CEO TRUSTe: no major steps needed to protect online privacy PCW | Jun 19, 2012
The U.S. Congress doesn't need to take major steps to protect the privacy of Web and mobile users, because self-policing efforts are generally working, the CEO of TRUSTe told lawmakers on Tuesday.
Efforts by online companies to regulate privacy practices themselves has worked "effectively," Chris Babel, TRUSTe's CEO, told members of the Internet subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee. "You've seen self regulation accelerate quite rapidly in the last few years," Babel said.

I wonder what parallel universe Babel has been living in? Or perhaps the meaning of his words has been confounded by some past event involving human language and a certain Tower... especially his use of the word "effectively". In my dictionary: effective - adj - producing a decided, decisive, or desired effect. And judging by effects, industry's self-policing has been decidedly, decisively ineffective in increasing user privacy.
On the other hand, if penetrating user privacy is the real object, then perhaps the online world's self-policing has been 'effective'. Either way, this guy doesn't speak the same language I do...
