Thanks for that, Mendalla, as you are connecting the dots for me of how we got from latest trend to war implement.
However, it doesn't seem like anything new. I try. as a high school teacher, to teach awareness about social media.
The students get lots of teaching about cyberstalking and...
I have to admit that I don't understand the politics about this at all.

I am only relating how I felt, Chemgal.
It may have been their intent to care and it may have been their intent to protect.
But the impact of singling me out made me feel like an alien. The impact of passing me a clipboard and asking me to write my name (when there were no other names on it)...
For sure, revsdd, their intentions were good. And this pandemic situation is new to all of us, and like any new situation, it's trial and error.
