its not like ... some "people" are in a room , reading , John Callahan's email from Tuesday 10:32am , and using that info to entertain themselves with .. .and make jokes behind John's back
you will have your privacy lol its just that ... in that private moment ... dont make anything illegal , like ... download child pornography , browse Silkroad for some Silencers and some C4 and some remotes
i laugh when people complaints about "big brother" reading your emails ... its not like they are gonna spread MY emails to my circle of friends/coworkers/family or anything close to me that can affect my life
Pro Tip : Private Messages are not private .. admins can read them *put on your tinfoil hat* (get out of the internet)
Different story, poor analogy. You're talking about 24 hour live surveillance and someone PERSONALLY sifting through your belongings and WATCHING you live your life.
Case in point is the internet isn't our property. If you want full privacy, go start rolling out your own global network, cause that's the only way you might
accomplish it (assuming you wipe all traces of your activity when it comes time for NSA/etc to subpoena you for it).

Even then you're not really getting much more privacy. I don't get this. Do privacy "activists" never shop with a credit or debit card? Do they not hold a bank account or any sort of account with an organization that requires some personal information like address and social security number? Because I'd say dealing with people in person is only worse for your privacy as people will have physical access to your credit/debit cards and can make an easy connection between you and what you do (what I mean is they can recognize your face). At least when you shop/etc. online, you can shop only at SSL-enabled websites. Not only that, but you can shop online and look at whatever the hell you want without anyone (not anyone worth a damn to you anyways) knowing what you're looking at. I prefer for my ISP/government/Google to know what I'm looking at before other people that live near me knowing.
People need to simply realize and accept it. Technology and the services that have been made possible because of it are mostly improving your privacy. What difference does it make to you if Google's automated system
(not even a live person) knows you like sex toys? I would prefer for Google's system to know that than some random people in a store I know/don't know.Edited by Stealth Pyros - 8/15/13 at 6:21am
