I am so FUCKING glad my words here are not going into a gigantic filter that someone will use
to determine whether or not I'm a threat to national security.

Wait... Are my words being filtered as I type them?

Of course not!

That kind of surveillance stopped on 1/20, right? Right!

1. I love Anthrax!
Man Anthrax is so great. Potters Field was a great album.

2. Reading a public forum is hardly 'surveillance'
Unless you regard Google and dozens of other search engines as surveillance outfits.

3. what the NSA is alleged to be doing is most definitely illegal surveillance
Cataloging personal, private telephone and internet traffic, and cross-indexing it with various other kinds of information such as credit card transactions, magazine subscriptions, etc., of every American citizen, with a special focus on journalists. If true, it is very serious business indeed.

4. Exactly - private traffic is very different from a forum *designed* to be available to everyone
Our words on DU are meant to be available to all, including all governments in the world. People here actually say "hey - it looks like someone is listening!" when something good happens.

7. I literally agree with you
But among the implications are that what you write on an "anonymous" message board can be held against you. That the O T B are in charge of dossiers.

What me worry?
