I remember when the whole PRISM story brake there were loads of people on the web, including here on ATS, who wanted to "troll the NSA" to some how
overload their servers or cause some kind of problems for the NSA.
Its a utterly stupid idea, firstly its possible that you might land yourself in trouble or be getting a little bit of extra attention form the NSA if
you put things like "Obama assassination" as the subject line of all your E-mails, tests, and say it every time you answer your phone.
But aside's from that its not actually going to work, the five eyes of the NSA suck up so much SIGINT that a few thousand keyboard warriors isn't
going to make any difference.
But lets suppose it does, that's even worse, it would leave American's both inside the continental United States and abroad (ie, Afghanistan) open
Now you might not like the idea of PRISM, I know i don't, but like i keep saying, we have known about these types of systems since the 1990's and
not been disturbed by them. I think it sucks that we life in a world were this goes on, really i do, but it does and so long as terrorists and our
nations enemies are using electronic signals to communicate some form of SIGINT capability is needed as a matter of national security.
Anyone who attempts to somehow "turn off" the NSA should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
