LXer: NSA targets the privacy-conscious

Published at LXer:

Merely searching the web for the privacy-enhancing software tools outlined in the XKeyscore rules causes the NSA to mark and track the IP address of the person doing the search... It also records details about visits to a popular internet journal for Linux operating system users called "the Linux Journal - the Original Magazine of the Linux Community", and calls it an "extremist forum".

I didn't know they actually consider Linux forums extremist. I think next they'll say any advanced computer user is an extremist. Oh well, not like I'm gonna give up on Linux because some totally AWOL gov't agency believes it is extremist for no reason at all.
