Internet is by nature anti-privacy
The internet (the largest source of collected information in the world) is by nature anti-privacy. Let's face it we have little to no say in what information is collected about us, posted on the internet, shared, or sold. The laws necessary to protect our privacy on the internet are not in place and may never be. The means to protect our privacy on the internet may never exist. The way I see it privacy is the cost of doing business on the internet. Do I like it? No. Is it going to change in my lifetime? Probably not. Do I name corporations evil because they collect my personal information? Why would I? That's what businesses do. Just look at all the different data mining programs, I mean rewards programs that exist out there. Even grocery stores collect oodles of information on us. Why should digitally-based businesses be any different?
