I am mildly amused at the backlash to the National Security Agency’s gathering of metadata (nonspecific) for the purpose of national security while the average citizen spews oceans of personal and financial information to banks, credit card companies and retailers.

These “information gatherers” have proved to be less secure than they claim and continually experience security breaches to the detriment of the cardholders. Perhaps our paranoia is misplaced?
