    FBI: We need wiretap-ready Web sites - now

    CNET learns the FBI is quietly pushing its plan to force surveillance backdoors on social networks, VoIP, and Web e-mail providers, and that the bureau is asking Internet companies not to oppose a law making those backdoors mandatory.

    The FBI is asking Internet companies not to oppose a controversial proposal that would require firms, including Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, and Google, to build in backdoors for government surveillance.

    In meetings with industry representatives, the White House, and U.S. senators, senior FBI officials argue the dramatic shift in communication from the telephone system to the Internet has made it far more difficult for agents to wiretap Americans suspected of illegal activities, CNET has learned.

    i seem to recall this push going on some time ago. netizens banded together to quash it. <sigh> well, all the fbi and them got to do is engineer another "crisis" and start the screaming again. if it weren't for the "guardians" pulling crap that pisses everybody off, there wouldn't be a need to guard against the invasions of the "guardians", such as attempting to forestall this newest repeat of a desired further erosion of whatever shards are left of "privacy".

    i'm thinking that the best "defense" would be a vpn that keeps the pipe saturated in "noise" such that any actual "signals" can't be seen, eh?

    That's how it is--when we depend on White folk (to provide internet, for instance), we can depend on their devising ways to destroy us.

    Our problem is one of dependence.

    How would revolts have looked like if we only congregated with White moderators?

    We already have a problem of snitches, this here is just the icing on the cake.
