[liberationtech] DuckDuckGo and PRISM

Talking about tools that we should not recommend, I
really don't get it why DuckDuckGo is being listed
everywhere as the number one reasonable alternative
to Google considering that they are based in the US
and subject to US legislation which enables the PRISM
program. It is just 100% naive to expect that for some
magic reason DuckDuckGo is exempted from that program.

I am sure the folks are great, just like the ones
working at Google.. and the t-shirts that were distributed
at the NYC #TA3M event are really nifty. But still, why
use a service that by law has to comply to surveillance
requirements if you can use services that are outside
US jurisdiction?

Somebody please explain.

Are we suffering from the centuries old problem that
if it is "our people" doing it, then it's okay?
That's the definition of corruption, pretty much.
