i'm sure that most of you already know this, but there is a bill before congress right now that, if passed, could greatly increase the govt's power to monitor the internet via e-mail, im's, and who knows how else..... i just wanted to know people's thoughts on this

fortunately, they only have the manpower to process a tiny fraction of what they gather.
so as long as shroomers are a low priority then i'm not overly concerned.

Not true. Luckily, there are sunset provisions to the anti-terrorism bill. I believe that bill already passed.

Sure they could do it, protection bill or not. But it still would never be feasable. There is just way too much stuff they'd find on the internet that would need lots more attention to anyone of us. They won't be able to get enough manpower to get to us. But they still could, I suppose.
