You do know that its slurped up all your contacts, right?

As you can imagine, doing that is really dangerous to both you and your 
contacts.

This is why (as you know) we need to have ACLs that protect vCard 
documents as well as RDF renditions of the same data. This is something 
we've incorporated into all aspects of our RDF based Linked Data 
solutions, for a number of years.

I can drop a vCard document into my data space (Virtuoso hosted) via the 
ODS-Briefcase UI (part of ODS) or via cURL etc.. The destination already 
has ACL settings (kind of like umask in Unix), so once loaded the data 
is subject to those ACLs.

Demonstrating such functionality, once a user has acquired a WebID boils 
down to a copy and paste using the familiar File create, save, and share 
pattern.

WebID's imminent inflection point will be triggered the cumulative pain 
associated with Identity and Privacy compromises surpassing the 
perceived benefits of $0.00 social media services.

There are no free lunches and ignorance will never be truly blissful :-)
