All my Sins Remembered

Just got a comment on my blog, to a post I did a long while back, about
when I ran for Ann Arbor City Council maybe 10 years ago.

I did respond to the comment, and that's a whole 'nother thread. But what
struck me is how ironic it is that people assume that what they say on the
Internet is entirely anonymous, just because there's so much Stuff on the
Internet, surely no one will find that one thing they wish they hadn't
said.

Not so much.

I don't regret what I said, and I don't feel differently about what I
said. But I will point out that on a recent podcast, I pointed out
repeatedly to my co-host that everyone would know what she said, and I
don't doubt that happened. In any case, there is no security through
obscurity. There is only security through security.

Funny, though, how many people think they're perfectly fine, because after
all, who's going to pay attention to what _I_ say...

Nope, not so much.
