Are these people surveyed who are okay with software backdoors the same group of people that failed to pass that easy as hell science quiz linked to in today's Out of the Blue? I know correlation does not imply causation but...well you know.

Fixed that.

That, or didn't understand the question, or were all 60 years old or older, etc.

All surveys are bullshit.

From the article: "the risk is justified," no doubt the question was something along the lines of, "in order to catch terrorists, would you allow The Authorities to gather some data from the internet?"

Between the "Backdoors" and Ashley Madison links there is a joke there...but I will leave it alone...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Best Post of the day so far ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hackers are creative and tenacious enough as it is, so leaving a backdoor couldn't be more ludicrous!

That article is clickbait bullshit. The original article clearly states that 91% of Americans are concerned about the risks associated with backdoors, not that they're OK with it. And even this original poll is bullshit because it was just a local poll on a small website.

Great video Blue! Thanks for linking it!

Yeah, I just skimmed that but it's really shocking. I mean we've known for a long time now that Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook etc. are evil but that's breathtaking the scope of what they're doing for 24/7 surveillance. And Microsoft is now the kind of the evil empire with their new hardware and software going forward. Yeah, time to jump ship and making some other meaningful choices.

91 percent don't have any real understanding of cryptography or the consequences of back doors like these? Shocking!!

If you take those same 91% of the surveyed and explain to them that when those backdoors are found by the "bad" guys they will be put into a very costly and lengthy process to attempt to recover (if it is even possible) their identity and destroyed credit rating, they will change their minds.

Just because you trust the government or anyone in general enough to give them a spare key to your house, does not mean they won't lose it or someone might not steal that from them. Just look at how lax people are, news crew visits and shows username/password in the background here and here. How about the OPM hack? That is a government computer system used to run background checks on government employees. If they can't keep that secure think at how much effort they will put into normal people's security.

Anyone believing that allowing backdoors into software can help keep themselves safe from anything is an absolute idiot. All it will do is create a single point of failure, and when it fails, all you will get is a bunch of politicians pandering on TV about trying to find someone to blame, having possibly millions of people's lives destroyed, and not coming up with the simple solution that "having a backdoor put into any software on purpose for any 'righteous' cause is idiocy."
