A flyer designed by the FBI and the Department of Justice to promote suspicious activity reporting in internet cafes lists basic tools used for online privacy as potential signs of terrorist activity. The document, part of a program called “Communities Against Terrorism”, lists the use of “anonymizers, portals, or other means to shield IP address” as a sign that a person could be engaged in or supporting terrorist activity. The use of encryption is also listed as a suspicious activity along with steganography, the practice of using “software to hide encrypted data in digital photos” or other media. In fact, the flyer recommends that anyone “overly concerned about privacy” or attempting to “shield the screen from view of others” should be considered suspicious and potentially engaged in terrorist activities.

Logging into an account associated with a residential internet service provider (such as Comcast or AOL), an activity that could simply indicate that you are on a trip, is also considered a suspicious activity. Viewing any content related to “military tactics” including manuals or “revolutionary literature” is also considered a potential indicator of terrorist activity. This would mean that viewing a number of websites, including the one you are on right now, could be construed by a hapless employee as an highly suspicious activity potentially linking you to terrorism.






* People Who:


Are overly concerned about privacy, attempts to shield the screen from view of
others

Act nervous or suspicious behavior inconsistent with activities



* Activities on Computer indicate:

Evidence of a residential based internet provider (signs on to Comcast, AOL,
etc.)

Use of anonymizers, portals, or other means to shield IP address

Suspicious or coded writings, use of code word sheets, cryptic ledgers, etc.

Encryption or use of software to hide encrypted data in digital photos, etc.

Suspicious communications using VOIP or communicating through a PC game




* Use Computers to:

Download content of extreme/radical nature with violent themes

Gather information about vulnerable infrastructure or obtain photos, maps or
diagrams of transportation, sporting venues, or populated locations



Download or transfer files with “how-to” content such as:
- Content of extreme/radical nature with violent themes
- Military tactics, equipment manuals, chemical or biological information
- Preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attacks
- Defensive tactics, police or government information
- Information about timers, electronics, or remote transmitters / receivers



Sounds like a typical ATS member to me^^^









So, to recap...

In case you didn't realize it; you may be terrorist. I know what you're thinking, NO WAY! But, you'd be mistaken because these are behavoirs that you and a terrorist have in a common. Are you paranoid for irrational reasons? No way, sir, there's clearly and agenda. You must be hidding something... GUILTY!

lol this is hilarious.. according to this brochure essentially everyone I know that works in IT and has half a clue about security is a terrorist...

1) Use encryption? Check
2) Have multiple phones (personal + business)? Check
3) Concerned about online privacy and security? Check
4) Use VoIP? Check
5) Pay in cash wherever possible? Check
6) Use anonymizers, proxies etc? Check and mate.

I have to admit I didn't realise I was an evil terrorist until their brochure came out. I now see the light, guess it's time to pack my bags. I hear Guantanamo is nice this time of year

I'm glad to hear you finally realized you were a terrorist. There are facilities out there designed to help these kind of people. You might have heard of Guantanamo, it's a cozy place you'd enjoy. Let me see if I can find the brochure...

This is insanity! I could be labeled a terrorist becouse I have geolocation turned off in Firefox and use Skype a lot to talk to people, even worse I talk to people around the globe, Aussies friends kiwi friends, friends in Norway, Sweden, Germany, South Africa! On my! They are watching me I can feel the prying eyes already! Waiting for the black hilicopters and SUV's to start following me.
glad I have nothing to hide. Waste of time and money.

On a serious note, this is getting way out of control.

As far as I know there is no such thing as online privacy.
Whenever someone can have 2 details on your person/persona, they can find out who you are and where you sleep.
And some make it that much easier with their phones and facespace accounts.
But yeah, privacy would be a nice thing.
However I know I'm no terrorist, someday I may become a freedom fighter, but terrorist never.

I believe in the use of "reasonable"anonymous methods when posting on line, for no other reason the vast majority of people need to guard access to their posts from who are private hackers, and non-US state actors. Though most people don't have to worry about the later. Anything of interest to said non-US actors should not be on an open site or unencrypted technology&protocol anyway. If there is such concern over this, and frankly I question the logical use of available safeguards as being "an indication one is a terrorist" as ridiculous. Since certain filters are used to sort out the wheat from chaff, if that is a primary protocol perhaps a method available for authorized USG monitoring to take place should be offered. Hell, being concerned about hacking or inappropriate access to anyone's computer is logical, and the Feds need to be able to differentiate threat from cautionary behavior.

There are current techniques employed on-line, in emails, or other forms of computer and Net communication that are problematic. They don't have anything to do w/using the said methods that has created concern as listed in the OP.. Frankly I find it unlikely that the USG can't determine the true source of a post even if using deflected or spoofing techniques, but honestly don't know. As for what is problematic in determining true communication and other factors thats inappropriate to talk about. And no, I don't use any of them anyway for what ever thats worth.

But didn't you hear?
Terrorist and Freedom fighter mean the same thing from different perspectives.
I will be a Freedom fighter too one day, and that day ever approaches quickly.

We will get our world back from the clutches of the dark (the dark being # like this, and other anti-freedom things, the global elite, banking cabal, etc)

I think it is now more than obvious... even to those who are patriotic and quite often so conservative that speaking this aloud is still impossible... it has become obvious that the intent of our government is to decommission the US Constitution, piece by piece in such a way as to be unnoticeable to the greater whole of the electorate at any one time.

The aim is shifted from time to time so that what is loss is most apparent from the left and then the right separately and that they then blame presidents and congresses and basically... overall, politics.

Of course, this DOES means that there is a concerted effort from a single source to do this... it fulfills the conspiracy because it damn sure all but defines it!

You wanna blame Obama? Go ahead.
Blame Congress? That's fine.
Blame the Dems or the Neocons or the Tea Party or the Commies? Please do!!!

Whatever you do, just stay focused on your own...

Got to love fine print:


Each indictor listed above, is by itself, lawful conduct or behaviour and may also constitute the exercise of rights guaranteed by the U.S Constitution. In addition, there may be a wholly innocent explanation for conduct or behaviour that appears suspicious in nature.

I find it funny they even need to mention the constitution considering they can now incarcerate you for life without charging you of any crime, torture you, assassinate you or strip you of your US citizenship.

I also found this particular wording weird:

Apparently use trade craft

Nothing else needs to use a 'maybe' word.. Why just that point?

And of course the anarchist cookbook is on their HAHA.
Yep, we are all terrorists now.



I also found a web link for those who cant see the picture:
How to tell if you're a terrorist


And,
apparently this sign is going up in places that sell fertalizer:
How to tell if you're a farming terrorist

This thread begun in another thread and 3 clicks later i ended back to the same thread...talk about cool seo tricks...seems to me at is deploying black hat tricks..


Back to topic...

Am becoming tired of the fear factor regarding what you do online, look people unless your have some botnet at your disposal of unless your trying out scripts on websites or trying to gain access to restricted parts of a gov site..dont worry about... remember, fear is a natural instinct, its tweaking it up a notch that creates the psychosis within...

love the new psyops project being released and doing as expected wtihin the conspiracy sites across the world.

Psychosis
Psychosis is a loss of contact with reality, usually including false beliefs about what is taking place or who one is (delusions) and seeing or hearing things that aren't there (hallucinations).

"Purchase chemicals, acids, hydrogen peroxide, acetone, fertilizer, etc."

So say someone is primarily home-bound but once in awhile can handle trip to an internet cafe to be amongst people in mall doses and have a cup of joe while surfing and does all their shopping online, they order some vinegar “acids” some supplies for their first aid kit “Hydrogen peroxide” some nail polish remover “acetone” some plant food “fertilizer”

UH OH TERRORIST!

"Revolutionary literature"

If you own a copy of End The Fed or The Revolution: A Manifesto, you're a suspected terrorist. And if you pay for things with cash? Terrorist.

Well, I guess I'll add this story to this thread as well:

iPhone Crime App


The company utilizes Smartphone technology to put crime reporting, literally, in the hands of users. After downloading the free iPhone or Android application, users can report an ongoing crime with the push of a button. A package of information including the location of the crime, photo, video, audio, and text description of the crime are sent to authorities immediately. The application also allows for users to report crime anonymously so that they may continue with their busy lives knowing that with a push of a button, police will know and have everything to pursue the criminal. Ordinary users become the eyes and ears of authorities.


Remember, if you see something, say something.
