Dear Internet Privacy, we need to talk..

You know, in the beginning I didn’t know you that well. I still don’t, but at first that was attractive, now it just makes me throw up.

I thought you will be different.. oh, i remember that i didn’t notice you for some time after i’ve met the internet, but eventually we did end up together. You were always there, by my side and everyone said that we are a great match. Always hidden somewhere in those ToS’s, you’ve always protected me, or at least that’s what i thought.

Recently, i’ve noticed that you became distant, and i see a part of you that i haven’t even thought about before. You are mean and we are seeing each other less and less often. I don’t even know when it was the last time i felt safe with you. I used to be able to tell you anything and not worry about it.. now i’m not even sure it’s you who i’m talking to.

You’ve changed. Ever since the press is showing you more and more attention you’ve become obsessed, although people start showing less and less interest in you as you can see here. SOPA, PIPA, ACTA.. Who are these people and what do you have to do with them? Why did you have to get involved in such things? And now, i’ve been told that Google is also having affairs with you. I feel like I don’t know you anymore.

Dear Internet Privacy, please, please.. understand that i need you and if you don’t want to be with me that’s fine, but there are millions of others that just want to be by your side. You don’t need to be that much in front of the spotlight. That will only bring you fame, but will drive guys like me away from you. It’s your choice if you want to go after money or not, but just remember this – i have always enjoyed your company, especially late in the night, when talking to my friends hundreds and hundreds of kilometers away, or when visiting those websites. In case you decide to leave me, i won’t forget you and i will always remember the way you were at the beginning – simple.

Yours truly, The Internet User
