New Information about NSA Electronic Surveillance
It is apparently very easy for the NSA to target anyone in the US for extensive electronic monitoring without a warrant. All they need for tracking is a bit of identifying information (like an email or IP address). This really doesn't bother me at all. There's so many people out there on the internet that even if the government collects my data, no one will look at it. Also, why do I need to keep my web activity so private? I don't understand why so many internet users care so much about this? Seems like a non-issue to me.
