When I use an online service, I use it knowing that the rules will change someday. I can see what you're getting at though and that's also pretty important.

Are there any alternatives you suggest?

if you want to be in control of your own email, buy a hosting package and get an email with your own domain name on it. its not expensive and you have total control of everything...

Google is paying for the tattoos of people who get their unique google user number tattooed on the back of their hand. I got mine because it makes using Google a lot easier

that's kind of what I mean actually.

is it really worth opting out of every public internet thing ever and also probably most/all private internet things in order to avoid being spied on by whatever company or organization? I would be down with having more privacy, but is attacking the issue on an individual level really worthwhile for the average consumer? and, if not, what else can we do?

I don't know how to answer these questions, which demotivates me, which leads to me not caring.

it is, to a degree. Protecting yourself is always a good thing because otherwise you're relying on assholes who can't do their jobs properly. You never know when or where there will be a security leak.

There's only a certain amount of stuff you can do about it. Worry about anything past that is pretty much akin to worrying about getting struck by lightning really.
