Ignoring for a moment whether or not rights are subjective.

Earlier on you awkwardly defined rights as "things that it is wrong for the government to interfere with its citizens doing". Rights are much better defined as entitlements or permissions granted by agreement.

As another poster pointed out this is an issue about freedom of speech versus the right to privacy.

In this case you clearly seem to value freedom of speech over the right of privacy. However, that doesn't make it right (no pun intended) for you to say that the original poster doesn't "understand what a right is".

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
