Gag Echelon Day

from the mess-with-spies-who-may-or-may-not-be-there dept

This one is amusing. For any of you who have read about Echelon, the apparent “global electronic spying network” that tracks all sorts of communications, and which has been talked about to death by anyone paranoid (and which was more or less admitted to by the Australians earlier this year), some folks are organizing a campaign to try to gag Echelon by having everyone append a list of “flag” words to all their emails. I’m not sure how many folks will do that, or how much of an effect it will have.
