Does this affect people outside the US?
If you don't want to discuss it then so be it, but there is no need to be obnoxious simply because you don't agree with me or don't care. Just stop if you hate taking about it that much.
politicians cant waste any tragedy, every massacre is an opportunity
first off, TradewindNQ, it can affect you. Google, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft are all American companies. if you use their products, your personal data falls under their EULAs and American privacy laws, because they're in hands of American companies. even MMO-champion is in US hands.
now, suppose that one of our US posters here is a suspect in an FBI investigation. if you are communicating a lot with that person through the forums, you could get targeted as well. if one of the Boston bombers had an account on here, or another forum you visit often, and you communicated often with him, you would be a suspected person.
and Walbomb, 99% of pornsites have a redhead tag or even section. there are millions of redhead videos on the internet, with billions of views. so many people watch porn. what is the FBI going to do? are they going to analyse all the US hosted redhead video stats that are appropriate for the investigation? if we take 50 million videos with 100 relevant views each, that's 5 billion views they need to analyse, link to people and interpret. if your neighbour has a 16 year old kid, that's just as likely a target as you.
Currently only reading the Funny Pictures Megathread because the rest of the forums is filled with piss, whiners and pissed whiners.
The world needs some good old revolutions, because most governments are clearly not working.
disgusting, Senate are a broken and expired system. How can a country count on a handfull of old and tired men and women that half of them don't know what internet is, let them vote for any bill?! These pathetic people can be bought, and they are, by big corporations or lobbies so they vote before even having a clue about the bills themselves. Now they use a national tragedy to ninja pass the bill. Not only this is disrespectful for the victims, it's a disrespect for all americans (which I am not).
