Re: "Don't see a problem..."

Actually, and it was my post, and I am quite aware that others will find ways to break into the backdoor. But, if people realised that anything posted there could be seen by others they might not be so keen to put private info there - and people need to realise that almost nothing is ever 100% secure.

Putting backdoors into every system would be a problem but, it's just possible that the uproar caused when Facebook gets hacked people (not just those who actually understand the situation) might actually sit up and take notice - and politicians might realise insisting on backdoors everywhere won't get them re-elected.
