    It took a 15 year old boy to hack Talk Talks data base. Lumping a years worth of someones dater in fact everyone's date in one place will be a breeze to expose. I can see it now porn sites visited by Lady D or view the inner secrets of Victoria B. Sounds like lunacy to me. What do you think.....

    Apparently if you've got nothing to hide, then you've nothing to worry about.

    So people keep posting on here anyway ;)

    But it's a big bad world out there. Look what seems to have happened in Egypt recently? There are a lot of nasty folk trying to kill us, whether we are on buses or trains (7/7) or at some atrocity yet to happen.

    I can see as we post the argument being made that Corbyn's communications should be monitored as he, as a result of his stand on Trident, is a threat to national security.

    Of course our fair minded Theresa at the Home Office would surely scotch that ........ wouldn't she :)

    I
    Don't have a problem with it at all. Why shouldn't our security services be able to access stuff like that so long as their access is legal.
    Or are we advocating a nice secret internet where people can do as they want without anyone checking on them ... a pedophiles haven... a terrorists paradise and a criminals hunting ground.
    You want them on that wall....

    In my case it should be forty years, I might then be reminded of the days when I used to emulate "Rudolf Valentino" if indeed I ever did, cos I don't know if I can remember if, I can remember.:confused::confused::confused::LOL:

    Could be handy though. If ever you lost them, you could ask GCHQ to send you a backup. :D

    I obviously didn't expect anything but the sort of replies we are getting on here but nothing new in this sort of snooping as anyone's web pages have already been accessible with the nod from a judge.

    Following the recent Talk Talk fresco that was again planed and carried out by a 15 year old on a PC in his own bedroom I can see trouble on the horizon. Batching all this information together is just asking for trouble.
    Anyway anyone who doesn't want their communications monitored, just has to buy a stamp and send it by land mail. Simples.....

    It's just snooping on the general public. For all the terroristsame, pedos and others it will just be an inconvenience as they will know how to get round this and not be detected.
