Jumping to conclusions

About this comic

Drives me crazy that people act like their email address being public is the equivalent to a breach of their personal security. It’s not. Anyway, whipped this up in response.

    In a world where practically everything’s public knowledge, people are still concerned about the slightest breach of privacy? We’re all basically Big Brother!

    On the other hand, one ex-coworker who wouldn’t listen to my instruction to use BCC: for mass emails is all it took. Many days bring around a hundred spams that are mostly eaten by Thunderbird’s junk filter, but that’s a lame form of security breach!

    Jim Bob, live in New York New York, born April 1st, phone 555-333-1111, etc etc etc since before my balls dropped, since the 90’s and dialup, every website.

    And yet, for all my seeming trepidation I’m the one who’s least impressed by someone finding out my publicly listed home address, landline, DOB, boring boring boring. License plate number? Like repo places can’t buy it off state LPRs. Get my credit card number and I’ll give you a gold star sticker.

    An ironic one. I’ll be impressed when you’re leaking my emails. Even the throwaway accounts. Something not so easily scooped a robot could do it.
