Speaking of Privacy...

And as long as we're on the subject, many of you will probably have received Google's friendly email notice about their new, Google-wide privacy policy, covering all Google sites.

Identity Woman has a review, and is not a big fan. I think she makes a good point:
I think in one way she is right the people like her - who went to college and have mainstream white collar jobs are on these fora with their real names
...and therefore, it won't be a huge deal to a lot of such people (like me).

On the other hand, if you are a person who has online interests that are significantly different from your offline life, or different sorts of online interests that you like to keep separate, it could at the very least be something of a hassle to have everything you do online mashed into one easy-to-access package.
