to the duck's head by the NSA and the like ?

And we can only trust DuckDuckGo by what they say ! Could it be that it's a honey pot service ? People feel secure there but everything may be silently logged as elsewhere, and shared with spy agencies without any gun.

Paranoid ? But have not modern communication channels driven us to be so ? May be it's not technology in itself, but the worst part of the human being expressing itself.

Displaced? No, just added to the list. There's nothing a bureaucracy likes more than more work to do. Bigger staff, larger budget, they win!

...yeah, right.

Did you see that study about effectiveness of the NSA mass surveillance efforts?

Except when some politician wants to make an example of someone.

A wonderful quote from the British mocumentary series, "Yes, Minister":

"We have the press office to advertise their occasional successes, and the Official Secrets Act to cover-up their daily mistakes."
