    I am happy to accept your word that they lie.
    I suspect that you and I have better things to do than stating (and reading) the obvious.

    I have more then a few tricks for keeping track of different things so I dont have to spend alot of time to track or pull the pdf files.

    I've done this on Internet forums before when the mods got edit/delete/censor-happy. They hated that I did it and they hated even more that there was nothing they could do about it.

    In the case of the government, well, I'd just make sure that my evidence gets distributed as a failsafe for attempts at intimidation. "Sorry, Uncle Sam, but I already released the screenshots to the internet. You know how hard it is to make something disappear once it's out there."

    Three more signatures and we're there. Today will probably be the day.

    PS: 3 hrs later -> 25,005 signatures. That was easy.

    I guess this petition program is far more popular than anyone ever imagined it would be - and they don't like what they are seeing. So sad, too bad.

    I do this as well except for I had a friend build a custom script for me that would look and if certain changes met the criteria i was looking for it would do a screen cap in PDF form and html page grab. I Started this after a forum I was a member of when a mod decided to alter my posts in a attempt to make me look bad. I also do it on all posts on the TSA Blog due to bobs censorship.

    I do it whenever I post at PV. It served me well when I turned Bob into the DHS OIG for not putting up posts that meet the stated criteria. ;)

    Doober, did you ever hear back from them about that?

    Not directly, but ever since, none of the posts wherein I have indicated I've made a screen shot have been censored.

    Blithely ignoring the fact that Pistole and his troop of blue-shirted cockroaches are the problem, not an answer.

    Just got it. I am incensed... what on earth made the White House think that having John Pistole respond to the Abolish the TSA petition would be a good idea?

    Exactly. 35K+ signatures, and a b.s. form response.. Typical TSA :td:

    Who wants to mark that up with every provable lie? I see at least eleven without trying too hard.

    i'm so annoyed I just wrote the White House (which I'm sure is a waste of time):

    I just received a response to the "Abolish the TSA" petition. The response was written by the administrator of the TSA.

    What is wrong with you guys?

    The petitioners have had enough of the TSA, and a response from the man most directly responsible for TSA abuse is not what anyone wanted. We wanted to hear from the White House, and we wanted our concerns addressed.

    I suppose we'll have to address them in the November elections instead.

    It's tough to roll-out such a complex modification to TSA's advanced approach to security:rolleyes::td:
