In all fairness, post count has little bearing. What I know about blackberrys I mostly learned from this forum or because of it, and not a few times I've learned from new members with few posts. This is about basic thought process.

The OP begins

Over the past few days I have been researching the security and privacy of my BlackBerry (Bold 9700) with the intention of improving it. ...
but doesn't know what content protection is or any of the stock security features. And when someone points out the questions the OP should answer first, the OP argues and complains. And threatens to put others on ignore.

Still, I would like to know what the OP specifically wants to protect against.

As I think about it, I wonder if the OP's question, inarticulatly asked, is what should the OP be worried about, and how to plug the hole? I could be wrong. And that still leaves the question of whether we are talking about online security, communications security, data security ... What?

Still, it's a curious thing when someone asks an open ended question and the fights anyone who points out the need to define the problem. That's a particular category of member, those that won't take advice on what their questions should really be, and argue with anyone who challenges the premise. Just a funny thing to me.

While I do mixed feelings over where this thread has gone.. I think the main security features have been covered..

There really isn't much else to say unless the OP declares what he means as "privacy". (the data on the phone/phone calls/etc)
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.

It sounds to me like the OP needs to do some reading and a little research on his own. The answers to many of his questions are easily available without asking someone to spoon feed it to him. It's ok to ask questions but no need to attack the experienced users here who have a wealth of knowledge and experience.

My other advice is to drop the attitude and pay attention instead of badmouthing those who are trying to help.
