What the fug is wrong with people like you? The "If you've got nothing to hide, then derp derp fuging derp" crowd.


Nothing is wrong with me, I just have a different perspective than you and others....

More than I value absolute privacy I value the safety and protection law enforcements provides... I fully understand those who's values are the opposite way around. If we could put security cameras on most street corners to help prevent & deter crime while helping to track down perpetrators I am all for that to. I know that is not realistic, but would still be my preference.

I have nothing to hide either, and I'm willing to bet most Americans don't, but that doesn't mean you want someone getting to know you through your emails and chats without your knowledge or consent... And what's the point in wasting time and money pilfering through 90 some percent of the population's emails when they live an uneventful, transparent life?


I just don't mind it.... I don't think they will pilfer through my E-Mail just for kicks.... But if something triggered and they thought I was linked to some crime I would not mind them doing so... My thought would be by having this available it would make their job that much easier when it comes to law enforcement duties.

I mean if someone in the CIA or something looked through my E-Mail, how will that effect my life? Hell I wouldn't even know they did. Just my .02 cents.... Like I said I 100% understand those who are not for it, therefore I don't push my opinions on anyone, I was just stating my feelings.

SMH... More and more rights being stripped away... I really hope this isn't passed. If someone is suspected of criminal activity, get a warrant and search away - it's warranted and necessary, otherwise, they have no right to freely pry into people's personal lives.


AMEN!

I only speak personally for me, but I am all for it. I have nothing to hide in my E-Mail and if it helps Law enforcement that much more I am all for it.


So, why don't you also vote to let them come into your home anytime they want, without warning or cause.

That's just crazy talk. Crazy.

Because I don't view someone reading my E-Mail, and someone walking into my household and looking around the same.

Invasion of my privacy is invasion of my privacy ... period. To each his own, but I hope more people care about keeping the government OUT of our lives (and email) than don't care like you.

given the history of government, i'm not inclined to believe they'd be moral much less responsible with said powers.

that said, the idea of "big brother" existing as most people conceive it doesn't hold true. said investigations generally only happen when triggered by an event rather than a continual monitoring by an actual person(s). the vast majority of said investigations only involve actual people after a flag has been automatically raised due to a programmatic threshold or a warrant has been specifically ordered

The dude behind the rumors on this bill is the guy who originated the "Al Gore said he invited the internet" smear. The rewrite that includes the warrentless stuff is a draft document and isn't the one that's going to hearing,

Leahy: “The rumors ... are incorrect. Many have come forward with ideas for discussion before markup resumes on my bill to strengthen privacy protections. ... One of them, having to do with a warrant exception, is one that I have not supported and do not support.”

I'm about to send 500 emails filled with pictures of dicks to each of my email addresses with subjects such as "Are we still on for that suicide bombing Thursday bro?"
