Tor users=extremists?

Post#1 by wread » 08 Jul 2014, 15:18

If you want to keep yourself anonymous, your will be cataloged as "extemist" by the NASA. http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/ ... 48328.html This article in German describes it in detail, what the agency thinks about TOR....

I just don't want to be bothered with super quotations of Viagra, etc., etc! :D

What do you think about it???

The more people will use tor, the more there will be so-called extemists, the norm will become in being extremist, extremism will be those pretendly former normals. Who wants to be governed by Big Brother? 8)

The NSA is targeting the Linux Journal as an "extremist forum"
and flagging its readers as 'extremists',
according to source code leaked to German public broadcaster, ARD.

The XKeyscore source code rules cite the terms 'TAILs' or 'Amnesiac Incogneto Live System',along with one of either 'LINUX', 'USB', 'CD', 'secure desktop', 'IRC', 'truecrypt',and 'Tor' as search items that will mark and track a track the IP address of the person doing the search.

So now you know - you are all being watched...

...and I know why my internet is so slow... :wink:

I wonder if the FDA does the same for alternative medicine. Or some other regulatory organization for alternative living. What a joke. Because I use linux (or maybe just read the website) I am tagged as extreme? Essentially they are saying that privacy is not allowed. You may not lock your doors and close your windows. You do not have that right. Disgusting. The future is not looking so bright. Reminds me of the series 'The continuum' in which the governments went bust and were bought out by private enterprise which control everything.

Sometimes use Tor if watching exciting UT series and suddenly crucial episode missing. Some sort of geographical block. Anyway to make up for this will keep relay running thereafter.

I will make a thread on anonymity techniques soon. My ISP has no idea what I do and it would be difficult for anyone else to know either. Complete and total anonymity is achievable but takes work. Complete and total anonymity for someone being targeted by a powerful authority (i.e you are breaking laws) is nigh impossible.
