    Well, that's the threat to you and me. But that's no threat to the establishment, it rather serves their ends.

    Anything beyond casual examination, like use of computer programs to parse out trends and patterns, should require a warrant. A casual encounter with police is fine, but longterm surveillance requires a warrant.

    Its not only you and me, its a threat to the general masses. And actually, it is somewhat of a threat to the establishment because they need some protection from each other.

    Let's see you stop them.

    If you and I can monitor the internet, why can't they?

    Fill us in.

    That is true. But don't you think they are wasting their time if they are monitoring a site like this?

    Why would they need a warrant to monitor what's freely available to everyone on this planet?

    No I don't. I've seen some comments on this forum that should be looked into.

    Really? I haven't, but then again, I haven't been posting here that long, nor do I go to some portions of the site. From what I have seen, it is a waste of time.

    Obviously there are lots of other forums on the internet where the government might find more threats.
