Depressing & Scary

Yes, it is somewhat depressing.

And it is also scary, because I work in Intelligence & Cybersecurity and I am one of that think long and hard about security - criminal activities, malicious activities, etc... While privacy is a VERY good thing, it is not such a good thing when it comes to anonymity where criminal elements dwell/crawl/slither.... And certain government activities, pick a government (i.e. US Attorney General wanting a web site to turn over web site info so they can track all those individuals {& yes, that particular AG is a slime bucket - allegedly...})
