    XKeyscore: NSA tool collects 'nearly everything a user does on the internet'

    Part of the reason it takes so long for the letters to appear as I type?

    If they are downloading Trojans to collect info from citizens computers, this will come back in their faces royally.

    More likely why most people will see the delays you describe is CPU loading. Today many/most web sites rely on JavaScript, and potentially every tab or window that you open in a web browser has its own JavaScript running in the background. The more you open, the slower it gets.

    I use NoScript to disable JavaScript by default for most sites, but as I have to allow it to get selected sites to work, evenually FireFox bogs down & I have restart it. Start over, pass GO, but no $200.

    Too bad I don't have a techie like you onsite to demystify and troubleshoot.

    The news is bad enough:

    XKeyscore looks an awful lot like Splunk.

    Could a computer geek set up a unit to help inject Trojans into their systems?

    I just dashed off an email to my Congressional Representative. Hensarling voted against the amendment to take action against NSA in the Defense Bill . I was quick to make my displeasure known. Now we have this new revelation and things are even worse than I thought they could be.

    If anyone wishes to copy my letter in whole are in part feel free to do so.

    RB, I'd have to say that his vote against the Amash amendment already told you his worth. Or lack thereof.

    Its okay my reps local office already got an earful from me, and a aide I ran into. Come next election cycle critters will either be retiring or wholesale replaced as they have shown they stand with those that commit treason and not support the constitution.

    :rolleyes: Guess we need to take the discussion about pressure cookers and suitable backpacks to one on one talks.

    As I replied to the person who sent me this link, I feel slighted. I've researched pressure cookers online and have read many articles about the Boston bombing. Guess I should do some research on backpacks or other methods of concealment.

    That's a crime. A Trojan is a forum of computer virus, and a number of people have already been prosecuted for writing & distributing them.

    Federal officials, of course, are above the law. :rolleyes:

    Trojans, like the one that damaged Iran's computers?

    Not looking to do it just wondering if it's possible. Surely NSA has some filters in place.

    Who needs trojans when you have MS operating systems w/auto-updates, Skype, Word, etc?

    exactly. you don't need to plant a bug in someone's house if you're inside it.

    4th Amendment? what's that? tell me again why it was written up by the founders?

    exactly for this circumstance.
    Hey, Ballmer: missed the part in your user agreement that said "everything you say can and will be used against you."

    Trying for the third time to post this.

    We all need to spend lots of time doing searches for things like pressure cookers, bombs, backpacks, etc., etc., to bollocks up the local cops, the FBI, the NSA and any other agency that is spying on us. Where that's list of "bad" words that appeared some time ago?
