Maybe an audit is needed... If it's this bad, one can only imagine the ugly truth we aren't being told.

oh ... my ... gawd. nothing learned from history whatsoever. and that coming from someone living in a country that has already passed the enabling act, just waiting for it to be put into action at the will of the president.

the old argument "i have nothing to hide, so they can take my civil liberties away". the exact opposite of the principles your country was founded upon (eg. the declaration of independence).

*shakes head*

I'm sorry but the government doesn't need to know sh*t about my life unless I want them to and the only thing I even dare to care about them knowing is my annual income, jury duty info, mailing address, phone number, and marital status. As for whatever else I do... They can keep their damn noses out of my f*cking business.

My private life and personal information is on a need-to-know basis... And they don't need to know.

Law: When the initial post provides very useful information, as the thread grows its signal/noise ratio can only decrease.

Until you discover how intelligence agencies around the globe gather intel, not for state security, but to spy on your business with the aim to steal it.

Also, take the USA for example. IF the NSA is doing it to protect 300 million Americans, it leaves another 6.7 billion people on the globe exposed by, to them, a foreign government accessing their info illegally! Try see it from the perspective of others.

There will also soon be LibreSSL (an OpenSSL fork supported in terms of development and funding by OpenBSD).

Another post-Heartbleed development is the establishment of the Core Infrastructure Initiative (to be housed at and
co-administered by the Linux Foundation) which has as its mission addressing funding shortfalls in open source projects
deemed to be in the "critical path" for core computing functions.

Some big names have already pledged monetary support.
