    1st Amendment?

    What does any of this have to do with the first amendment?

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    CPAP "spying"

    It's not secret. I've known about this since I got my machine. Maybe it's just people who don't use CPAP who are surprised?

    I assume the point is to make sure that no one is signing up fake users in order to bill insurance companies for supplies that are never used.

    I find moral panics over privacy to be baffling, so the fact that my CPAP machine reports my sleep habits doesn't bother me at all. I have some vague hope that there is someone looking at the data who would notice a problem and notify me about it, and otherwise I don't care.
