Rob Hamilton: A privacy issue

A privacy issue

After more than a decade of being an active part of The N&O online community, I am deeply and profoundly disappointed by your decision to restrict online commenting to people with Facebook accounts. You have essentially banned me and my entire family from participating because the way Facebook plays fast and loose with personal information makes the NSA look like butter-fingered amateurs.

McClatchy may think that privacy is an out-moded luxury, but I can assure you many of us do not.
