If you installed Windows 10 and like privacy, you checked the defaults, right? Oh dear

I wonder....

... how many people complaining about these privacy settings have store cards, credit/debit cards, bank accounts, or use Ebay, Paypal, Amazon, Google services, etc. Our information is all out there and none of it is really private unless you go to great lengths. And to me those lengths simply aren't worth my time or effort. I don't care if Microsoft knows where I am, what I'm searching for, etc. If the state wants to know all about me - it damn well will do and I can't do anything about it. Seriously, though, what is the big issue? What harm can be done to me with any of this data gathered about me? That's a serious question folks - somebody actually give me an example of any kind of harm.
