At work I have been having to ship things to people's homes for work. I got a lot of the ladies in the offices addresses now. What were we talking about now?

Whelp, we said this would happen in the thread a day or two ago.

No shock.

However, unfortunately, it's still more important to contact trace covid cases, so all we can do is try to improve security around that data, and beat the crap out of people like this guy in dark alleys.  Fortunately that's my hobby anyway.

Women like receiving unsolicited dick-pics.

I knew a Federal Air Marshal who was stalked by an airline employee. She tapped into the schedule that the DHS shares with the airline, and managed to "coincidentally" be on all his flights, seated right next to him.  Once he figured it out, crazy woman was fired. I imagine she is on a watchlist now.

Washington State is making this mandatory for reopening your restaurant. Only resturaunts though, no other businesses need to do it, but they promised the data is impossible to abuse.

And yet not as bad as not knowing the difference between "woman" and "women."

Like nails on a chalkboard.


To be fair, she was quite large.

orbister: Does anyone seriously believe that contact tracing apps will stay confidential? Every police force in the world will be salivating at the possibilities they offer.


The contact tracing app that our government supplied doesn't ask for any identifying information unless it decides you have come in contact with someone carrying c19... and even then I believe it's only healthcare providers that get that information, not some random guy at the restaurant, or the cops. Of course... that's the government telling you that, so it could change at some point, but TFA sounds like the restaurant was just taking down the name, phone number, email, and address of everyone who entered the store.

Speaking of creepy, what about a magazine where Newt Gingrich and Marco Rubio are regular op-ed writers?  You want to know how I know the fleeing of younger people from traditional media is making print journos double down on pandering to the old and right-wing?

Yup. There's no way in hell I will ever download such an app. MILES too open to abuse.


When the capability to put a GPS into a cell phone happened, it wasn't long before the government started pushing for it for E911. All in the name of public safety. New rules being enacted shortly will require GPS. Doesn't matter since at least 85% of carriers use GPS to comply with e911 anyway.

Contact tracing will become mandatory. They will deem it a public safety issue, and one hell of a Christmas present to law enforcement.

Remember... Not one innocent man has ever been convicted of a crime he didn't commit, so if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about!
