    Privacy

    How much privacy do we have now???

    After watching the film -"enemy of the state" it brought up the subject of invasion of privacy.

    with Technology being such a big part of our day-to-day lives...it has been made easier for people to monitor where are in the world, our personal back ground, are daily routines, and who we talk to. So now that camera's are becoming smaller and easier for people to place them into our homes and watching we do in our homes. What happened to days where no-one tried to look behind closed doors in any case of offending the owner and the people who live there???
    Also now that mobile phones have been invented its easier for people to track our calls.

    What do you think about the Privacy as it stands at the moment and are you worried thats soon we will have no privacy left because everyone will know everyone's business and more.

    Do you think our Privacy is being invaded with out our knowing??
    How do you feel about us not having any privacy at all??
    Any views or opinion you have on the subject is greatly appreciated!!
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    Re: Privacy

    so many questions asked in one post lol. but meaningful questions none the less, so i'll do my best to answer them.

    it's true that our privacy is becoming less and less protected as technology advances, but the law is still in effect. as a civilian, i shouldn't feel threatened by someone else trying to find out more information about me. i believe that's labelled as stalking, or somewhere along those lines - against the law.

    i do believe that our privacy is being invaded without our knowing, but really, what can we do? we really have no proof, and we might just be paranoid or something. everything's based on evidence, and if we don't have any, then we'd better not go around falsely accusing others.

    we do have privacy, but just not as much as we used to have. that is, before technology came into the world. i'm starting to think - those who actually invent spyware technology meant for the government or something... do they ever think their plan could backfire? because that's what's happening.

    but it can't be helped. if we choose to use the internet, then we're risking a hacker hacking into our computers. if we use mobiles, then we're risking the possiblity that someone might track us down. so really, it can't be helped. but you know, i really pity stalkers and people alike them. don't they have anything better to do?

    True you can be tracked by your mobile phone. By going to your options you can turn this feature off though. If you still don't think this is enough, turn it off. Still worried? Smash it and live in the woods and become a hermit.

    Though it is harder to secure your privacy nowadays, you can't just abandon technology. There are also many cases of our privacy being invaded. The internet is a prime example. But most of these things that cause or privacy to be invaded is our doing. You can stop using your cell phone, and internet. And though not having privacy at all is a scarry idea, we have been slowly working twards it for a long time. Look how shameless we are compared to colonial times. Or compared to other countries. I guess it's just a matter of how you were raised.

    As a citizen of the US, I think the amount of privacy given to us could be better. However, I totally understand that freedom does not come free. I'm willing to sacrifice a few of my privacy rights to live in a safer environment. ^^

    Re: Privacy

    If you guys are really looking for the truth about how much privacy Americans have, check out "The Patriot Act" by the good old President Bush. That Act allows the government to basiclly monitor anything you do, like: use the Telephone, use a cellular phone, use your email, use anytype of video confrencing, or post on forums *looks over his shoulder*. Thats why if you really wan't privacy you need to investigate "Encryption". They have encryption formulas these days that would currently take 100+ years to crack (I plan on not caring about privacy in 100+ years, so I use encryption ), like blowfish encryption. Well, Hope that was helpful

    See ya Around, さょぉはら (I think thats right - sa-yo-o-na-ra *usless there is a kanji for it *shrugs**)

    They could be looking at you taking a bath.......but you know just to be safe, let them.

    I think it's stupid actually. I thought we were the country of freedom. I guess the U.S isn't what it used to be.....damn technology heh.
