Privacy or inordinate paranoia
Privacy or inordinate paranoia?
I was just reading a post by a sailnetter asking where to find something. I happened to have an extra and thought I would offer it to them. I went to their profile to see where they live and the profile was empty.
Now, I can understand why you would not want to put your street address, city, postal code, social insurance number, addresses of your grand children, but you general geographic location?
Give me a break.
Oh well - there certainly is an overwhelming culture of fear among a very large segment of the population.
Just my morning observation after only one cup of coffee.
