Legal "Britain's spy agency GCHQ has secretly gained access to the network of cables which carry the world's phone calls and internet traffic and has started to process vast streams of sensitive personal information which it is sharing with its American partner, the National Security Agency. The sheer scale of the agency's ambition is reflected in the titles of its two principal components: Mastering the Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation, aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible. This is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate." Woah.

Not trolling, but not paranoid either!

I was merely pointing out that without knowing the whole story it's very hard to judge an action or reaction. That is why I said anyone who KNOWS someone, which got a reply which could have very easily come from a newspaper report, hardly a personal account now is it?
