work for Apple, but not in the store, but  SOP is they are going to wipe the phone if it is anything outside of their normal troubleshooting scope.

When I remote into machines I literally have to say "if you have anything personal and confidential, your eyes only, please close it out".

The things I have seen, cannot be unseen.
 
2017-07-14 12:53:21 AM  
I imagine this aid taking the phone to a bottomless pit and saying as he throws it in "I was a fool to think that anybody would want naked pictures of this congresswoman" and then the bottomless pit throws it back out.

What astonishes me is that people we have elected to public office, who are trusted with more important stuff than pics of their own genetalia, still don't understand that privacy is a thing of the past and that a phone is not a secure respository for material you don't want to get out.
