I guess it's all about security versus convenience. So long as your
passphrase contains enough entropy, is strong, and secure, then I don't see
the big deal.

With that said, I don't see the need either. You have the tools and
hardware available to you, at very cheap prices, to build your own cloud
storage on your own private network. We've had this for years. So why trust
some 3rd party to do it for you? Why risk, even a miniscule amount of
privacy when you don't have to?

Just my $0.02.
