    I watched our government via trolling shut down lawful protest organizing online.

    I don't post pictures of people anywhere, but guess what. Every idget with cell phone is chomping at the bit to tag you or me or those cute kids and post their shit all over the place.

    I can control me, but I cannot control everyone else. I even have to have arguments with IDGETs with college degrees over this. They be college-edumacated you know and know way more than some dumb hick momma like me, so eff me and put pictures of my kids up.

    Well?

    Then What?

    I am just some stupid hick with a tin foil hat--and they be experts in all things social networking, besides, it's for my own good and my kid's own good don't ya know.

      everyone is photographing everyone else all the time. panopticon. but anyone who puts any personal info on facebook or any other type of "cloud" is forfeiting personal privacy on that personal info. and it's not just the nsa- anything can be hacked.

      profile--the powers that be, along with their mouthpiece we used to call the free press, has pathologized that. It's a sign! There must be something wrong with you, seriously, medically, wrong, if you don't have a social network presence.

      I once had a discussion with a photographer here on dailykos about posting photos of minors at Occupy rallies.

      I asked if he got model's releases? Nope. Don't need them.

      Yes, but they're kids, and sometimes, their familes are just standing and watching from a distance. They don't realize they are being made part of "news."

      Nope, don't need them.

      Sigh.

      And I know exactly what you're saying too. I totally get it. There is no respect for other people's privacy. Tagging is the worst idea ever.

      Facial recognition software is so good, my editing software uses it to manage photos. I scanned an old photo of me when I was 18 months old. It dropped that photo into the file with all my other photos. It didn't even ask to confirm if it were me. That's decades ago. It recognized toddler me. The next photo it has of me, I'm about 30.

      Kids today don't stand a chance.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        But seriously?

        Why not.

        How ironic is that?

          But dressing like a seriously devout Muslim woman? I guess it depends where you live.

          Being a hermit has more and more appeal with each day that passes.
