Re: My sympathy meter is broken

Someone keeps making a valid point about the new laws generated as a result of these tactics, but others keep pointing to the incident that was used to shoe-horn the door open.

Less words, more meaning, and perhaps we will find we are all on the same page.

That pedo's went to a site and got nabbed due to being hacked by the FBI seems like just deserts, but the law that now allows US law enforcement to hack any computer on the planet will not be restricted to pedo's now that it is enshrined.

If you think they won't abuse it, then well, you're just wrong.
