re: Girls Around Me App: Not Today's Creepiest Stalker
YMOM, You're missing a piece. You stated the intent in that sentence. "...checking out a girl at a bar". His intent is to do whatever he's thinking about doing to-or for- this girl at the bar. The fact that we don't know what he's thinking makes him creepy. Now, If we saw a guy with skin problems and greasy hair missing an eye sitting at a bar having a laugh with another guy sitting next to him, he wouldn't be creepy, huh? Because all of a sudden his intent is having a good time with his friend, rather than [whatever he wanted to do] with that girl.

Wait, what? Since when does creepy imply intent? A guy with skin problems and greasy hair, missing an eye, checking out a girl at a bar may well be perceived as creepy whether he intended to or not. This app is creepy whether the devs intended it to be or not. You may want to consider supporting your premises with evidence in the future, as you may find holes in your logic before they get published!

My fear is you have this completely wrong - at least with law enforcement (in this country) we have some chance of eventually uncovering government abuse - and there are private orgs established to track this abuse. The Black Helicopters are there -- but at least we know they are there.

Contrast that against millions of free-agent abusers -- the thought is staggering. We've taken our eye off the real ball -- the fact that we are posting our lives onto a medium that is inherently not private, there for the millions to see. If this doesnt scare you, nothing will.
