Choosing to use certain services and saying that we should expect to have our privacy violated or that it's ok or our own fault is like saying choosing to wear short skirts means that one should expect to be raped or can't blame the rapist. No one chooses to have bad things visited upon them. When possible we choose to not have bad things happen. BUT we shouldn't have to give up our choices for the sake of security. It's the attacker's fault, not our own, that we were attacked. ALSO, fyi, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, something that coincides with some work activities, so it's very fresh in my head but the parallels are certainly there.
