So when Google and Yahoo crawled Facebook and found the email addresses, whose fault was that?
When you are typing in your account number or pin number, do you expect people to avert their eyes?
If a company calls you out of the blue and asks for your social security number, do you give it to them?
Do you respond to the emails saying that your account has been disabled, and to click on the link to re-activate it using your own username and password?
If the answer to any of the questions is yes, then you deserve whatever you get. There are enough news reports ad infinitum about being secure in a digital world. At this point, ignorance is not am excuse.
I applaud Google and Yahoo for removing the pages that were crawled displaying Facebook member emails, and for Google being transparent about the data collection.
