While many people can go around and say that “there is nothing common about common sense,” you have think that there is a point to that. One of the most basic rules in modern human history is about the right to privacy. When people complain about company’s posting their personal information for money, it seems that some people are willing to do it out of stupidity.
The Twittersphere has been aglow lately over the idea that it seems like a good idea to take a picture of your credit card or debit card and post it on the social network. @NeedADebitCard has been pillaging moronic users who post their completely legible credit or debit cards on the web. Their purpose: “to shame those foolish enough to post Twitpics or Instagrams that contain their credit or debit card information,” according to Mashable.
While you think this would be a “no-brainer” rule to follow, I guess it takes someone with absolutely no brains to think it is a good idea to post your credit or debit card picture online. The article points out that some “smart” users are blurring out the important information, I disagree and wonder why people are even doing it at all. I truly weep for the future.
