They already tell users, that these voice recognition systems listen to every word. Welcome to Arthur Blair’s world, 1984. You don’t believe all is recorded by these entities? I would expect WP does it too, with all blogs and comments saved? Cheers Jamie. dyane November 1, 2016 at 12:00 pm - Reply Absolutely loved this post, Kitt. I relate to it on a deep level. I loathe DM’s, I despise the phone, I’ve been told I’m “too much”/”too intense”/”a spaz” (ugh) and, drum roll please….the evil, evil “M” word: “too MANIC” (even when I was a far cry from it!) After getting to know you over the past couple years, my gut tells me you are NOT a “narcissist” (I can never spell that damn word) – our children don’t know it all, although I know your son is exceptionally brilliant. (I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you shared that with your readers.) It’s incredibly brave to paint oneself in a less-than-flattering light online, and it’s not only endearing; many of us readers connect with that situation and with similar ones as well and feel less alone. Thank you so much for writing this piece! p.s. I like texts only – no phone calls or direct messages unless it’s urgent Kitt O'Malley November 1, 2016 at 12:41 pm - Reply Hopefully I’ll remember your preference for texts. My son was giving me a hard time for not being compassionate to his pain. He was joking (I think). dyane November 1, 2016 at 12:44 pm - Reply Someone once told me “There’s truth in jest” but I really don’t like that proverb! I love textx because I don’t have to “fake” it, you know what I mean? Impersonal? Maybe, but hey, it’s better than nothing, LOL!!! And I try to jazz things up with those cutesy emojis. 😜 Kitt O'Malley November 1, 2016 at 12:47 pm - Reply You can take your time responding, too. Join the conversation. Leave a comment.
