     When I tell people that they are being tracked online, they say, "I don't care... I have nothing to hide."  They are oblivious to the fact that companies are building dossiers on them, to sell to the highest bidder... including their competitors.

It worries me that they all say "I'm responsible for my identify security but they are the ones putting it at risk."

And EVERY bank, whose security is regularly breached, requires customers to commit to bank controlled arbitration and to forfeit any right to participate in a class action law suit. This is REAL.

State of Florida publishes the real estate agents home (not office) address.

Yep, worry is in order.

You are not special. Big Brother is tracking everyone. As long as you obey the law, you won't have to worry about it. You will definitely find it harder and harder to hide and I don't see it being possible while actively building a business, particularly in our industry. 

My only concern is that the government will eventually change. There will come a day when something I've said online will be outlawed by the government and then they'll come knocking. But my job isn't to worry about what may happen.
