Thought Of The Day: Privacy Policies

ATTprivAT&T just updated their privacy policy and sent me a note to let me know how much they value my privacy. I then had to click on no fewer than seven different links to opt-out of the company selling information about my account and my wireless phone and internet activities to other companies. I even wasted more than a half hour navigating the phone carrier’s clusterfuck of an automated helpline, just so I can protect my privacy.

If these fucktards really valued me and my privacy, then why don’t they make the sharing of customer information an opt-in thing instead of an opt-out one?
