A picture, that has no good associated data about the user, is a real threat? Heaven forbid Russia figures out how to take pictures in public places





> A picture, that has no good associated data about the user

A picture is a username... Are you trying to say that your face isn't personal identifying identification (PII)? I'm not sure what your argument is here, because it can't be that. That argument would be absurd, so I'm sure I am misunderstanding.


If you read the (very brief) brief, it specifically mentions this mostly in regard to US politicians and public figures

Isn't the picture associated with a specific user? Even if the association wasn't 100% reliable that could still be a threat.
