Ooh,ooh, I am a baby boomer and gosh yes, I got my post count, you condescending little fuck. I am also someone who has been deeply involved with self reliance and shit like living off the grid, but apparently your lofty little latte drinkin' brain if beyond all that. Kiss my ass, you stupid cunt.

Yeah, you really missed the point.  I am not worried about being arrested. Some of the wild shit you mentioned really isn't what I was trying to say and also I wasn't asking for advice like you seem to be giving. This was suppose to be more of an informal debate on what people actually think about the topic. When reading this I would guess you to be part of the baby boomer or older generation. Well, at least you got a post count for it.
The amount of stupid in this post is frightening. I think Stromboli already said everything else that need be said about it.

Yeah, barbarian.

I'm always bothered by this and the freedom of speech issue the more than anything. I don't remember where you said you were from, but in the U.S. everyone seems so worried about the 2nd amendment (right to bear arms) that they forget about the first one (freedom of speech, freedom from religion, freedom for the press... etc) Internet privacy is covered in one of the amendments too, though I forget at this time which one it is.

In end I feel that it would really take a lot of money and efforts in reclaiming our privacies and protection of our personal information, if we ever could anymore.

Like it or not us old folks have been through this before. Ever hear of Hoover and Nixon? It's not as if anyone is sitting around rooting for a totalitarian police state with spies on every corner and we're all aware of those risks. Most of us grew up during the cold war when that was the propaganda of the day and that big, bad gubnit would come take everyone's guns and FEMA death camps and blahfuckingblah..Now the propaganda seems to be your privacy is gone, but its not gone. You have choices and your privacy is a matter of choice. You know when you're putting information out there that can put you in jepardy and if you don't then it would behooves you to review what information you've been making public.
Are there nefarious people out there willing to exploit it? Sure there is, but it's up to you what information you put out there.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

Here is a good rule of thumb. If you are not paying for a product (Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc), chances are YOU and your information are the products.

Of course you can dismiss many things as propaganda as that always depends on what side of the fence you are standing and I agree with you on this. I would not consider current SCOTUS rulings propaganda which bleeds into this conversation.

I tend to agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in that the decision would erode protections against warrantless home searches. Courts have had previously held that such protections as the core of the 4th Amendment and its ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. She to is getting towards the end of her seat. When she does resign I can only hope she is replaced by another judge with the sense she brought to SCOTUS.
