No, I'm a thinking individual, much like yourself.

You cannot possibly hope to protect your rights if you don't even understand what they are.
I know I'm on a public forum and the government can see these websites. All I'm saying is that they're actively monitoring them. And they
shouldn't waste their time with us unless they have a reason to do so. They have better things to do than to get kicks out of conspiracy forums.
If they dig into your computer, they're in your private life. If they tap your phone, that's an invasion. Reading what you publicly post
isn't an invasion of your privacy ONCE YOU POST IT PUBLICLY.
The issue is that the government is monitoring your behavior. That is right there a restriction of what you can or cannot do. It would be different
if it was someone else doing it like a private company, but, the government sets the rules and that's the problem. I don't like their presence on
It doesn't really have to do with privacy per se, but, I want to know why the heck they're wasting their time here, and, unless they have a
nefarious objective they have no reason to be here at all. They can watch individual users if they really have done something wrong. But they have
to have a reason for monitoring this site... and I don't think that this is something they do normally.
Don't even start presuming I haven't known what technological capabilities are available for way more years than you've obviously been alive.
Okay, then what would make you think that the government isn't monitoring your PC data, or, your individual actions? I've kind of assumed they have
a big database of all of our actions probably in the NSA somewhere. I wouldn't be surprised if they did.
