I'm considering the statement "Joke icon yes, but part of me actually wonders if this would be justified in some odd way." as cancelling the sarcasm. That's a terrible idea. There are cameras, microphones, and speakers on lots of things, including laptops, phones, some desktops, and various other devices. If you include those devices that lack a camera but do have a microphone and speaker, that's almost every consumer electronic device.. And somehow, it's the users' fault when that device gets hacked? Instead of the manufacturer who could have made the device more secure? When it's already been pointed out that no matter how much the users might want to spend time and effort on a more secure configuration, they don't have the option?
