    The poll results are outrageous. No way there's that many morons on this site.

    Hence why I mentioned a tipping point. Again, I recommend a course in reading comprehension.

    Actually you might be right. The "yes" is 147 but only lists two members, the "no" is down at 24 but has a long list of members. I think perhaps you are right. Anyone on the lists feel their vote is in the wrong place?

    I'm not in the business of protecting you from snark. Grow a pair, and take a reading comprehension course.

If it's okay for ad agencies and google to be tracking what I do and type on a public forum, then it's okay for the government. Actually google et al probably have waaayyyy more personal information due to general browsing and computer identification than anyone could get of DP even with a warrant.
    Well said.

    Anyone who has a problem with it should not be posting on public forums.

    Just a little quibble here. Since they (the hysterians) are all so certain it is being monitored, I think their poutrage is insincere because otherwise they'd not be posting at all, much less some of what they do post.

    Take a sensitivity training course and stop acting like a bitch. You don't value your civil liberty, you have good company from the rest of the scared Americans.

    And who said they think it's being monitored, hmm? Need a little comprehension course. The op asks whether or not we think it should be monitored by the government. For those that value their constitutional liberties, of course not. For the shivering scared rest, well, apparently.
