    Not sure what to make of this just yet, but I keep trying to tell people that the wars on piracy and terrorism are going to be used as a reason for the federal, state, and local government/law enforcement, corporations like the RIAA/MPAA, all the way down to your local ISPs, to go as far as they can get away with to keep tabs on populations and data.

    P.S, privacy went down the road long ago with the creation of the WWW, and it's not going to come back.
