comment Can robots.txt for your face be made effective?
@Damon additionally to the recognition, it is one thing to take a snapshot of the world's streets, and an entirely different thing to have continous, real-time omnipresent live broadcast of everything you can. If snapshots threaten privacy then you now have that per each frame per second, also indoors.

@Damon beside the good point, I see a problem with that. A public place like 'the street' was not expected to provide a way of systematic mass monitoring, when privacy protection traditions were introduced. So going 'public' on the street today is different than it was in Thomas Jefferson'‌​s time. The implicit privacy protections associated with 'public' relied on human-based abilities, not machine-based infrastructures.

comment What is the technical rationale behind intermediary email servers?
@schroeder good point but the intended security aspect is whether a system could be set up so no unexpected intermediary servers take place in the exchange. for that one should know the rationale. Aiming for a better question I added that.

comment How to fight browser fingerprinting?
I think I should link the 2010 evercookie. Its goal is to identify a client even after they've removed standard cookies, Flash cookies (Local Shared Objects or LSOs), and others.
