No-one is demanding "perfect security". They are demanding *some*

The current model appears to have been designed by a complete fool, OR
by someone who wanted to actively prevent people from being able to
protect themselves - starting with the change from opt-in to opt-out.

Not am I saying there are no benefits. I'm just saying that the touted
benefits are modest *at best*. I have yet to hear one that is even a
little convincing. And all are far outweighed by the frankly almost
unbelievable lack protection for the data.
