[liberationtech] NSA flag terms

Also, just as an interesting observation, there are a number of text memes
running around now that claim to jam the NSA.  You may have seen one that
refers to "overthrow my boss," for example.

These are kind of like Mad Libs (tm) incorporating these likely (dare I
say) false flag lists of keywords.

And of course, they work about as well as a mouse giving an owl the finger.

Because as soon as a sigfile, form email, or any standard text is
recognized as being harmless bullshit, the most it will do is flag that
individual as oppositional.  The text itself is not jamming anything any
more than an entry in Google's SEO jams anything.

Which does bring us to an interesting question.  In the interest of not
being evil, whose search technology do you figure the feds are employing to
sift through this largest spy data repository in the world?

I have my guess.

"Don't be evil.  Let other people do it for you."

Heh.
