Poll question: What Is Your Preferred Method Of Non-Monitored Communications?
Edited on Wed Jun-21-06 09:42 AM by DistressedAmerican
At the risk of "revealing sources and methods"... :rofl:

Just wondering since "The Man" is all over our phone records and everything we send in e-mail. I think it may be time to outsmart them by going old school!

What do you think? Best method to get around all this Big Brotherism?





(NOTE: This Poll Is Being Monitored. So, say hi to Agent Mike! :hi:)

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Pretty Sad When You Are Reduced To Gallows Humor About
being able to hold a simple private conversation in the United States Of America!

And wingers rally behind this shit in droves!

Maybe we should bring the soldiers that are defending our freedom in Iraq back here to deal with this internal threat!

14. Well, it's certainly more secure
The highest that's ever been cracked (that we know about) is 576 bits. Every bit doubles the complexity of the key-breaking operation. So, unless the NSA has a computing cluster 7.2 x 10^134 times more powerful than the machines used to break the 576 bit key, and are willing to dedicate it to breaking my keys for a solid three months, they're not going to get to read my conversations with my family about how much I hate my job or asking my girlfriend what she had for dinner.

It's the principle of the thing. :D

15. "The Dome Of Silence"
That one got my vote just for the smile ;)

I haven't thought about that show in ages, though I knew a guy when I was a kid who claimed to be Don Adams nephew.

I love that show.

Thanks for the link.

As an aside, can you imagine using that thing after your partner just had a fish sandwich smothered in garlic butter?
