You sound as if you think I am endorsing thought police. Hardly. No one
expects you to discuss lovemaking techniques with the police, unless of
course, you raped someone. And if your "personality" includes bank robbery
as an occupation it might be of interest to them. Those who knowingly
perform illegal acts and get caught at them should not whine about "privacy."
