There's a naivety in thinking you can move from the 'ecosystem' as you call it.

For an outstanding example, consider that I've never agreed to Google's terms of service for anything - and never had a gmail account.

Yet - if I send email to someone with such an account my email is kept, scanned, archived, etc. Now, should I send an email to another gmail sucker, they get my information there, too - they've just started a profile on me. Any mail sent to me from gmail account? More of the same.

Soon, that ecosystem has invaded my privacy big-time - without so much as a warrant, agreement, warning, or anything else.

And to whom are they accountable?
