I am missing how these two things tie in to what you wrote, but:

But metadata is more powerful than most people realize. For instance, something as simple as recording Facebook “likes” and website clicks can reveal a person’s religious and political views, economic standing, sexual preference, personality, mental health, ethnicity, use of addictive substances, and more. The ability to characterize groups by these traits might tempt some in the government to cross the line from finding terrorists to targeting groups because of their political leanings.

This is information people willingly place online. Have we seen abuse of this? What, exactly, is the concern and why do people not have enough concerns to not place the information in the public domain?

Disclosure: I do not use Facebook for this very reason. I do not need to feed the people looking to rob houses of others who hare showing their vacation pics online (virtually screaming “I AM NOT HOME, ROB ME!”) or however other bad actors might behave.

People SHOULD be concerned about invasion of privacy, but the more dire threat comes from individuals and corporations abusing your data, not the government. The former have even less accountability than the latter.

Joanne - I juxtaposed the 2 articles because of the naive vews of people like SidewayQuark that are prominent here on LGF. It bascially proves that, the most intellegent, highly educated and “high information” individuals in the US don’t have SidewayQuarks, or that of many of the LGF posters views.

SidewaysQuark - please list how the Govt is “accountable”. Obama has openly lied about what is going on. Clapper has had to publically admit it. The laws are secret, the courts are secret, the findings of the court are secret, 23 Dem Senators say it should be opened up like a sticking sack of crap, the and many credible sources claim it is all for no reason.

The last time we heard your arguement we went to war in Iraq for the 2nd time.
