This is true; however, one can't tell from which forum a particular poster is accessing a thread.<quoted text>
No, actually, I'm responding to a forum in the U.S. section. I've learned that Topix has multiple links to threads.
So you just whine to anonymous posters in multiple internet forums in hopes they will actually take constructive action which you yourself are apparently too lazy to undertake. And you even admit your whining to other "civilians" about privacy didn't accomplish a fraction as much as a single concrete act by Edward Snowden. Got it.As far as fancy "address the government" bombast goes, I don't just go mailing letters to Congressmen who thank me for my input and explain to me how I can contribute value and money to that Congressman's efforts. Poor, hard working douchebags!
I post to the civilians out there. I've posted many times over the years about government spying and all anyone ever had to say is "If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear". I don't bother trying to "win" people over. They're fat morons who only go for instant gratification.
No. On most issues, I work from an "eat your $hit first" methodology. Now privacy abuse is starting to make people hurt. That's good, but it's not enough. They have to get off their @sses, open up their big pie-holes and learn to communicate again. I don't need a bunch of fat looters who steal from small business owners. I need organized, politically active, and if necessary, prepared soldiers for a conflict that they better understand and believe in. I don't do pep-rallies! All things considered, I'd be much happier if we'd just create a third party and kick the criminals out of our government.
So what are you going to do about it? Bore me to death with your whining?So guess what? You're in my cross-hairs as one of the biggest obstacle to all that stuff and junk!
Whatever. Vacuous windbags like you are neither threatening nor entertaining so serve no useful purpose here. Run along and find someone else to annoy.You're really not in the plan. You're a liability. You'll always be a liability. Stay out of the way. It's for your own good.
