    Wow, that's a wild shot at unenforceable regulations from a purely technical standpoint. To even come close, they either have to ban and block all encryption which is a security nightmare, or they have to force everybody to use the same software while convincing them that tapping is good.

    Good luck with that...

    Now my take on this: :puke: Sadly this is a good news source to a degree I mean New York Times isn't just some wacko media outlet. The fact they would EVER think they had the rights to wiretap peoples internet.. WTF???

    this is their plan:

    Tell everyone we're going to wiretap the internet
    Deal with the political clashes that come from it
    Tell the country its in their best interest because of TERRORISTS!!!!
    Scare them into allowing the government monitor everything that we do on the internet
    Take legal actions against any illegal actions that come from the wiretaps this could include:

    *Prositution
    *Sexting
    *Looking up illegal activities
    *Looking up legal things but accidently coming across illegal activities
    *Catching pedophiles
    *Catching Drug dealers
    *Monitoring conversations that you may have with your significant other
    *Monitoring the websites you visit

    And in the end these things will be held against you in the court of law. Obama you make me :censored: :censored: :censored: sick. I wish 4 years would hurry up so we can get you out and replace you with someone who actually cares, at this point anyone is a better option.

    "BlackBerry CEO suggests route to eavesdropping

    By ANDREW VANACORE, AP Business Writer Andrew Vanacore, Ap Business Writer – 21 mins ago

    NEW YORK – BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd. says it has no way of providing government officials with the text of encrypted corporate e-mails its devices serve up. But if the companies that employ BlackBerry phones want to hand over the encryption keys to their e-mail, it won't object."

    That CEO is putting up a helluva fight :screwy:
