EA wants to know my Political and Religious Views

Mr.Fork writes "Every once in a while I take a look ay my Facebook app security settings to see what information is being collected. Mostly, it's the usual info — who my friends are, a little info about me, but it's all within the norms. Then I take a look at Origin and SCRABBEL — both owned by Electronic Arts. Last info grab they took my religious AND political views — both not mentioned in their privacy policy (I checked). So what do I do? I plan to file a privacy complaint via the regular government channels, but really EA? You need my fracking Religious AND Political views? Wow. Just wow. So I took a picture and tweeted it to them. Of course they haven't responded now that they got their hand caught in the cookie private info jar."

Nobody cares about your 'private' religious and/or political views.

It's just statistics.

If you look for the religious and political views of EA's owners, your likely to find they are right-wing fascists, just getting a leg up on which heads they plan to crack.
