Yeah… So just yesterday I realized that something that I wanted to type into google would turn some heads if they didn’t understand or get the reference, I just finished watching TFiOS and I wanted to reference a funny bit in the book where she goes to donate a swing set, and I wanted to get the quote right, so I typed Pedophilic swing set, and then I was like… in the wrong eyes…
The problem we have is that its easy to make assumptions especially when we are doing something privately!
I agree with you, if you do something you want to keep private like PMing or search results, hosting data on certain websites, etc and you don’t set it to public, then thats your data that shouldn’t be abused, but it will be, if somethings connected to the Internet at any point, there is a possibility of it being hacked and shown to the world, I agree with your ideology but I don’t think its ever going to happen, but we are trying!
What do you think of if you talk to the wrong people in PM’s or do something stupid that was meant to be in a little circle that ends up out side of that circle?
Its something you don’t control… you know, I don’t worry as much about the things I’ve searched on google as much as I’m scared of what I’ve said privately on skype, but the possibility to screenshot and publish is a thing, I know I’d have to own up to it, but the worse thing is if they edit it, or twist it using editing skills and then they create something elaborate!
So one episode in badvoltage Bryan lunduke was trying to get people to edit the audio to make jono sound like an aweful person!
Media can be manipulated, and thats probably one of the scarier things, that you don’t have control over, who see’s it, how they see it, in context, out of context, edited, non edited, etc
