Re: [Voip.ms] voip.ms compromised the privacy of Canadian teleph
said by nitzan:Pretty much. I don't have much expectation for privacy when using VoIP, POTS, cellphones and e-mail. I'm no expert but I know enough to know that, well, "lots of things can happen" on those networks. I think the OP and OZO are mistaking a "well, duh!" with respect/love for privacy. said by OZO:
As you can see from this thread, we have different cultures. One that respects privacy and freedoms (very small portion of posts here share that feeling). And another one, that gives a damn about it and calls "Asshat" everyone around, who thinks different.
That's not the issue. I completely and totally believe in and support privacy. The problem is that the OP is coming out and blaming Voip.MS specifically for "compromising" his privacy when he really shouldn't have expected any to begin with. There is no privacy with any sort of unencrypted communication - VOIP included. Accusing a provider of compromising your privacy because they let their packets pass through the US is ridiculous - as if the Canadian government doesn't do the exact same thing. If you want privacy - implement (and pay for) encryption.
