So the government is wasting money. What a load of tosh.

Err, yes, of course! Government bodies waste more money than anyone! The country wouldn't be in such a financially sticky position if they actually got wastage under control in public sector departments such as NHS (some departments), local councils, research etc.

It's not the sites you visit you've got to worry about, it's the error rates in their detection systems. Even a tiny false positive rate produces so much data to be looked at by humans that it overwhelms them. It's a needle in a very big haystack, unfortunately you get many pins as well to sift through. Here's a good explanation of why mass surveillance for the purposes of detecting and preventing terrorism is a straw-man argument:

As for them not having contents of communications, the meta data they do collect is enough to give a very detailed picture of your life - what do you think Facebook like buttons on a site are there for? To track you across the web, facebook user or not and profile you.

Don't you start. Wasting money on trying to stop terrorism is what we're on about.

If you, like the two other trolls, want to hark back to what you think you remember from years ago, include me out because the past is a foreign country... as they say.

This discussion has wandered a long way off-topic about new DNS servers being available.

If you've nothing to hide then let them monitor.


i have nothing to hide, but I still do not like to be monitored, that is why I use cash for 99% of my transactions and why I do not have a loyalty card.
