» Bad messaging

Here’s a cynical take on this. Clearly in this era of NSA revelations this is a terrible message to be sending to users of their service. It is, however, a great message to be sending to big data companies that might be looking to acquire you. “WE’RE WILLING TO SCRAPE EVERYTHING, COME GET US!”

I don’t know, maybe it’s just tone deafness. But maybe it’s just a message that’s not for you, the Dropbox user.
