I value my privacy rights and I feel that we are slowly loosing them (
but this is a whole different thread altogether )
B U T If I go to an event such as the Picnic I expect people to take
pics and put them online for the whole gang to view.
Just like going to the beach, to a concert, to a car show or any other
public or 'semi' public event.
Obviously I do not expect to see the pictures popping up all over the
web with me being the focus, this is why I do not show up dressed funny.
So bottom line from my point of view is that using common sense and
being considerate is always good but sometimes a good portion of self
confidence ( yeah I don't mind being seen with you folks ) is in order.
