Knowledge of my personal life isn't yours to know or exploit
Like it or not, when you make parts of your personal life public then it is mine to know or exploit.
I am sure famous stars would love it if what you said was true. Unfortunately that just isn't the way it is.
You think it's a good idea that your search history be displayed for the world to see
A good idea? No, but if I had access to the data I may decide to use it for something good.
Quite frankly, it's not your privilege or right to know everything about other people's lives.
Of course not, however things that people make public it is my right to know about if I so choose.
Generalizing like that is nonsense.
I was simply making a point that access to information isn't bad, what you do with that info could be bad but access to info isn't bad. If you think that generalization is nonsense then that is your right. (note for irony that you are making my opinion your business) However I can't think of an example where if info is public I wouldn't want it recorded. The only reason to not record public info would be out of fear.
