Netiquette and Privacy - The Netiquette IQ Quote of the Day

One of the main topics around the world of cyberspace is the status of privacy. It is becoming more apparent that it has become very elusive and less of a possibility of ever being fully realized, even in the most democratic countries. Today's quote takes aim at the possibility. Let's hope that the countries of the world will do all they can to insure having this be closer to a reality than a fantasy!

"Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds."
John Perry Barlow
