Re: New Video Law & Social Media

... and invariably these privacy-intrusive sharing capabilities are set ON as default, and YOU have to go in to untoggle them if you want to opt-out, a little trick they learned from spammers. This breach of ethical & responsible privacy awareness is enough to turn me off completely from sharing anything at anytime.

yeah because it's such a difficult thing to do to opt-out.

Not difficult ... more of just a royal pain in the ass.

If I had a nickel for every time I saw a spammer make that excuse I could probably retire.

My policy: I do not opt-out of that to which I did not explicitly, consciously opt-in. That means that if you bury a default opt-in somewhere I'm unlikely to notice it, and I don't like the results: You're toast. Forever. If you do it to me or mine at work: You're toast for the entire corporation. Forever.

I'm abuser-intolerant. Yup: I get to define "abuse" and my judgement is not open to negotiation.
