Can someone explain why privacy is such a huge issue? I'm an open book. I have nothing to hide.

I also don't care if Karma discusses me with other partners, as long as he fills me in on what was said.
I feel like I have nothing to hide so why should it be an issue?
Random person reading my mail-okay that's an issue. But not those I love and care about.
I am hoping someone can explain it to me. I feel that if someone has an issue with privacy then they have something to hide.
May not be the case, but I have no experience outside of that...which is why I am asking. I want to understand the otherside of it.
Yeah, this is exactly how I feel. I don't lock my phone at home so my wife can go into it anytime she wants. I don't not lock it for that reason, and it isn't because she requests that I do this either. I just don't have anything to hide from her so why would I care if she picks up my phone and starts reading texts, not that she does, but she could. She also knows the passwords to all my online accounts, from web sites to email.
I talk to her about everything so what difference does it make if she reads it for herself. If she decides to go poking around and gets more detail than she wanted, well, that's her problem I figure. I don't lie to her, I don't purposely withhold information, and I don't conduct myself in a manner that I would be reluctant to discuss with anyone. Granted, I wouldn't leave my email or phone open at work, but that's another unrelated issue to me.
I'd really rather spare the preliminary announcements and get into the discussion anyhow. LOL! ...Hmmm.. Maybe I should look into creating an app and/or program that forwards all my electronic correspondence to a common area. "Sorry! It totally slipped my mind! Have you been keeping up on the 'common' files? It's all in there." Heh.
