...and it ever does fall, it's probably not going to fall on respectable white middle class people like me.
More concern-trolling doesn't negate the earlier concern-trolling.
"Bad things might happen - although they haven't yet - they might, and if they do, they might happen to [vulnerable group], and I'm implying that you think it will happen, and are ok with it, if you don't agree."
Graeme, you've got a serious case of concern-trolling. You should get that looked at.
As mentioned earlier, this isn't an academic argument. If you think the sky is falling, you need to provide the evidence.
Otherwise you're riding the same truthy boat as Colin Craig.
He's straight out of the school of it just has to sound truthy. Which is why he's getting cut up left and right.
But I worry that at least 5% of the population just doesn't care that it's not true because they still think it's right.
Arg, I see I've been beaten. But "actually" still actually has my vote. It actually conveys the current governments condescending response to actual concerns. Whenever JK says Actually you can pretty much guarantee that the next few words will be divorced from reality and common-sense.
Any friends in Canada?
Actually yes. The last time (1 x 2.5 yr old) we stopped in Vancouver for a friend's wedding. That was downright pleasant.
Also: Air NZ & Thai are superb with children. Luftansa, on the other hand, are… sub-optimal.
Arg, my PTSD. I’ve done Finland with a 6 month old, and we’re going to attempt it again next year with a 4 yr old and a 1 yr old. Your “Fight Club” flight brings back memories: it’s that last leg that destroys you. I hope to never be more exhausted again. It's deeply unpleasant turning up at the in-laws apartment experiencing waking hallucinations.
On the upside, it’s much easier coming back. Getting the short hop out of the way at the beginning makes you feel like you’re only starting your trip in Frankfurt.
While network logs might help detect the sort of mass extract that you're talking about, there is no way you could claim that it's evidence of a "low risk" to security. For all we know, people have been popping in and out of the back end for years, establishing a standard pattern of unauthorized access.
Well, hopefully Keith can verify that claim, but if so...
Thanks Emma, for putting this starkly into perspective.
Also, hearing that the files were writeable (editable).
That makes this even worse, which is saying something.
