Privacy Obfuscation at the WSJ

The WSJ updated their privacy policy, I read it and read it again and then one more time before admitting defeat… I have no idea what their privacy policy is now.

Why can’t companies express privacy policies in plain and simple language that says what they will do and what they won’t do? When it comes to contextual terms like “personally identifiable information” they should spell out what that is.

There’s a much better discussion of this privacy policy on Google+ in response to a post Dan Gillmor put up (which shows the potential for threaded conversations in G+ btw).
