    Hehe, I like that google video. The Onion had a great video along similar lines before.

    I don't care about this stuff at all. I use adblock like everyone else, so I don't see any of the targeted ads. At worst, a bunch of marketing companies know that I like skinny naked 18 year old women and that I have a lot of interest in law schools. That's not exactly super-sensitive information.

    If only it didn't slow everything down, I'd sort of like the web censorship policies in China, because it means I don't have to worry about potential employers screening me by visiting my Facebook profile. Then again, I scrubbed my identity while I was in the US and removed my full name and set all my privacy settings to "friends only," set up https everywhere, and pretty soon I'll be surfing through an encrypted VPN.

    Plenty of idiots on WLIB are too concerned with who people are in "real life," complain about "fake" profiles, and assume that anyone who doesn't use a face shot for a profile pic must be ugly. Well. Haters gonna hate. Some of us find solace in anonymity.

    Can't say I'm concerned about Google giving my search info to any government, though. There's no money to be made that way.

    In Japan, nobody uses their real name online (haha, Death Note!)

    Hahahahaha ... Dando ... how many is "plenty"?

    ... and on the other end of the scale, many of those (or perhaps different idiots) dont actually read profile information, because they assume that nothing is true ... so throwing a question back to those idiots that Dando mentioned, if I put a fake photo, how would you know if that's me or not?

    ... yeah ... idiots ...
