Internet & Networking "Starting today, users in the United States and UK will be able to add that they're organ donors to their Timelines, and if they're not organ donors, they can find links to official organ donation registries and instantly enroll." A commendable effort, but for some reason, I find it quite creepy, too. What if you leave your Facebook open and someone enlists you? On a related note - if you're not registered as a donor yet, please consider doing so. It might save someone's life.

Not when ethics, responsibility and accountability are at an all time low, at least at the sea planted corner of earth where I live now. Not when people are not even remotely aware of such opt-out scheme and are not informed that you have to opt-out of it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against being an organ donor but this opt-out thing feels very similar to a scam where someone is trying to catch you of guard.

If it was some facebook, microsoft or google opt-out scheme everyone would be screaming foul, but this, no one seems to care, as if overlooking, malpractice and mistakes don't happen.
