"Call me back when the Metaverse can handle that."

It's already the case that for example a Zoom meeting can be limited to a private/select group, or that in a large zoom meeting there can be private breakout rooms that are not recorded (or recorded only with express participant permission). There isn't any technical reason why a Metaverse shouldn't have public spaces open to all (including recordings) and private spaces in it that are truly private (including end-to-end encryption of all 3D-artifact data in the same way that you currently encrypt text or audio).

The only reason for everything to be recorded is data-grabbing and money
