Spying on Your Email

OH NOES! THE GOVERNMENT IS WATCHING EVERYTHING YOU DO VIA EMAIL AND SNS!!! What do you do??? Log out of your fanfic account! Quick, delete those nude pics!

For some people this feels like a major problem. Not the nude pics, but the idea that their stuff is being watched. I myself am not too concerned with it. Considering we put a lot of our life online for the general public to see, I’m not really worried about the conversations about food and life going on in my email and SNS. I kind of feel like the this day and age is a lot like the movies Men In Black…there is a lot more technology and a lot more things going on behind the scenes of the government that we don’t know about. When I heard the government was busted for spying on people’s accounts my first reaction was, “wait, didn’t everyone already know that?” I honestly thought it was already happening because, let’s be honest, it was already happening.

Now that we all know it is already happening, the question is if you will take precautions to keep your life private. It will be pretty hard in our case since it’s almost impossible to delete stuff off the internet. This is something Beyonce and her bad picture moment learned when she tried to delete it off the internet. Once quick google search and yup, there is it.

Hawt Beyonce

So what do you think about this? Has your goverment been busted yet for spying in on you? Do you care or do you think it isn’t happening?

  1. I agree with others that I already assume I’m being watched. I don’t have a strong digital presence, though, so I’m more of the mindset that I have nothing to hide.

  2. the us has been doing it for years. they search for certain keywords. the main problem is that your ISP saves emails,texts,chats etc. those can come back to bite you if you ever go to court for criminal/civil actions

  3. Well, being from Canada where we put into effect Bill C-51, the anti terrorism act that lets the government spy agency to spy on anyone that’s a “terrorist” yet gives no definite answer as to what that is, then yeah they’re spying on us. Recently it was revealed that the envioronmental activists were being spied upon because they are “terrorists” against our crap of a government led by our horrible PM.

    So… yeah that bill is so going well… I’ll be glad when a new government is formed by the other parties that will remove this horrible bill.

    • I’ve been hearing bad things about Canada’s PM lately. I don’t know anyone that’s happy. Some friends of ours have told us they plan on leaving if he gets elected in again.

      • The number of people he has angered is growing. Hopefully, everyone votes strategically and he doesn’t get re-elected…

  4. I’m from the states and there was a big hub-bub recently about privacy. I, like you, always figured my communication was being watched anyway, so it didn’t change anything that I do.

    This may be quite an unpopular opinion, but it doesn’t bug me at all that my communication is being “watched.” There are SO MANY people communicating constantly! I feel like everyone likes to overblow the security thing, thinking that they are such a beautiful and unique snowflake and important enough to require constant surveillance, but the reality is that national security is way more concerned with actually terrible things rather than your dog’s instagram or marijuana-related text messages or even your d*ck pics.

    To the point made in the video about releasing information about how many crises were averted due to the surveillance, I highly doubt that would ever happen. Releasing that kind of information would also expose vulnerabilities in the system, therefore giving the “bad guys” tools to get around it.

    Again, probably a super unpopular opinion, but I’m open to some discussion!
