Why not start spying on the spies and publish every single move and action they make. Follow the spies by spying on them and publish the results. Not only celebrities are public goods, the spies who collect information should be must be as transparent as they live on and deal in public goods. What is good for the goose...

Sure, a centralized system is always prone to "deletion".
Why then not design a variant that is decentralized and no single party is in control of the data? Just like the internet, problem --> route around it.
It is not my fault!

People buy what is perceived a "good" deal. Whether the "good" is for the buyer or the seller is always a good question.
Why do people buy bottled water? The tap-water is free...
Unfortunately, now they have a very nice pool of information/images to blackmail the persons(s) displayed. What a treasure that must be for the agencies. How better control the populous than dirty tricks.
Maybe we should start collecting the like info on the agencies?
Indeed, reverse path filtering should be mandatory, especially because it is so easy.
Also, RFC3514 should become a part of the IP standard. Not setting the appropriate bit from the sender side should then be punishable with eternal flogging.
The problem, however, is that it may run afoul of European law by discriminating between national and European registered companies. It will depend heavily on the exact wording and application of the law whether the EU will allow it.
The loophole should be closed on EU level, but
Yes, but it did not hurt the bottom line. The NSA has prevented many, many economic failures. Terrorists are so last decade. The real value is in the economic edge you can blackmail from all others.

It is "Fear and consumption".
A way to keep the populations under control. The Roman Empire used "Bread and circuses".
2000 years, and nothing has changed.
But the start of a very productive work-day is upon us. The shutdown of facebook may recoup some of the lost economics from the government impasse.
Also, it reminds me of the final scene in Surrogates, where all people suddenly go outside to see the world again. It is a nice idea, though. One is allowed to dream of a better future.
Yes, time to leave...
Scott me up Beamy.
The *internet* is objectionable. There is no content that is inane. Every letter can be abused for multiple purposes. The whole internet should be an opt-in.
You at the other side of the pond have generated a farce beyond fantasy. Create secret court, abuse powers, secret court says "non", ignore, expand and repeat.
As a tech I'd say your system has found a resonance point where the loop-gain is so much greater than one that it might cause the earth's rotation to change....
