How much of the data out there is really private? Do you know who has your data? What they do with it?
And—since most do not care too much about the privacy of thousands of others—why not just publishing those data on the web?
After all, we do not really know how often and when personal data has been stolen… And if our data was included. Like one credit card issuer once said: We inform the cardholder once there is an abuse on their card!
