Only if they believe extraordinary and fantastical claims about the nature of the world in the face of absolutely zero evidence, and preach and/or enforce such beliefs onto those who do not.So did Henry Ford, does that mean all ford drivers should be on some kind of watchlist?
Alas, an argument for an entirely different thread.
Very true sadly , but it is a topic for another thread as you've pointed out .Don't forget to mention that he is also complicit in, and most likely privately condones the sexual abuse of minors. Also worth mentioning that his predecessors helped finance Hitler's rise to power in Germany and used to send him well wishes and birthday cards as he cheerfully exterminated the Jews. Alas, an argument for an entirely different thread.
I trust no one you dumb fùck! Such a presumptive asshole you are...
A lot of what you mentioned above I don't use. What I do is make a judgement call based on the pros and cons, ie risk level of information provided against reward of using the service or product.
For example, seeing as you brought them up......
Facebook: No upside what so ever so it gets zero information. Not even a single IP packet to their servers. In using it you may as well send a written invitation to every demented sociopath on the planet to come jerk off all over your children.
Instagram: see above
Telco & ISP: In work's name, work pays, no personal information provided aside from the service delivery address in the case of the landline.
Google, Microsoft, Apple, Samsung etc: See above plus VPN.
Linked In: see facebook
Skype: see Google etc plus Telco
Foxtel, Netflix etc: does anyone think there is an upside here? Doesn't do anything that torrents and vpn can't do more effectively with less risk. Oh yeah.. and it's free!
Australia Post: Service address and name, rarely used. Often delivered to work.
Local Postie: Definite Theif, wouldn't cross the road to piss on him.
Bank: Unavoidable if I want anything but cash. Doesn't mean I give them any more than I have to, and I definitely don't trust them.
Insurance: don't have any
Ticketek: don't use, my entertainment comes to me
eBay: business details only. Less than zero trust. currently plotting the murder of the entire board of directors.
Paypal: see eBay
Gumtree: do I appear homeless?
Online forums: Are anonymous. Kind of the whole point of this thread... Derr! :doh:
My employer: trusted as far as I like, only to pay me what I am owed and nothing more.
Friends and family: you are neither shíthead so.... none of your fùcking business.
Car dealer: never would trust them.
Car service: do it myself
Real estate agent (malignant land rat): don't even like them, let alone trust them. Never used them.
Landlord: don't have one
DoE: On my hitlist.
Medicare: minimal details provided in order to obtain free medical stuff... Obvious pros.
Local council: don't trust, avoid like plague. The self entitled cùnts know where I live, can't be helped.
Utilities: see telcos and ISP
ABS: They don't just want my name and address they wish to summarize my entire life, store it and cross reference it for who knows what. And there is absolutely no upside for me. Almost everything else above is my choice. ABS are attempting to force me to hand over information, no freedom of choice. As far as I am concerned THEY GET NOTHING!
