Yeah. That's kind of my thought. One thing I think a lot of people lose track of when being concerned about their private information is just how useless much of it is. As long as my bank accounts, investment portfolio, and credit card accounts aren't involved I could really care less if they know where I live, when my birthday is or even how many divorces I've had. If they can use that information to improve the quality of my junk mail, then so be it. I'd rather have an ad in my inbox for a new lens than for the latest deal on Viagra.
I completely agree with you, KF. Many people are paranoid about nothing.
As far as Flickr goes, it used to be a worthwhile site. I would use it extensively when researching photo locations and planning photo trips. It was a great research tool. Now, with the "new" interface, pages take far too long to load, which makes it quite inefficient as a research tool.
I suppose if one wants to display images, or look at other people's images, it is somewhat useful, but the extremely long load times make it rather useless for research, when you are trying to view 100's of search results per minute.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
