YES! The Charlie Brooker episodes are gold. Others are great but lack the spooky Brooker touch.

What does "/y" mean? Is that some reference to generation Y? Or?


In any case, you can't compare situations. Facebook has a real name policy and its use cases is many times of personal nature; LinkedIn has work colleagues and known people, so it's very likely you have real information there too; Instagram usually has personal pictures, etc, but in all of these cases you can set privacy settings which means that only you and friends or friends and friends of friends or everybody can see all or some of the posts. This startup wants in on everything. The scope of OCN is completely different. First of all it's a public forum, so you know what you're getting into and then it's tech related, so if you get to know more about people on other topics it's incidental and off-topic. Also, people use Facebook to stay in touch with family members and friends that live far away which is personal and nothing comparable to OCN.

The only comparable situation is if I were to ask if you would be ok to give this company your OCN login credentials so that they can also read your private messages.

I actually agree with this.

Its a very slippery slope, but people simply can not be trusted anymore. Too many idiots are willing to pay for vacations and booze before paying rent.

Why are you ok with a disgusting shortcut when a much simpler method has existed for ages? Demand two months rent in advance (three at most), which count as payment for the first month and a reserve if you don't pay subsequent months. If by the agreed date on any subsequent month you don't pay the rent, the landlord has more than enough time to evict you and not lose money. The eviction lawsuit should be modernised in the countries where it still hasn't in order to speed up the process so that this works. You don't take shortcuts, you just need to make the system better, not go backwards.

This whole low cost mentality where people will let go of anything in order to get a plate of soup is going to cost society dearly in the end. And as always, it's the poorer people that will suffer the most. Rich people will buy the house and keep their privacy.

And for jobs (the other project this startup has) there are letters of recommendation from your previous employer. First time employees will always be a risk that is only mitigated by your resume to a certain point (what school / college you attended, if you were a good student, etc), it's not by giving away everybody's privacy that you solve that problem, it's just something that you have to account for as an inherent risk in life.

 - In retrospect now that you've clearly thought about it more than I initially did you are correct in the context of Social Media the subject is referring to. I see Zealord already explained /y. Again your post is spot on. I admit when I'm being sarcastically wrong. I wish others would though... Not you, but others who know who they are lol.

 

For the topic at hand we seem to have many in society making money by throwing someone else under the bus. Someone should make a business called Karma whose purpose is to find companies like these specifically and expose them when they are cheating on taxes etc.

 

OT:

I don't know how, but this subject reminds me of an old movie of Vigilante justice. how this applies is beyond me. It was a vigilante group called Star Chamber or something like that... It was an underground court...If they thought someone got away with rape of a child or murder they'd put a hit on them. Made for interesting drama back in the day. I think Michael Douglas starred in it.
