> I want privacy where it matters

If the policy is not privacy by default then any private communications will stand out and draw suspicion. Moreover, once something is made public there is no way to take it back. Unless you've specifically indicated that you want something to be shared, it's safer to assume that it's supposed to remain private.

And no software, no matter the genius that code them, can decide wisely... or at all... what is not important and what is private.

The hell i would accept any software do that decision for me.

OTOH the "security psychosis" is driving many users out of FOSS... for me firefox warnings and page blocking was the last drop (mozilla go F... your own patience).

I'm "always" Ultra Safe... what is important doesn't go near the internet not for even a galaxy of distance... if it must go, then its not important, or i'm out of it altogether.
