Remember Carnivore circa 97-2004 or so? how do we know there is not another such system that is unadvertised that is in use right now ? also do not
forget that the internet or (ARPANET) was developed by the DOD and the U.S. government , who later brought in the colleges and universities to expand
the usage, this should make you think about the privacy you really have even if there are private telecoms that are the ISP this could fool some as to
who really does own the internet when they pay their bill to Verizon or whoever, not keeping in mind the history of the internet itself some people
have a false sense of true anonymity when it comes to their activities on the internet.
We should all know they (the government) can pretty much do what they want and have access to things already (gateways, backbones and ISP), prior to
this, sort of the like the farce about FISA and having to get a warrant before wiretapping why would wiretaps be needed if all data is recorded or
backed up for future reference, if there are devices that capture digitally any communication whether on the cell phone, landline or computer I put
money on it that any sort of posturing to create new regulations are just rubber stamps on what is already occurring or has been contemplated.
For anyone to truly think anything you do on the internet cannot be seen or traced in this day and time especially if you are here in the U.S. you
would have to be very naive and uninformed about the very technologies that you utilize to communicate (encrypted or unencrypted) , you should
probably change your mindset if you intend on doing anything that you do not want discovered or known publicly.
