It’d be interesting to see this for this forum. How many of us are with the CIA or the NSA or Interpol or MI5 or ... (got to cut short, there are some men in black at the door)

Of course we’d deny it!

Of course, it’s all about plausible deniability. By posting here, I can always refer to this post as a hoax. But by stating it here as a hoax, is it still holding true as an untruth or an untrue untruth, or am I just confusing myself more?
It’ s all your fault! With your confusing posts. Aaargh! raspberry

You better watch out. The SIS are too classy to just kill you. The CIA are the cousin of the intellignce world that everyone’s embarassed by, that gets the special bus to school, with the kids with mitten tied to their sleeves and helmets. They’ll kill you. And probably cock it up.

Don’t be silly, Renquist.  They’d just use a second gunman to fake the Apollo landings, thereby causing the Japanese to launch a sneak attack by flying a jetliner into you.  Now, if they were to make use of the Delta Dorks. . .errr, excuse me, I meant the Delta Force, then there might be a bit of a problem with their plans being carried out.

Hopefully this time Delta Force will land in the right place and not fly the two evacuation planes into each other on take off.

I work for an agency that has no name, ‘does not exist’ and I’ve been monitoring everyone here for a very long time.  To date, the only member currently on the ‘watch list’ is hulitoons

oh wait, that’s me

I’m sure that agencies of the US government are hardly the only ones monitoring anything and everything on the internet.  I am sure there are so many countries scrambling to find someone to question that it’d make all our heads spin.  Anyone, absolutely ANYONE who has ever and continues to put anything in type on the internet is under surveillance by someone. 

I wonder just how thick each of our dossiers are becoming?

Not me though; I don’t exist

I can confidently state that I am under surveillance, due to my interest in military space operations. I regularly have DoD IP’s amongst my website visitors.

I almost applied to the CIA for a graphic designer position once. They were recruiting for designers and someone approached me about it. I thought it would be a really interesting job, but I didn’t want to move.

I’m with all of them, and tell the tall guy at the door that he took my iphone by mistake and I need it back. I’m parked down the block.

He says Wikipedia is just one place where government agencies are watching people.

Wait a minute. . .how is editing articles watching people?  It’s pretty obvious that they weren’t aware of Wikipedia keeping track of who edited what, because otherwise they would have been a bit sneakier when they edited things themselves.

And as for organisations editing the articles about themselves, that does make some sense.  After all, they ought to know about themselves better than anybody else does.  So them correcting things isn’t so bad, as long as other people can look at it and say, “Hey!  That’s not right!” in return.  It’s when they simply go through and delete stuff that they find embarrassing that you have to keep a really close eye on them.
