In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

You are inferring a whole lot. When did I say it was okay?

Hint: I didn't, I don't think it's okay.

All I'm doing is pointing out the absurdity of claiming that international users will be safer/better off by avoiding American web sites, sites which in many cases cannot be replaced with a non-American site.
