dracken (246) First time I'm the first to reply :) But yeah, I'm pretty sure the government is tracking data, I'm not sure anyone looks at it, but why wouldn't they track it? It's pretty easy to find and store...

turboshaft (24) I am sure they are already reading my e-mails so why not all my "web travels" as well? The only problem is I am a pretty boring guy online (and in real life...) and they're just wasting their time. Oh fuck it, keep up the good work FBI, CIA, NSA, or whoever are spending their time, money--ours, by the way--and manpower finding out how perverted its own citizens really are.

If these James Bond super spy wannabe assholes wish to catch real criminals I suggest they stop reading citizens' browser histories and start doing real intelligence work.

lk2fireone (196) Break the law and your new 'friend' may be the FBI

Tue Mar 16, 3:25 am ET

WASHINGTON The Feds are on Facebook. And MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter, too.

U.S. law enforcement agents are following the rest of the Internet world into popular social-networking services, going undercover with false online profiles to communicate with suspects and gather private information, according to an internal Justice Department document that offers a tantalizing glimpse of issues related to privacy and crime-fighting.

Think you know who's behind that "friend" request? Think again. Your new "friend" just might be the FBI.

The document, obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, makes clear that U.S. agents are already logging on surreptitiously to exchange messages with suspects, identify a target's friends or relatives and browse private information such as postings, personal photographs and video clips.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based civil liberties group, obtained the Justice Department document when it sued the agency and five others in federal court. The 33-page document underscores the importance of social networking sites to U.S. authorities. The foundation said it would publish the document on its Web site on Tuesday.

Denner (235) Not sure - but of course most governments (especially the Chinese and probably the US) are using a hell of a lot of taxpayers money on manpower here... and most completely wasted.
99 % of all web travels are totally legit, I believe - and how can they focus on billions of web activity every day - maybe they still just go for those dangerous words where the alarm goes off at NSA and others.

But for us: tracking legit porn-search? - if so: a lot of politicians will be tracked too - and honestly: I do not give a damn if they track me downloading a clip with Eve Angel or Jana Cova or what ever...

But remember: We voted them in - we can vote them OUT again..

BTW: A good poll which is worth to follow up on. Let's not forget '1984' (George Orwell) or 'Fahrenheit 451'.

Jay G (67) Like the Lost Arc in Raiders of the Lost Arc, in the end the government acquires way too much information and its mostly lost in huge storage. That means they can come and get you anytime if you are speaking up against the government or piss an official off, but they aren't stupid enough to try and put 50% of the population in jail.

Like any church inquisition, the acquiring of information is just to be able to put a few heretics to the fire to scare others from speaking up. But if you read history, it's never been different.

messmer (137) I believe they are stored and tracked by my ISP and probably would be available to my government if they had their suspicions about my activities.

RagingBuddhist (65) A bit of a story for this one.

Last month, I took my first flight in years. While going through security, I was pulled out of line to "do the hokey pokey", meaning I got a full-body scan. Talking to a few friends about it, the only thing we could come up with was that I've sent emails to politicians, up to and including the last two presidents. I don't have a criminal record. I don't belong to any organizations that could be considered even the slightest bit subversive. In fact, until a few years ago, I held a Secret clearance with the Department of Defense. The only thing we figured that was left was the emails. Not exactly the same thing as tracking someone's web surfing, but definitely close enough to believe Big Brother is watching.

rearadmiral (388) I may be a accused of being a bit of a conspiracy theorist, but to paraphrase Kissinger, even paranoids can have real enemies. With the right-wing nuts that make up much of government and law enforcement, I'm sure we're being monitored. Oh wait, someone just knocked on the door... I'll finishing bad-mouthing government when I get back...

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #4 - Denner :

You can get rid of your spy agencies in Denmark simply by voting them out? Sorry, but here in America voting only changes the names on the corner offices and the photos on the wall (which I have always found very creepy). The last thing any voter would be able to do is dictate the policies of the FBI or NSA or any of the other alphabet soup agencies 'protecting' us, much less get rid of them all together. Hell, if we could do that I might start voting again and get the defense budget cut by half, legalize all drugs and prostitution, outlaw the Patriot Acts and have the top officials from the last Bush administration arrested and sent to Gitmo. ; )

Oh, if only it were so...

slutty (111) I'd be more concerned with my ISP tracking my behavior than the government, as though your government my be tracking data and listening to conversations I'm sure most of this data is ignored - as there are billions of people around, i'd hope they'd have more important things to pay attention to than my porn habits...

exotics4me (463) Sure the US follows us around on the internet. How else are they going to know which porn sites to join?

Denner (235) REPLY TO #9 - turboshaft :

Sorry if I was not clear:
No, turboshaft - not even in this country we have any influence on our spys - what I meant was the 'old story' about the politicians:
We've got the freedom to vote them in - AND we've got the freedom to vote them OUT again......

Still it's worth to keep track on: FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!! - the freedom of the western world - even with all its limitations and Big Brother-deals.

Still we're privileged: communism is dead, but fanatic islam is still out there - and I do not want to get my head chopped off just because I search/download porn...THAT is the new frontier... and allow me to be nostalgic, even if I'm not particular religious:
God Bless the free western world!!!

bacardiancoke (22) Considering the sheer amount of data and the general ineptitude of my (British) govt to actually keep hold of data without it being misplaced on public transport, I highly doubt it.

There will be intelligence gathering on individuals if they fit a certain criteria to be a person of interest, but in general they couldn't give a bollocks as long as you are paying your taxes.

The people who issue store loyalty cards have more personal information on you than the govt ever will.

AND, we brits really have the edge when it comes to snooping on our own govt, search "secret bases" and see how we identify our own installations!!!!! Try that in the US and you'd never be heard from again.

bacardiancoke (22) REPLY TO #7 - RagingBuddhist :

Though, to be fair, it could have been any number of different reasons.... guess we'll never know what it was that prompted them to choose you.

I get picked on a lot at security, though nearly always in lands foreign to mine. Guess I just have that kind of face......
