Re: Far too late to worry
"We've been *lawfully* spied on since 1984."
No, it's been going on much longer than that. Wireless Telegraphy Act et al, dating back much further. Also worth noting that the 1984 Bill didn't affect the vast majority of people since the only spying on Joe Public remained pretty much the same as always, which number called which number by phone. Few people had computers at home and even fewer ever went online with them.
