    In terms of the personal security of your data, her appointment does nothing to jeopardize that. Either it's already been jeopardized or it will be regardless of her appointment.

    Her appointment to the Board should be based on her credentials. Clearly she was seen as qualified and a worthy candidate by the current Board of Directors, so I have no issue there.

    She's only a Board Member, too. It's not like she's directly handling day to day operations. Boards can take a variety of different roles, but in every case the main role is always an advisory one.

    You should get rid of Dropbox if it is not offering the service that meets your needs. I'll keep on enjoying my free 26 GB of storage with my personal Dropbox account until a better option comes around.

    I'll be honest, I don't store anything on Dropbox that I'd be afraid of the NSA seeing.

    No, i'm not going to leave Dropbox.

    I don't see how Dr. Rice's presence on the Board effects security one way or the other...and that's all that's important to me.

    I care more about their IT folks than their Board.

    Most people don't have a clue how corrupt the government is so why would they stop using dropbox when a former corrupt member joins a tech firm's board?

    Security doesn't exist anyway. The tech we use is about 10 years (or more) behind. Your desktop files are just as easily accessible as anything in the cloud.

    Please source the assertion that Dr. Rice was corrupt member of government.

    Most definitely not. If anyone is interested in my university papers, lecture notes and the odd shared photo, I say go nuts.

    Rice did everything she could do build congressional support for the war in Iraq which of course there were no WMD's. If you need to see evidence for that, then you've been living under a rock for the past decade and debating anything with you would be a waste of time. Carry on :)

    I need to see evidence when an assertion of fact is made on PRSI. Just saying that it is self evident doesn't do it.

    You're right that debating with me, or anyone, is a waste of time if the debate does not contain supported assertions. (BTW: I never debate on PRSI...total waste of time, IMO).

    So now that we have established that I am a troglodyte, perhaps we can abjure ad hominem argument and you can source your assertion.:):)

    No. Who's stupid enough to put sensitive information on there anyway.

    Of course I'll continue to use Dropbox for both personal and business use.

    I think it's a good product.

    It's nice to see people who would otherwise whine about NSA spying entrust the former National Security Advisor with all their personal data.

    I'll continue to use it. Her appointment doesn't matter one iota to me. If they want to break in and check out my files, maybe they'll show up to my place of work and get something done for me.

    Unless you're plotting to overthrow the government or a terrorist attack, the NSA couldn't care less about your meager existence.

    I'll make sure to work all the keywords their programs are looking for into every document.

    Nope, but then again I only use it to automatically backup my phone pictures like iCloud does for iOS.

    Do you really think that Dr. Rice, or any member of the Dropbox BOD, will have any access to all that personal data?

    If so, then you must also believe that Al Gore is privy to all your personal data contained in your Apple products.

    I would suspect the security of all documents stored online in a service such as DB or GD.

    Personally I don't care who they add to their board because I don't store any personal information in the cloud.
