Do you think it is a good idea for public access to survailance cameras so that you can be watched by absolutely anyone else who chooses to watch you?
Can I also watch everyone else?
...If everyone can watch everyone else, then okay. But not in public restrooms, etc....
But people do need to be able to relax while in a restaurant or wherever....so too many cameras can be the cause of stress. Who wants to see other people doing EVERYTHING? Not me.
Thinking that weirdos may be watching me gives me the creeps. They could see me going from home to work to eat or anywhere, and that makes me nervous. I like to be a private person. I don't want to be watched by everybody else.
The OP is referring to a hub of mine where he made enough disparaging comments that I had to delete all of them.
Anyway, my idea was along the lines of what you said:
"...If everyone can watch everyone else, then okay. But not in public restrooms, etc...."
Basically, let the cameras come but be open for anyone to use and require authenticated access so that you could find out WHO has been watching and who they work for.
You'd need to read the whole hub, of course, but my basic point is that the darn things are everywhere anyway, so why not expand it but with controls so we know who is watching what?
sometimes i will encounter a public restroom that has a mirror on the wall. a low, wide square of a mirror. i mean, why would they need a mirror like that, so someone can check their shoes? makes no sense to me. and in the stall?
I don't think I have seen that. Maybe only in women's rest rooms? I should ask my wife.
yeah, it makes no sense. not feeling comfortable about it, i used another stall.
seriously though, do you want cameras in public restrooms? people get assaulted in there sometimes, you know. where do we stop?
i feel like watching Minority Report now. well, gotta run...
I didn't notice at first that you wrote "in the stall." I thought you were talking about the mirrors for handicapped or wheelchair-bound persons.
I want to watch you do everything.
YoU'rE mY hErOoOoOo!
By the way, it is "surveillance". Just thought you'd like to know.
I actually believe you deleted my comments because you couldn't answer the questions I asked you about your article. Rather you attacked my faith, which you know nothing about, and which had no bearing on my questions. Why you brought it up in the first place is a mystery to me. I simply continued to press you about the issue you had put out there. You never addressed the questions I asked you about your article. Which were basically questionas about the RIGHT TO PRIVACY, and the Consitition.
Please get your story straight.
You believe incorrectly. I deleted your comments for their insulting style and lack of value.

The more I think about it, the more disturbing it becomes: Public restrooms. You get to awkwardly sit but 3 feet away from someone who is defecating, with nothing but a 1/2" polyurethane wall hovering at about...
