How else was he supposed to get a date?

I do like that they pointed out that there may well be a perfectly reasonable reason to get a copy, if they’re investigating how it works. After all, they might want to go after the people that use it, or tie the maker to the illegal use.

It could be a matter of ‘how do perps use this to creep on the good citizenry.’ Or not. Worth looking into.


#5

Given the refusal of an explanation, it seems overly charitable to leave a legitimate excuse on the table…


#6

Given the absence of specific evidence of misuse, it seems prejudicial to discuss only the possible abuses


#7

Given the general climate of abuse by authorities everywhere, it seems hopelessly naive to imagine there might be a good reason behind this.

Why the fuck not be prejudiced. Somebody needs to make up for all the rubes still being sucked in.

prejudicial != prejudiced
