ill do this one time
and one time only
it is not what you have to hide,
it is what others can find.
information put correctly into place can lead to many different
outcomes affecting your private life.
you have an affair? maybe mind that
your spouse doesnt know it.
you like watching cartoons?
maybe you dont want your banker
boss to know.
it is when information grabs into social interaction, when you and
your person are open to display
and for interpretation by anyone
taking time looking into it. then
it is the time you wouldnt mind a
when your credit gets denied
because the guy thinks your an asshole, as he is informed about
and as his coworkers value more
his point of view, as he is the
son of the boss.
so your actual value as human-being
is being diminished by your ability
to get information on others and
hide your own as good as possible.
you are literally weeding yourself
out of the genepool, by giving away
personal informational patterns.
the question is not why is anonymity an important factor.
anonymity is true democracy.
give a man a mask and he will speak
take it instead, and you will never
i respect anonymity and privacy because id like to see how is the
way, humans can archive their survival and evolve the system into
a working one, without relying and falling back on primitive aspects
of their worldviews.
and the other opinions above count too of course
