Lol, its literally public information. Seems 1% sent some payments to trolls so they can "defend" them. Poor rich people
I see. So "rich" people - no matter how they made their fortune - are open season for every predator simply because they're wealthy.

That's brilliant.

Where did I say that? How are they open for every predator? You gonna cry about phone GPS next? You know planes were tracked since forever? It was always publicly available. Please stop writing nonsense.

"Poor rich people." Your words. You're defending the practice of tracking people - especially wealthy people - and making it available for public consumption.

Back step all you want, but you made the statement.

Wait 'till they start to track him as well. Track where he goes, what he is doing, and who he is hanging out with ... etc ... and make it available for public views as well.

I don't think anyone cares where eTheBlack takes his Honda Civic.

Whats wrong with you? Thats not tracking people, its tracking planes. It is available for public? You have no idea whats going on, do you.

What backstep? You are bad troll lol.

Your other 2nd reply, below your comment is funny. Thinking phone doesnt track you, but plane is a big no no, omegalul. Not mentioning Google and all of them already have all the info you think Im afraid off lol

Cant wait till you find boats and all them yachts are also publicly tracked

This should absolutely be illegal.

How would you feel if someone was posting your car's whereabouts?

That puts you at risk for several dozen crimes.

My Verdict: 1st offense: Warning. 2nd offense: Lock him up and make an example.
So, it that true... For how many years should Zukenborg be locked for tracking every move of billion people?

The Second Amendment is crystal clear about this; my right to own Stinger missiles shall not be infringed. It's for self-defense.

Sadly, I'm currently held back by some people (these are not real Americans). But now that we have a sane Supreme Court I trust supply will soon be secured.
Not sure what the Second has to do with this article, but, your sarcasm aside, the Founders were pretty clear. Note that they did not say, you have the right to keep and bear arms, with the exception of big nasty cannons or anything like that. In fact, the Continental Congress and later the US President issued letters of marque to private citizens who had armed ships to go out and attack vessels of any countries we were at war with.

As for the Supreme Court, they have made their position pretty clear.

And I guess you also think that the County you live in listing your homes value and the taxes paid on it are 'illegal' as well? Sorry BOTH what the guy does AND what your county posts about you and my county posts about me are legal according to several Federal Court Cases!! Same thing with people making over $50k annually paid out of taxpayer money is sent to the local newspapers every year thru a FOIA request.

Compared to paparazzi's and the cheap tabloids with their billion dollar media industries - this is chicken feed .
Who killed Bambi - whoops Lady Di - ignoring drunk driver, no seat belts and speeding that just leaves the Paparazzi - that aside taking pictures from roadside with 800mm lenses with extenders is ok in some countries

800mm is childs play for some of them, think telescope lenses for the stuff Companies really want hidden like new car models or people coming and going for possible deals etc.

Someone is posting your car's whereabouts, the phone company, and in many cases, the car itself. As for those that actually care where he is, they remind me of the "dead heads", who dutifully followed the Grateful Dead around, come rain or shine.

Life in the public eye does carry with it inherent risk, just ask John Lennon about that. But he, Zuck, or whomever, wanted desperately wanted to be there, despite the risk of possibly dying because of it. I suggest they deal with it. Perhaps via private security assistance.

As for Zuckie, why should his privacy be sacrosanct? Facebook (sorry "Meta"), posts the most intimate details, of a person's personal life for profit.-

And now a personal question/. Why do you post crap like the above captioned post? Is it because you desperately want to be in the public eye? Is It just sarcasm and you're trying to get a rise? Or, is it in the fantasy of your belief system?

So, if you see Zuckerberg's plane fly over, remember, that's your personal information at work.

FWIW:
A Gulfstream G650ER costs approximately $70.1 million dollars in 2019. In terms of operating costs, variable costs will average at around $3,662 per hour (assuming fuel prices of $4.17 per gallon).

FWIW: With a DX sensor (APS-C I think), an 800 mm tele functions as a 1200 mm would on a full frame camera on a Nikon body, and 1280 mm on a Canon body. That's well past the possibility of hand holding it. You should be able to come close to taking a full frame shot of the moon with that lens. So for many purposes, consider it a telescope.

I've read, (no personal experience), that astronomers use relatively low power eye pieces, (15x ?), when sweeping for comets.

Sports photographers generally use between 300 mm to 400 mm F 2.8 lenses. They're very fast, and staggeringly expensive.

Not that I need to argue with "you"...but the fact is that you just made a false equivalency.
