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. (Even drug dealers pay their taxes if they're smart -- too much attention on them otherwise.) They are going to tax volume sellers and cover the majority of transactions that way. Your piddling little trade doesn't factor into the grand scheme of things.

Everyone else long ago noticed how MS flatlined when Bill left, besides the fact that he was obviously a visionary and genius (and not half bad at business either). You may disagree with a ton of things he did, and rightly so on many of them, but you can't look at Microsoft's massive rise and Bill's obvious driving of said rise and go "Yeah, Bill leaving MS was the best thing that happened to them". It's patently ridiculous.

That's not about privacy, that's about vulnerability (literally being caught with your pants down). It's an evolved instinct. If you could shit anywhere at any time without any physical risk then the only reason for privacy would be fear of being singled out ("Dude! That's rank!").

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
