Just like cash, they can't tell if you give your friend a few coins in return for something. But any company in the business of providing goods and services had better have their books in order.

Wow that shows as hunter2 to me
Facebook has a fucktonne of information about me
... none of which matters. Oh god, someone might show me a relevant ad! Or find out that I said silly things to my friends on the internet! Nobody gives a shit.
Is there another name for rocks that orbit rocks?
There is a minifridge standard? Does Microsoft ignore it?
