I spent 18 months offline and when I got back and checked my Yahoo? Over 40,000 emails in my inbox - not including my spam folder.

They wiped nothing.

Took me a solid month to filter through it all.

Any law that violates the constitution is void

I have one gmail account and one fake shaw email account that all my spam email gets sent to - because all sites like ATS require an email in order to sign up. The government can have access to those - all I receive is spam.

I don't understand why this is a huge shock to people or for that matter why people actually care? Perhaps I am being a bit too harsh but if you are not doing anything you should not be why would you be bothered about law enforcement checking your email? People always tend to moan when these email viruses get sent around saying that law enforcement do not do enough and now people are moaning because they are checking people's email accounts which could potentially solve some of these viruses. I don't understand what alternative motives the government would have.

Hmm. And they call themselves an honest country. I just hate it. Anyone can access my E-Mail at any time if they want to. Anyone can know anything about me if they want to. Maybe, for once, we should all just unplug ourselves from this matrix, and live a life where we have privacy, where no body can know what we send, what we receive, or what we do.

It just spoils my day knowing that government agencies can tap into my E-Mails, my phone line, my google account, and many other things, and just take information as if the information were water on earth, and you were scooping it all up. So, realistically, privacy is a non-existent entity, but one made solely for the purpose of keeping us under control. It is just a word, but in this world, the definition is not present.

Who cares what they can do? I don't care if they access my e-mail. If they want to waste their time on me then they're leaving someone else alone. yes it's unconstitutional and yes it is tyranny. But they'll get theirs. Who ever they are, they can kiss my ****ss. They want you to fear them and be afraid of their surveilence. Why should I fear people who are going die. They're time is short and if they want to seize this communication then by all means do so.

In my very honest opinion, I don't understand how anyone can believe ANY activity on the internet is private. Yes, I understand that there are laws, rules, regulations, rights, etc. to protect privacy blah blah blah...

I am not saying that every action of every person online is monitored or tracked or anything like that. I am, however, saying that there is absolutely no reason to believe that "they" can't/won't/don't do it more than we already think "they" do.

NOT TRUE. Unless something has changed since the last time the Los Angeles Police Dept raided my email account. But they needed a warrant signed by a Judge to view my email accounts, as well as my cell phone history details.

Hey, ATS, your moderators should be flagging false information. If you want to hire me, I'm looking for a job and will work for food. Or, at minimu, you should require members to prove they at least have high school diplomas.

I didnt wqnt to start a new thread but here is more snooping being introduced to the UK soon (probably by 2014)

Theresa May Defends Plans To Track Crime Online:

They cal it Crime so they need to track everyones online activity because of course we are all committing a crime by emailing, texting or calling people....

check it out:

news.sky.com...

Some of the story:

The Home Secretary has insisted new powers allowing police to monitor emails and internet use will save lives.

Theresa May claimed the powers, which have been condemned by critics as a "snoopers' charter", will help catch paedophiles and terrorists and tackle organised crime.

And she suggested it could help stop tragedies like the gunning down of policewomen Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone earlier this year.

Under the proposals, communications companies would be required to keep details of every phone call, email and website visit for up to a year.

Police, the security services, the new National Crime Agency and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) would all be able to access the data.


I agree some people need to be watched but the majority of us dont!!

The ole "Save the Children" plea. Canada just went through this.

If I remember correctly, Canada's version was "Protect children online from predators Act" or something along the same lines.

I just can't wait until I see the bill entitled: "Stop deranged madmen from entering your home, raping your family and cutting off your hands Act."

C'mon... We need that one!

It protects us all by implementing a security strategy by having someone from the state sit in one room of your house 24 hours a day with recording devices. Woohoo! Can't wait...

I sense sarcasm. I like it.

I feel that if the police want to view the LOL Kittehs some people send me or the poor unfortunate ladies who can't afford clothing other people send me, they are welcome to waste their time.
