I don't care if they see what I do online I have nothing to hide so have nothing to worry about
I do have something to hide, I have a business and I communicate with my clients and we discuss ideas, business ideas, ideas that we don't want to end up in the hands of other people, especially competing companies.
Is that Ok ? Or should I shut my business down ?
I didn't know that dealing with another business meant I was doing something wrong.
I'm staggered to hear that viewpoint from someone who works where you do, where there are thousands of businesses that pay your salary.
If the government did have access to your information why are they going to share it with another company?
And the flip side of this is that if the government did have access to the information and became aware another country, China springs to mind, was stealing that information for their own use would you want something done about it?
I think a few people posting on this thread are sporting tin foil hats.
1/Money, Espionage, heard of it no? I must be nuts then.
2/ If it wasn't sitting on a server with the most comprehensive indexing system known to mankind it might be a little harder to find, once the chinese have it it's too late.
3/ what are we going to do to the Chinese if the do take it, send a letter ?
