      •  Not to worry. NSA knew they were being sued (2+ / 0-)

        and by whom well before it was made public. BTW, they found some interesting background information on the plaintiffs that may be pertinent to the lawsuit.

      •  It's fun to pretend someone finds any of us (1+ / 0-)

        that threatening.  Sadly, we're not even censored in China.  

        •  Very few here are "threatening" - at this time (0+ / 0-)

          But there are some here that warrant watching. We don't want events to get out of hand (such as another OWS) and escalate to the violence we've seen in other nations. It is within blogs such as DKos where some of these ideas can be nurtured and fomented so it's best to keep an eye on them.

          Forewarned is forearmed. The security of the state is paramount for the safety of the people, especially during times of economic stress.

          •  Then there's paranoia (1+ / 0-)

            that the government is collecting all this information and somehow using it against us. We'd need to employ half the population of the US just to collate it into some sort of usable database, and the other half to analyze it.
            You've got several different private companies tracking your information as well- like the so-called petitions everyone signs that are used for donor information and email lists.
            If you're worried about privacy, hanging out on a well known liberal blog isn't exactly the way to go about it.

            •  "Collect it all" - never know when it will come (0+ / 0-)

              in handy.

              BTW, who still believes the post 9/11 surveillance/security state is just about terrorism? We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars and some of the greatest insults to the rule of law and the constitution since the founding of America.

              If you're worried about privacy, hanging out on a well known liberal blog isn't exactly the way to go about it.
              Wouldn't one be more concerned about hanging out at a militant right-wing blog. I would expect that the US government would be very supportive of liberal blogs.
