At the entrance of a mall just outside of Paris I saw this discreet message on the ground: "Here, get yourself filmed so that we won't see you anymore. Stay in this zone for 10 seconds and you won't be included in our statistics."

What do you do?

@mrak missing the option "Turn around, walk out and never return"

@zash But if they filmed you doing that, you'd probably be doubly screwed 😀

@mrak How about covering the area with a "Opting out of mass surveillance sucks as much as mass surveillance" banner?

@mrak, I think you meant “Get filmed so that you are in the ‘person of interest’ database”
