Trust

I’m pretty sure some of my friends who work in or have worked in marketing have handed one or more of my email addresses over to their employers. As if viruses and bots that harvest email addresses or companies that sell your contact information aren’t bad enough, I’m pretty sure there are people willing to turn over their personal address books. Sure, they don’t want their information shared to the world, but they’ll turn yours over as soon as they get the chance. What hope then do we have for personal privacy if our friends will not protect us and our information?
