    Not too busy for post 77 apparently: priorities, Chuck, priorities.
    Poorly worded and punctuated.

    A demonstration of the use of a false dichotomy when logic fails.

    Would you prefer death or indenity theft? It would seem if you can prevent both, a rational person would do both. Perhaps you have alternative logic for which I am not aware.

    Thanks for demonstrating that your Post 82 is a false "either/or" statement. People can actually think about, and learn about, more than one thing at a time.

    The world is full of people who have nothing, immigrants, homeless, poor elderly, and those who will spend there last days in nursing homes or assisted living facilties. If someone stole their identiy, they wouldn't get anything.

    Chuck, after saying there are people without identities you provided identities. We may be poor, elderly, immigrants, homeless, nursing home patients, or assisted living residents but we all have identities.

    Looking past your contrarianism you will see how how all these people, and you and I, are effected. Do you know how the theft of patient information, including social security numbers, allows for the creation of false identities, leading to financial fraud and false prescriptions? Care facilities are hacked and then held for ransom to restore the data? Hacking medical records can lead to fines for HIPAA violations in the millions of dollars, along with the time and expense trying to respond. And the money to pay the fines comes from increased costs of health care and insurance premiums.

    Hacking, identity theft, ransomware have gone beyond cute little nerdy activities.

    I assumed you were speaking of legal identities, like SS numbers and back accounts.

    If you have Medicaid, health insurance, and have ever worked you most likely have a social security number.
