    The examples of bad design you give are too small to have impact for change. How do these designs impact the individual in a way that impedes them?

    I will agree that AirBnb puts irrational fear into users like many hotel booking websites. Don't get me started on linkedin, they are underhanded.

    When we make small changes to the design that impact the user in a big way, it's because its a action they constantly engage in. The facebook example helps users from making a rare, and possibly rash decision too quickly. They could be destroying years of accumulated personal data. Etsy's just humorous. I don't think the facebook and etsy example should be included as crimes against humanity.
