All those getting concerned about WhatsApp and Facebook privacy issues. The issue is much deeper or older than that. How about Facebook seeming to feel it has the right to link up all the contacts from your phone
... in fact they are so creepy, careless of just useless that it even gives you people's real identities when all you have is a phone number. talk about useless. I guess there could be other cultprits like Google/Android involved. Who knows?
Fortunately some of us in this world are professional and respect privacy and confdientiality so those people can feel safe with me. Problem is the world is so full of ignorant creeps who dont respect privacy etc ....
But hey it happens on Instagram too surprise surprise. Here is a suggestion to follow some (potentially embarassing) profile because one of your mates or your wife follows it etc
... and you know. There doesn't seem to be an option (even the default, as it should be IMO) for none of this creepy life-destroying stuff to happen
It strikes me is there is this whole creepy culture (don't know if its Facebook or broader), that bases social life and networking on some common link without carng about that common link's rights. So you can use people, even connect and talk about them without them even knowing
Maybe it was based on the old party conversation/opening where you can ask another guest how they met/know the host. The difference is the host has usually invited you all to their social gathering

Nominations for possibly the most psychopathic telephone support system are now open
Psychopathic is maybe too strong. But they are extremely controlling, definitely unemotional, a little callous or at least totally inconsiderate of the client. They waste your time, you get through the system finally to get no human and a message to check the web site or chat bot
The most long and drawn out and pointless had about 4*6 menu options and an automated message to go to the website at the end. Oh and if you ever get the person option there is never a person there. Its always call back, try another time. Any manner of excuses

So lets think of the lineage of this extreme maniuplative and cruel shit. Lets look at all the European colonial powers (I know more about them) and how they spread their evil perpetual conflict and oppression round the world for the last 500 years, say ......
... after that, one of those places, one of the biggest and most powerful and most extremely conflicted places became independent and has been that way for close to 250 years
... I cant speak for those empires I know less about (China, Japan, Iran, India) etc. But bear with me. Lets go backwards from the European colonials and where they learned their craft of power. To simplify lets say it was the Roman, Ottoman, Greek etc empires. Get me ....
