Well, yeah. Why should they?

Spying is what countries do on each other, even friendly countries.

I'd like to see a stop to agreements like the five eyes bullshit, and I don't think the NSA needs to archive every single goddamn email and telephone call....but intercepting communications of people from other countries if there is due cause?

No issue what so ever.

And, if you as a private citizen have an issue, you can double up on security because you should assume people are trying to listen regardless. Hell, maybe even your own government is doing the listening.

No, you're generally proved incorrect and are just too arrogant to realize it.

Your post history is available at, FYI.

And yes, that is post history, and no, it isn't limited to your last 25 posts.

Here you can see your posts 10 pages in :

And that argument with Xest? Idiot armchair lawyer didn't understand the law as much as he thought he did. I showed him to be wrong, but he just couldn't listen.

Ahh, I love arrogant IT people who can't admit when they're wrong. It's just so amusing.

People only need to look at your post history to see more often than not you don't know what your talking about, and you're certainly not in any position to admonish others.

If Linus does have a point, he can make it professionally instead of ranting like a scorned child. If he isn't capable that, than he isn't qualified to lead.

It's not luck, it's justice. You may not like him, and may not approve of his business model, but it is all quite illegal.

The operating the USA did was an illegal seizure, based on no evidence, and the operation the NZ Police did was similarly illegal.

I would hope a court rules completely in his favor and furthermore that the US should pay damages to him.

This isn't anything to do with Kim himself, as I don't have an opinion on him. Simply that the US grossly overstepped there bounds and performed illegal acts in attempting to gather evidence on him.

Of course there are wrong opinions.

Just because opinions are subjective does not mean they can't also be wrong.

Your not offended by it or don't find it offensive? That's great.

That doesn't mean it shouldn't be changed, if it can be demonstrated to be objectively offensive to the people it caricatures.
