"I've got my own reasons for staying on the side I am on."

I don't think anyone here has any problem with that.

“I should have added the ;-) to my post.”

I think perhaps my post was too serious following a funny one. I appreciated the humor in Leftee’s post, but I can see why it came off like I didn’t. Apologies.

"Apologies."

None necessary. But thanks for turning this into a gun thread. ;-)

Oh, I see whats going on. You guys are like the mass media, changing the subject with a distraction. I suppose you're all part of this great scheme and comrades in this Stasi secret society. Commies.

‘uch, you haven’t heard about the FDP Body Odor registry? It’s a little tougher for the dogs to use than the old Stasi one because almost everyone here smells like bacon.

Seems to me once you've been profiled through all the known and usual methods, a basic "key word recognition" spy utilizing your phone's mic wouldn't be as cumbersome as the article implies. I'm not saying that this is necessarily what is going on, but these data mining intrusions are going to come with a cost. "They" are banking on consumer complacency but as their methods become more and more precise, they become equally creepy. The tedium involved with managing one's privacy is pretty absurd.

I think there is a big future in apps that can more simply manage your device and social media privacy settings.

For a billion users, that's a huge amount of traffic and overhead.

If, say, the Feds find you interesting...

This is one of the reasons I ditched Facebook. The intrusion is only going to escalate. The connected life is going to be without privacy.
