You put tape over a decoy. That's not the camera. It only looks like a camera.

Now that's paranoid! Shocking

Unfortunately, he's right. The entire screen can reverse image what is in front of it. That information can be retrieved by any interested party with the appropriate technology. [/foil hat]

They sure is titty christ don't get it by reading my emails.
As if emails are the only thing they are checking... And frankly, you don't know where they get any information that turns out to be relevant. Moreover, you don't know where relevant information will be regardless of where it has been previously.

What are you Fox News now?
Why?? Why does it have to be one or the other?? That's right wing propaganda with no basis. Please show me why it must be one or the other and why can't just have both (as the taco girl says).
Because terrorists aren't putting their details in nice public places that make them easy to find. And, by the way, phone taps, building searches, etc. are also an invasion of privacy even with warrants. The difference is it's legal, but anyone who would abuse private information can do so just as easily with information obtained with a warrant.

Oh ok, I'll just come over to your house and have a good rummage around then.
It's ok because I won't tell anyone what I found.
The analogy fails. I never claimed anyone should have a right to your personal information for any reason. We're talking about the NSA specifically and their purpose in accessing the information is at least allegedly to find terrorists and stop attacks. And they're pulling data on millions if not billions of people. There simply can't be casual reading of just anybody's emails or other information.

What he did ultimately was the right thing to do (even though I think the way he went about it was wrong). What the US government was doing was illegal and the public did need to know. There's reasons why courts have to issue warrants. There's reasons why the US isn't considered an authoritarian military dictatorship.

Lib-er-ty, look it the fuck up.
If you honestly believe that there is ANY major intelligence agency out there in the world that really cares about keeping everything legal, then you truly must have been born yesterday.

Because it's our fucking rights to not have them illegally interfering with our business. Just because you're not doing anything wrong doesn't mean you have any less rights.
You want your rights, but what will you say when they fail to stop a terrorist attack? Will you be one outraged by their incompetence? I mean I SUPPOSE they could just look around at public websites, ask everyone they meet "are you a terrorist?", make public announcements asking terrorists to turn themselves in - maybe even offer cushy prison cells for them in exchange for their honesty, and offer rewards to anyone who provides credible tips. How far do you think that will get them? Drinking Beverage

No, stupid is expecting results while tying their hands and feet and blindfolding and gagging them.

Mine is taped shut too. One time I went to yahoo and there I was, staring at myself sitting here - they had turned on the camera without asking and were inviting me to some chat or something. That did it, black tape over the camera. It kind of pissed me off. How dare they watch me without asking, and that was just Yahoo. I often sit here in pyjamas, with bed-hair, waiting for my coffee...sometimes I skip the pyjamas. Nobody's business but mine.

But I realize that the times of privacy are pretty much over. I disabled all spyware we know about in windows 10 too. I hate that shit. One time I was shopping for underwear and for weeks after that all my ads were freaking underwear. WTF? I don't want to see underwear all day... I also don't allow location tracking. My search history is going to put their brains in overdrive - if it exists, I have probably done some research on it, I am curious as heck. I am pretty sure I am still exposed to all kinds of spying...I hate that shit.
