    so they're making ... made.. changes, 2 rewrites from the sound of it. One allowing near free access and another only with judicial permission (warrant). What are your thoughts? … re-2012-11

      I think its a crack in the door and if we don't stand up against it then sooner or later we will no longer have privacy at all.  Right now, this would apply to those that use cloud based sources, such as yahoo mail, gmail, hotmail, etc...  if you use your own email client and store your data on your own hard disk then there shouldn't be any issues. Storing data on your own hard disk would require a warrant. 

      Using language that states something like 'law abiding citizens have nothing to worry about' is just a door opener... it lets us believe that only the bad guys privacy will be invaded... for the most part I'm sure that is true but it allows multiple government agencies to go on a fishing expedition and dig through your private conversations without cause or warrant.

      Thank you Dame Scribe. Perplexed a little while thinking of Wired Magazine's article regarding the NSA and stuff like that I ponder. Yet,what comes to mind with a bit of jest is why is it always referred to as Big Brother. Kinda' sexist isn't that? I'm odd at times knowing that means not even, while knowing the keel actually is. Satellites come to mind while pondering do waves have sovereignty and what of those ISP's anyway? If advertisers have access for who knows what, pondering why shouldn't law enforcement too? Just asking. I mean those pop ups are tailored aren't they? On the grand scheme of things, well never mind, a bit sensitive to post. Use your ESP and empathic skills and maybe astral projection too for future communication. Lucid dreaming does have enter-taiment value, yet produces some cool stuff too. Works for me - smile

    ESP and astral projection lol be awesome if we could do that. I agree GMW, smile I don't think it should be a 'OPEN' door for law enforcement. Look at what they did to that one gal who worked in same career, her co-workers all went 'snooping' at her files yikes law enforcement has a history of 'wacky' working amidst their crew. Letting one loose amongst the peoples would not be good hmm js

      Hello Dame Scribe, still with jest-or, a conjunction? Maybe the challenge is 'we' considering that. Yet, on the serious side, do look into that article recommended. I'll puff my cigarette a tad, seems gnats are here and there at times. That article recommended is noted, yet not alarming, as yet. The local or even neighborhood authorities, law or otherwise, may just be more of a threat regarding security and privacy at the home level of thought by most. The workplace too, since by law the employer has the right to search more than is known to most employee's, cyberspace and all that. Although odd it seems even, as paranoia spreads from employer to employee to consumer to, oh well, whoops, no more business. Sadly, wondering why comes to mind.

      My dad use to always say, "Your freedom ends where my nose begins." Ponder Pinocchio while giving pause he was a puppet. Then a drift of thought upon that movie 'Bicentennial Man.' Seems the central character served and served and served some more while seeking only one thing. The reward of service did arrive, yet If I remember right

    I know it's not in stone yet wink they are just 2 versions. I prefer the 2nd version. I think she has the right idea, there's got to be dang good reason and not just, 'based on suspicion' but as the author of the article said, her version may not see the light of day sad got to really wonder about the 'mental' health behind the author of the one they DO want to push through though hmm
