So all those stupid emails my conservative friends send me have put me on the watch list?

Thanks Republicans!
 
2013-08-08 10:10:29 AM  
Any Manning? Because a lot of "PEYTON CHOKED IN THE PLAYOFFS AGAIN" emails could overwhelm the system
 
2013-08-08 10:22:04 AM  
If you aren't on the stupid NSA watch list by now, you should be ashamed of yourself.
 
2013-08-08 10:24:32 AM  
If true, I hope they're wasting so much goddamned money and resources investigating that instead of, you know, actual threats.
 
2013-08-08 10:29:09 AM  
what if I was talking about Eli Manning?  am I still going to jail?
 
2013-08-08 10:49:43 AM  
Meh, I've got a DEA number, I've been under watch for a long damn time now.
 
2013-08-08 11:15:37 AM  
I use pictures to communicate with.

I doubt it.  Everyone in the world with a computer would be on their list.  That would kind of defeat the whole purpose of having a list.
 
2013-08-08 11:57:22 AM  
THANKS OBAMA!

Wait... Dammit.
 
2013-08-08 12:02:54 PM  
So, does that mean that my derptastic relatives are all on NSA watch lists for all the fw:FW:fW:Fw:fw: crap that is now populating my FB feed?

I'm pretty sure my political activities landed me a file a long time ago.

ManateeGag: what if I was talking about Eli Manning?  am I still going to jail?


It's Peyton.  He's an evil bastard.

ManateeGag: what if I was talking about Eli Manning?  am I still going to jail?


Depends, if you you were comparing him to Peyton, no, if you were saying he was better than Brady yes, if you mentioned Flacco they are working on the 5150 forms as we speak.
 
2013-08-08 12:48:56 PM  
NSA spies on our enemies. We, the American people, are in that group.
 
2013-08-08 01:12:44 PM  
America will perfect totalitarianism and the majority of Americans will embrace it willingly.
 
2013-08-08 01:21:43 PM  
Isn't that a badge of honor by this point now?
 
2013-08-08 01:22:05 PM  
When does the NSA start selling our data to divorce attorneys?

/Asking for a friend
 
2013-08-08 01:23:13 PM  
I'm already on all the lists. I have family that I text in Ireland and a daughter named Anna that autocorrect sometimes changes to bomb.  I guarantee I'm being tracked.
 
2013-08-08 01:24:03 PM  
Peyton or Eli?
 
2013-08-08 01:25:02 PM  

vpb: I doubt it.  Everyone in the world with a computer would be on their list.  That would kind of defeat the whole purpose of having a list.


Not necessarily. People who are scared of the world believe they have a lot of enemies. See: Nixon, McCarthy, etc.
 
2013-08-08 01:25:36 PM  
Ever since reading about Carnivore back in the 90s, I've assumed that all things I do on the internet are monitored, stored on some sort of automated database somewhere, and searchable at will by whatever agency/company happens to have the info.

My strategy, then, is to exclusively visit the most scum-ridden, vile places on the internet, so that anyone investigating me will simply give up out of disgust. Which is why I like to start "moldies vs. freshies" discussions at any given opportunity.
 
2013-08-08 01:26:36 PM  
It also adds another element to the unfolding debate, provoked by the disclosures of Edward J. Snowden

We need the Obama apologists and the right wing bedwetters to come in and form a volton of derp to tell us all how his actions were pointless and everyone already knew about everything for the past 10 years.

JerkyMeat: America will perfect totalitarianism and the majority of Americans will embrace it willingly.


Perhaps the dumbass city folk will.
 
2013-08-08 01:26:59 PM  
If they keep thinking I'm an enemy of the State I might just have to step up and prove them right.

vpb: I doubt it.  Everyone in the world with a computer would be on their list.  That would kind of defeat the whole purpose of having a list.


Only if the purpose is preventing attacks. A dubious claim.
 
2013-08-08 01:27:18 PM  
What if you OBAMA peppered every one of GITMO your conversations SNOWDEN with these TERRORIST "trigger phrases"? Would that BOMB screw with BIN LADEN these nosy bastards? Kind of WMD like a NSA "red-flag tourettes"?
 
2013-08-08 01:27:23 PM  
I hate to be the one to do this..

First preseason game for the Broncos tonight!

They already use it for copyright violations. Soon it'll be speeding and drugs too

I've really enjoyed those arguments. Racism? Police corruption? child porn? ? What are you getting upset about? Like you didn't know that's been going on for decades???
 
2013-08-08 01:30:49 PM  
 I'm sure Im on all kinds of lists just for the mere fact I'm a military veteran. Hippies are more afraid of me than hot soapy water
 
2013-08-08 01:31:19 PM  
What about submitting lame headlines with Snowden's name?

/excuse me someone's at the door

cman: NSA spies on our enemies. We, the American people, are in that group.


'We" are enemies of some other group "our"? That's some pretty profound doublethink there. The first person plural for describing the actions of nation-states is creepy enough at the best of times but goddamn dude.
 
2013-08-08 01:32:18 PM  
Just google 'NSA keyword list' add them to you sig.

/just a sec, someone's at the door . . .
 
2013-08-08 01:33:37 PM  
So are those the ONLY words that'll get me looked at by the NSA? I'm totally willing to make my email sig "Fark Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul."

This.

I mean only a terrorist would write about police corruption.
 
2013-08-08 01:35:23 PM  
Pfff, been on the watch list for a while because Im a minority with engineering degrees
 
2013-08-08 01:35:31 PM  
Since my wife left, I have been manning my domain all by myself, thank you very much.  Enjoy my communications you pervy peeping toms.

There was an article on fark a while ago about the dea using the database.
 
2013-08-08 01:39:03 PM  
They will also put you on the list if your blood contains detectable levels of Dihydrogen Monoxide .
 
2013-08-08 01:39:10 PM  
when i was a wee lass, i used to not want to touch myself because i was afraid my relatives in heaven were watching me.    im getting this oddly familiar feeling and i dont like it.
 
2013-08-08 01:40:13 PM  
I heard that when Osama was killed, Obama had planned on manning the helicopter himself, but got snowed in.

Woopsie!

We should all just flood the system with this list.

Since everybody is being watched, what watch list is this, a double secret watch list?
