    The theme certainly fits the "sky is falling" drama that seems to be unusually popular in tech world the past few months. Those that are so concerned about their safety need to be cryogenically preserved until the danger passes. On the way to the cryogenic laboratory, be sure not to:
    • Drive a car
    • Ride a bicycle
    • Cross the street
    • Run with scissors
    • Talk to a stranger
    • Access the internet
    • Use your cell phone
    • Operate a microwave oven
    • Drink any fluorinated water
    • Inhale while eating corn bread
    The rest of us need to upgrade to Windows 10 or we're all gonna die.

    This too shall pass.

    And here's the thing - most of these people who are so paranoid about this stuff don't fully realize that the genie is already out of the bottle. Unless you've been off the grid since birth, your information is already out there. Whether you've opened up a bank account or signed up for a grocery store rewards card, most everything about you is in the hands of the government, Silicon Valley, and/or big data.

    Also doesn’t help that posting on public forums (like NBR) can also leak information about you.

    For instance, we now know what other usernames OP uses on the internet.

    According to this list I am almost certainly dead. Did not run with scissors or eat any bread lately though, maybe that's what saved me.

    I think we've beaten this topic to death.
