    I think it's safe to say that they have a pretty large folder of information on anyone who posts on political message boards.

    We're probably not doing ourselves any favors by commenting on this here.

    I think it's a bit late to be concerned about visibility.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Sound familiar? That's what great about internal audits.

    Uhhh...of course it does? It's called accidental collection. When someone really tries to spy on someone from their personal life, they get fired and sometimes jailed. I don't understand what the issue is. Are you scared or something?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    It's called my privacy, and I likes it. That aside, the Federal government is unforgiving in its prosecution of individual mistakes, I fail to see why they should be held to a different standard.

    Why do you think the people that make those mistakes aren't fired or even do jail time?

    Because the program itself keeps making the news, but there is no word of firings or criminal charges.

    Aside from that, there likely won't be because then the government would need to admit that serious wrong was done in order to fire or file -- and their whole approach has been to downplay what happened below the level of actual wrongdoing.
