    What ever happened to personal privacy? Will government intercept our letters and read those next?

    These kinds of actions are nothing short of a search of your property without warrant. Word to the wise is to never put anything questionable in any form of written, electronic, or other form of communication that you don't want Big Sis reading in the morning.

    edit to add:

    Apparently Big Sis is also interested in other activities on the Net. Talk bad about government and get put on a list.

    DHS Privacy Review Fails to Address DHS Monitoring of Online Dissent

    The Department of Homeland Security released a Privacy Compliance Review which found that the DHS social media monitoring program complied the DHS's own privacy requirements. Documents obtained by EPIC through a FOIA lawsuit revealed that DHS is monitoring social networks and media organizations for criticism of the agency. Congress held a Hearing earlier this year to determine why DHS is tracking political statements on Twitter and social networks. EPIC's lawsuit against DHS is ongoing. For more information, see EPIC: EPIC v. Department of Homeland Security: Media Monitoring.

    Hey we're all on their lists! (expletive deleted), Nappy.
    I read a bit of the link to the DHS privacy statement and had to snicker. DHS has so many lists and the like there is no way they can coordinate them.

    Empire building at its finest.
