But in most cases the "operator's" opinion will be "you enter and abide by my rules or not at all". Otherwise that is like expecting to visit a shop but the video surveillance must be turned off, which of course will leave it exposed to shoplifters.
I don't care if shop owners follow me around the store with their eyes in the sky. It's also a nuisance to have them check my receipt and bag as I'm exiting the store, but I don't make a fuss about it. I just don't want them placing tracking and profiling devices and/or code in the product, the paid-for-product that I buy, which becomes my private property to take home with me.

Criminals and misfits have never been, and will never be, the ones who pay the price of lost freedom. It's the average Joe who suffers.
As usual there is an idiot factor amongst this lot that simply fights anything and everything but is too stupid too realise that anarchy does not work.
Wow. How did we every manage to get through the decades of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s without anarchy ruling the nest. Just lucky I guess. Good thing we have these corporations, and their backroom buddies, stepping up to the plate now to protect us.
Silly me. I guess I should be grateful huh?
