Why are people up in arms about Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc collecting your data but services such as these get a free pass? I don't see the difference.

And to answer your question - I'm am the guy who warns others, at those parties you mention, about using those services. And my stance is, use them if you want. Just understand you own nothing, and when they go away, you'll have nothing to show for whatever money you spent with them.

[Edit]

Then those people roll their eyes and walk away.

Then later they come back to me asking to explain why things like this happen.
