Don't waste too much time on this, some of us have been trying to
drive this point home for a couple of years.

Even the fact that laws and regulations specifically remove privacy
in many contexts, stock-traders, prisoners, children etc. does not
seem to persuade a certain segment of "techno-liberalists" that

have both the legal right and might to decide that it be so.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
