Not a word about Cambridge Analytica on JB.

Would the same apathy have been shown if they had been a Russian Company with headquarters in Moscow?

Iím no lover of Russia, just prefer to see balance.

Seems to be an active thread here about it: https://www.pprune.org/jet-blast/606771-fine-art-manipulation-can-worms-thereafter.html

Maybe that lack of balance is with your eyesight? :)

Mea culpa V959, but the lack of interest in said thread still keeps my point valid.

If it were the other way around the thread would have been a few pages long by now...

If the thread starter had given a clue in the title as to what he was on about then maybe there would be a better response. Or maybe when PPRuNers saw who started it they decided to give it a body swerve.

The first point Iíll take. The second is typical of JB. :ok:

Siti old boy !

Was the title a shade too cryptic for your understanding then?.

Now, if I had entitled it " Gay Muslims Rig National Elections !"..your little heart would have thumped with joy, so much so the reverberations would have been registered on the Richter scale as an earthquake in the South of France !.

But, I agree, tis true that, here on JB, the coterie of chums that feel they have divine provenance over mere peasants and, worse still, Guardian readers who don't take everything at face value from the self aggrandizing luminaries, do tend to be ignored.

Thankfully, JB has a useful function in this respect, one you yourself have proudly plonked a digit on, as indeed has another who doesn't like inconvenient questions being posed called....the " Ignore" button.

This doth make life so much simpler for those whose sensitivities are so fragile that the merest hint of questioning their learned posts on all manner of subjects, can result in a fit of the vapours and much indignation for dessert.

Siti, now the title has been explained to thee, thou art most welcome to contribute to the thread old bean !

We await your inspirational and insightful commentary with rapt anticipation !

KnC really is the most patronising and arrogant poster I have read.

He/she/it is also the first to accuse others of the same.

If one remotely believes this is the reason one is put on 'ignore', one has truly monumental psychological defense mechanisms.

Balance? Lets talk balance.

Obama quite proudly claimed to have siphoned off the data of well over 100 million Facebook users, with Facebook's explicit permission and even assistance because they were in Obama's camp. Not only not so much as a peep of outrage from the media, but actual cheering amid shouts of "well done, Barry!"

Now THERE is some serious hypocrisy.

But yeah, I do agree with the description of KnC.

Anybody that signs up to Facebook deserves to have the rest of the world know everything about them.

The funny thing about Facebook is that if you tell anyone that their personal data is being siphoned out, they say "Nonsense - I have my security settings screwed down tight, and only the people I choose can see me". They just don't undstand that they have given Facebook itself the right to record everything. :ugh:

I'm glad I never signed up for a Facebook account.

Way back, when it was new, and 'everyone' was getting onboard, I just knew that if I submitted personal information to this company that I'd regret it.

Of course, it's difficult to avoid because most companies that you need to deal with have a privacy statement which gives them the right to sell your personal details,
which is why you are bombarded with telemarketing calls on your mobile phone, for example.

Are we still allowed to call ourselves 'HE' in these days of sexual equality ??

I would have thought that any self-respecting Guardian-reading/worshiping-white collar-comrade would have preferred something more ' gender neutral '

But anyway....

Do please keep it up, though, K&C, as you do regularly manage to make me smile - even if it's usually the smile of the ' He cannot be serious ' kind....
