From the May issue of PC World magazine-

"According to intelligence experts in the United States and Europe, a massive electronic intercept program called Project Echelon scans all Internet traffic, cell phone conversations, faxes, and long distance telephone calls - virtually every type of electronic communication - looking for evidence of terrorist activity, military threats, and transportational crime."

The article goes on to say that all this is done through the use of an incredible computerized system, with actual people only seeing "stuff" when it passes a wide barrage of filters.

Big Brother strikes again. How does that make you feel?

LOL -- well, in light of the fact that I am the sort of person who has no problem screaming just about anything that happens to be on my mind, P.C. or not, at the top of my lungs on any given street corner, this bugs me not at all.  Let there be filters -- maybe I'll come out looking like a decent human being with a sense of tact when they're through with me!  LMAO

It is only a test ...

even porn sites? just curious not that I....it is not illegal to download porn is it..I mean...LOL anyway, well that is something we know about what about what we don't know about. MAybe the party has other ways of watching us that we are not aware of.
But Big Brother has always been there in some form or other. It is the price to pay for being part of our society. If you want privacy do a Sallinager. I am not saying that spying on the public is right I guess we just have to have sure that we are not caught with our pants down so to speak.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
