Hundreds of words to avoid using online if you don't want the government spying on you (and they include 'pork', 'cloud' and 'Mexico')


The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

What wasn’t disclosed is how the agency actually gains access to the various search engines and social networks to monitor the specified keywords.

However they insisted the practice was aimed not at policing the internet for disparaging remarks about the government and signs of general dissent, but to provide awareness of any potential threats.

Just "possible threats" eh? Yah right. Just look at this list.

The only thing thats missing is "hello" and "goodbye".

The "DHS" didnt even exist a few years ago. Now they're spying on the American people.

The CIA isnt legally allowed to spy in the US so I guess someone has to!


***ALERT!*** I found some trigger words, "terrorism" and "hurricane", on this website. Better report these guys! Oh wait...

Here are some personal favorites:

"Exercise".

"Plot".

"Sick".

"Smart".

"Pirates".

Used in a sentence:

"Pirates of the Caribbean was great! Whoever wrote the plot must have been really smart. Anyway, I was going to exercise but I'm feeling a little sick"... I know, I'm screwed.


Caring and sharing is fun, get your FOIA request here.

Wow they must be busy.

Not to mention, they must be all over ATS.


So many of those words are used here constantly. Cops, law enforcement (in all of our bad cop threads), all the weather/disaster keywords we throw around in the fragile earth forum, middle east issues, etc.

Well, I'm going to guess they just block a lot of our screen names from a site like this for pure reduction of false alarms then. It sounds like a vocabulary list for required terminology in ATS style blogging.


I can't help it.. It does... I can look across that and see well north of 50% of the terms I've used in various story contexts just since January 1st. Err... Anonymous we aren't, I'd be guessing.

So basically ATS, we're all been monitored.

Hey there monitor, here a big middle finger for you

Seems I have seen that list before on here quite a few years back. Regardless it is a good refresher.

What are Mexicles....is that like a Mexican Popsicle?

IMO, that's not the real list....

That list above is of selected words that once revealed to you, you'll find alternatives for.

It's those alternatives that they want to see if you still use because then it means you're aware of the monitored material and still choose to talk about the subjects.

What terrorist is going to use words like that. If you are trying to avoid detection you would never use words like that, these terrorists are not dumb. It seems like DHS is targeting anyone that may be challenging their organization's or the Federal governments authority, which has nothing to do with the security of the average citizen.

I would have to agree with son of the law above, this is a false list used to make people afraid of the government.

Hey bro,

Tomorrow is my law enforcement fitness test. I'm going to attack this thing!
My recovery time from my exercises this month has improved dramatically and I've upped my exposure to long duration cardio so I should have this thing on lockdown.

Gonna celebrate later a this new BBQ place. I hear their pork is the bomb.

Hey... Something just occurred to me. A little detail has always kinda bugged....and I guess this goes toward explaining it with more than hunch and assumption.

ATS position in Internet Galaxy

It rather explains that large neighbor ATS has in position and size. Terms attract attention these days and the guys who have to check the hits must hate ATS sometimes. lol....

I suppose this would explain that black van that's always parked outside my apartment.

Hehe

We need to incorporate this into a contest in the writing forums.



Whoever can use the most words in a coherent story wins.


Not really but that is funny.

Cool, I've used almost all of those words at some point in time.

I swear I thought no one listened to me.

Thanks DHS you guys are the BOMB!!

Yeah, lets see, here

If the DHS actually monitored what i was doing, they'd have to report me for the Massive Biological Waste Spill, when i contaminated my commode this morning. There was no risin, but it's possible it could be seen as an attack on the Sewer System. That Food Poisoning I got from that Corky's BBQ the other night really did a number on me. I had to declare my bathroom a no-fly zone, and wage a jihad against the fly's that descended on me after that attack. But in the end, I stood victorious over evil and I stood in solemn respect as I flushed my arch-nemis's remains down the great whirlpool. Rest at peace great poo, you earned it. you earned it....

I hope one of you DHS guys had a laugh, or was at least disgusted by that. Piece!

I highly doubt that they are releasing the real list. The real list is no doubt constantly changing due to current trends, events or threats. I think we are just getting hosed.

That is a great idea, a contest to see how many words can be put into an intelligently designed and meaningful hundred word paragraph.
DHS would love that, we would finally get the recognition we deserve on ATS

I thought we weren't supposed to use the word black anymore because it is racist.

People that plan stuff that is outside the law do not use commun words...It's proven that they use code and the coded laguage is even encrypted beyond the capability of decryption by DHS, CIA and FBI.....The funny thing is the encryption software is FREE and you can DL it anywhere on the net....lol

I feel so so sorry for that poor schmuck getting paid 30,000 a year who is forced to listen to my phone calls for hours on end about how hot this or that guy is or what new color blush is out on the market.

I wonder how many people I've made quit that job?

But hey, I might say the word TERRORIST sometime. lol

Well, I certainly hope that those who monitor for such words can tell the difference between a real threat and a crotchety old fart- otherwise it's going to cost them an awful lot of taxpayer money for the thousands of new black vans they will need to add to their fleet. But know this: if they ever start following me around they had best be prepared to be put to work because I could use some extra help in the yard!

Constitution
Patriot
Conservative
IRS
Tea Party
Pro Life
Liberty
Freedom
Oath Keepers
SPLC
