Send me a message if you want one of my lead balaclavas.

As I am not (nor intend to) planning anything

Subversive

Illegal

or even Immoral

I'll let them bore themselves to death reading whatever they want of mine.

No thank you, not feeling that light headed.

I do not accept the nothing to hide nothing to fear argument put forward by those that wish to intrude on our privacy.

I may get bored but would it be OK for me to visit your house and look through all your personal stuff. I suspect not.

I agree with Fruit Bat and others. The terrorists, drug dealers etc are the ones they are after and surveillance is nothing new. I have nothing to hide, and providing the data is not sold or used for commercial or minor issues I see no point in worrying about it.

"ould it be OK for me to visit your house and look through all your personal stuff."

We're not talking about individuals, but the state.

Would you be happy for the police, maybe Special Branch or other spooks, to enter your premises without a warrant?

I would.
