Facepalm

It boggles the mind how on Earth could have SSNs, as something you're required to occasionally reveal to others, be ever considered something in any way shape or form security-related. What kind of idiot goes "you need to keep this number secret from strangers except of course any official of any organization who might conceivably need to ask for it, because those are all Good Guys"...?!?
