@salixlucida As the planet spins into a hilarious amount of foolishness we are going to look back on these sorts of stories and chuckle softly to ourselves. "Remember when things were easy, back when it was just privacy that we lost."

@salixlucida The quantity of words that they use to make the leak feel less important: “this data may have inadvertently been used for advertising purposes”. But the reality is that they did nothing to design their systems such that such private information would never ever flow to non-security-related modules. 😣
