This reminds me of 1990

Back around the time that HTML was being developed a USSS agent just happened to show up at our radio club meeting. Several of us were were using IRC to discuss frequencies and listening to certain government users. I figure that he came to the meeting to get our license plate numbers and whatever info we revealed. So for a very long time US Citizens have been monitored directly, have no doubt.
