1. Echelon ...

You're probably thinking of Echelon. I don't know the thread of which you speak, so I'm guessing that's the topic.

E-mail is not being "routed" through a government site. Echelon, however, allows the NSA and other intelligence agencies to intercept e-mail and other communications by targeting specific frequencies or ranges of frequencies used to broadcast these communications. The intercepts are run through a filtering system looking for key words and phrases that might indicate whatever the group looking deems suspicious activity. Naturally this can be put to subversive purposes
