The examples I gave ware successful in demonstrating a high-risk situation vs a low risk one, and that adults should be able to assess these sorts of situations properly.
Nowhere did I suggest that people be IT professionals, as it's not about the cloud nor any other intricate technicality, but I simply stated that you should flat out not create documents of any sort that can be damaging to your image, if that image is important to you. Someone hacking your account, someone stealing your phone or laptop, you forgetting your phone at a park bench, you accidentally sending them to the wrong person and a myriad of other reasons should discourage you from putting yourself at risk without any real benefits. Those people have spectacularly failed at that, so part of the blame goes to them, as well as to the people who violated their privacy, if we want to be realistic.
You called them hapless, you accounted them no responsibility, essentially treating them as non-people. Is that really the right way to treat healthy adults?
Finally, your post makes it sound like I'm on some sort of a crusade against them or as if I were defending the people who both broke valid laws and violated someone else's privacy, which I absolutely did not. Your excessive defensiveness and offensiveness stems from your own issues man, don't put that on me.
