Huh? I'm not sure what point you're trying to make, but at this point, the other travelers mentioned are not at the same destination, nor on the same journey. They are only calling for measures that protect their own interests but not that of the common good. Basically what they are saying is 'Leave me alone'.
I suppose you are trying to equate Boing Boing with Facebook? Not quite the same thing. I don't post personal photos and communicate with family, here. There is value in the articles that are aggregated, I am permitted to remain anonymous (at least to the degree of my name) and I am commenting on issues, not exposing all of my personal life. As an aside, I don't use facebook.
