Somehow they must justify the money that they take.
Techspot mods do not approve of the party van.
This is just terrible. I'm glad i don't live in nazi country like usa. Internet is so far the last place you can exercise your freedom to say whatever you want, watch whatever you like and make it as private and as personal as you like. And seriously who ever heard about terrorists? Who ever seen one besides movies? This is retarded!
As opposed to what?
Let's look at your other options, shall we?
That document pretty much sums up a least one aspect of most experienced computer users, and I can really see the FBI being so pre-occupied because of this initiative that they stop focusing on more series issues.
I mean come on, they're describing most computer users! :haha:
Does this mean Techspot is going to be shut down some time in the next week for harbouring so many terrorists?
Who thought one day all geeks and people living in basements with the fear of outer world would be called terrorists.
When you steal freedom from the people, you only create more "criminals." Thus, this whole ideology of tightening the fist is completely counter-intuitive.
This is also one reason why I will not be having children now or ever.
20th century version:
If you have blinds on your windows you may be a terrorist.
If you have tinted windows in your car you may be a terrorist.
If you wear a hat and sun glasses at the same time you may be a terrorist.
I'm glad you don't live in the USA either. We have enough space cadets with no knowledge of even the most basic laws and governmental systems.
Ya - you must be one of those great thinkers from the FBI eh?
I thought about getting another phone in my name and giving this one to young family member now I am actually a little scared to do so and that pisses me off.
Yes, and as an FBI agent I can officially tell you that the sky is falling and you are all on the cyber police watchlist. Prepare your asses, we have a hundred thousand agents prepping to come down on all of you, 1984-style.
New line of jokes in the wake of "you might be a redneck if.." coming up.
"...you don't have an internet connection to tell bad jokes with"
That's the point - everyone's a potential threat.
With the way things are set up, we're all breaking some law and they just need more money and time and they'll have us all rounded up.
Oh, and don't worry, I'm behind seven proxies!
Wear disguise - check
Travel to net cafe in another state - check
Pay for time in cash - check
Fire up proxies - check
Hack into DoD mainframe - check
Download pr0n - check FTW!
Real terrorists don't live in America, and real Americans aren't terrorists. This isn't some dictatorship or communist country, every American has the right to privacy, on the internet and in reality.
Clearly a document based on the "if you have nothing to hide, you wouldn't worry about keeping things private" school of thought.
so , all u saying is that all american authorities are retarded, isnt it ?
oh i hope to be alive the see the fall !!!
Terrorists communicating through xbox live...
The problem with this is you have to believe the fbi etc aren't corrupt and enforce the law in a morally acceptable manor rather than doing whatever the hell they want in the name of "security".
Because empires in decline always turn on their own citizens before the fall.
Still, I would much rather live in the US than anywhere else, mostly because we have the 2nd Amendment.
Owning more than 2 cellphones - guilty as charged. Having more prepaid SIM cards than I actually use - also guilty as charged. Sorry, couldn't resist the bargain prices of those Chinese-made cellphones. By the way, are they going to include "posting on Techspot" ? I might have to post as "Guest" next time .
I'm a terrorist !?
