This is TonyVanDam and I hate to be the bearer of some bad news!

The Microsoft Corporation (within my inner circle, we called them the Microsoft Plantation!) doesn't give a damn about your rights to privacy. The new Windows 10 is well designed to spy on all of your activities. And it's up to you to know how the manually undo the damage.

Do you find that the general population does not understand what privacy means, let alone protecting it?

Well, take a look at how many are using, and how they use it, Facebook and Twitter and you'll have your questions answered.

Exactly what I mean, they are more than happy to vacate all their rights of privacy, but they will try and complain about it in years to come

Aha, I see. Sorry for misunderstanding you ;-)

Thanks for the heads up! Although I upgraded to Windows 10 for curiosity's sake (hey free upgrade, why not?) I was onto the fact that Microsoft was spying on its users with Windows 8 as they required you to login with your Microsoft account to access the desktop. I mostly use Ubuntu though and those who really value their privacy probably use a Linux-based distro aswell. Microsoft's strategy of market dominance is to rely on people's disinterest and to monopolize certain software and games by buying out developers.

Not being funny, but the browsers you use, also do the same, but to a much larger extent.

Had a nightmare once (after watching Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen) that some girl was being stalked. She was an idiot, though, and kept posting on the Facebook everything she was doing and where she was. She was at that point staying in a hotel while visiting family for Christmas. Anyway, she noticed somebody had been in her room aside from housekeeping. She knew it was her mystery stalker so went about checking out. She was almost done packing her stuff up when she noticed a large gift wrapped for her in the closet. It only took her seconds to smell something fishy, but by then "the gift" revealed itself to actually be the stalker in disguise. He grabbed her and slit her throat.

People are stupid to post where they're at and who they're with.
