Department of Homeland Security Monitoring Social Media - Bolty - 02-29-2012 04:41 PM

Stolen from Slashdot comes news of how the Electronic Privacy Information Center released information given to a Department of Homeland Security contractor regarding what social media keywords are being scanned "for our safety."

Therefore, I would just like to say:

Thanks, Bolty! I feel safer already, knowing the vigilant eye of the United States government is watching over out little corner of the internet.

I aim to please! You can never be too safe from those terrorists!

I'm also wondering how many of those words/phrases have already been used on this forum at some point in time. I'm too lazy to search them all. Smile

Bonus credit: please use "Tamaulipas" in a sentence.

no Communist, Marxist, Socialist, or Revolution/Revolutionary on that list? Sheesh, I feel neglected now. Huh

Someday, I pray to Allah, that I be made President of either Blackwater, or a bomb making company. If not that, then I would be content to work as a senior scientist producing chemical or biological weapons.

I am an


father, and my young son has many friends in our neighbourhood. We have a pool and we enjoy it very much, but my son has a lot more fun with our pool when his friends can come over and swim in it, so he'll go out


some of the neighbour kids that can swim with him in our pool. Swimming with dad just isn't fun Sad

I don't mind neighbourhood kids swimming in our pool - it's there to be enjoyed. They always have a great time, and it's fun to watch the kids play. I do have a few rules though -


and boys have to know how to swim, stay entirely in the shallow end, wear a life jacket, or have their parents watch them while in our pool. I take pool safety very seriously.

I also do not allow street clothes in my pool. Stray threads from cutoff jeans and junk in kids' pockets mess up my pool filter. The kids must be


to swim in our pool, and have their own towels. I just don't have enough towels for everyone!

I read the document from EPIC. It was nice that at the end, they didn't redact the twitter account (DHSNOCMMC1) used to do the monitoring of twitter feeds. Someone might be inclined to feed it @DHSNOCMMC1.
