jimb, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not but I'm assuming you're not.
Whenever someone pulls out the 'nothing to hide' argument it instantly tells me that person doesn't understand what privacy actually means.
Privacy does not mean that people have the right to do bad things in secret and not get caught.
Privacy is a right. It means you have the right to speak your mind without being identified. It means you are allowed to close the curtains when you're home so no one can see inside. It's having a door on your bathroom.
None of these things I mentioned are illegal or even borderline, and they all involve privacy.
Simply assuming privacy is equivalent to 'I get to do bad things in private' is a shallow viewpoint.
