Re: I Remember the Early Days of Menwith Hill

It was common knowledge at the time that the underground computers would scan all the calls and faxes for key words which caused the content to be set aside for further analysis

That was, as you say in the 70s/80s, but it sounds very much like what Snowden was talking about in more recent years. I don't understand why everyone got so het up about the Snowden thing when it was already public knowledge.

Not trolling, just genuine curiosity
