Activists Part II

I've been seeing this little quote (and variations of) on Facebook a lot lately on a bunch of politically active people's profiles. Just for the record, it has ZERO power. When you joined Facebook, you clicked agree on the terms and conditions and all that lot. You do not have the power to suddenly change your user

"Warning--any person and/or institution and/or Agent and/or Agency of any governmental structure including but not limited to the United States Federal Government also using or monitoring/using this website or any of its associated websites
, you do NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained herein including, but not limited to my photos, and/ or the comments made about my photos or any other "picture" art posted on my profile. You are hereby notified that you are strictly prohibited from disclosing, copying, distributing, disseminating, or taking any other action against me with regard to this profile and the contents herein. The foregoing prohibitions also apply to your employee(s), agent(s), student(s) or any personnel under your direction or control. The contents of this profile are private and legally privileged and confidential information, and the violation of my personal privacy is punishable by law."
Sorry, but it is just not going to work. It also makes you look sort of silly. Don't just take my word for it though, please feel free to do a little research on the topic.
