@kev Thanks have to send that to a friend who told me that a few days back.
I'd like to collect together a handful of different responses to suit different occasions so that they don't get over repeated and risk losing their effectiveness.
I like to agree: "Yes, and the police should have a spare key to your house and be able to wander in and poke about whenever they feel like it, because if you haven't done anything wrong then you've got nothing to hide."
"If you say you have nothing to fear because you have nothing to hide, so be happy, not worry. I say, okay fine. Turn over the keys to your car, your house, all of your passwords, all of your accounts, medical records. Everything. And I'll put them into a special secure lockbox, but I'm gonna keep it - *I* will keep it for safe keeping... "
"Noone was willing to turn over any of that information to me."
I'm not sure how often people are fine with that, but if they're not then it'd be best to assume that they've got something to hide and that they're up to no good.
The ending is a bit weird. 🙄

@kev Good read, thanks for the share :) I was once of those folks who said I had nothing to hide. I've grown a little since, and here I am getting rid of Facebook, migrating away from Google, and joining an alternate social network.
