I know! I read that, and was astounded by the audacity of it!

This non-legal/non-governmental/completely-devoid-of-official-status web-site has gone to a lot of trouble with their wording, to hide the fact that what they're doing is forcing people to hand over their passports, then trawling every database they can find, to collect and connect every scrap of data about their customers that they can.

And, using very typical psychopathic style, they cover their @rses by saying that their customers (whom they held over barrels of screaming kids who would have to miss their trips to funfairs, etc.) have given them permission to do so, by giving in to coercion and handing over their passports.

And people wonder why I don't talk nice to them (after about 50 demands that I hand over my passport, or I'm a "bad person", who "doesn't belong in a community of trust, like airbnb", over the course of a couple of days).

Just because someone smiles at you while he punches your mother in the face and steals her purse doesn't mean you have to smile back and forego kicking him in the nuts.

It's probably like amazon, and has a total psychopath at the top. Psychopathy breeds in organizations, either through hires or "conversions" -- and psychopaths talk more pleasantly than good people, because good people talk honestly; psychopaths are always on the make.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
