Re: The only thing about which I agree with Scott McNeally

"You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it."

Provably false. Do you know everything about Scott McNeally? Can you even find out everything about him? No. Privacy is a matter of degree: nearly no-one has absolute privacy and nearly no-one has no privacy at all. Blanket statements like this are just attractive soundbites --- any more than superficial analysis shows them to be fundamentally unhelpful in any mature debate about how much privacy we can reasonably expect in various circumstances.
